 “Applying Fundamentals “101” of Unconventional Shale Production to the Exploration and Development of the Wolfcamp “A”, Wolfcamp “B”, and Lower Spraberry Shale – A Case Study

 

This talk will provide a brief review of the fundamentals of hydrocarbon production from unconventional reservoirs – i.e. how does a shale produce with no conventional permeability(?). We will also review the three factors of rock mechanics necessary for commercial production in unconventional reservoirs using a recent 20,000 acre case study to identify a reservoir target for exploration and development.

Keith Skaar began working the ‘Wolfberry’ play in November of 2006 contracting with various companies to acquire over 140,000 acres extending the development of the ‘Wolfberry’ play to the east side of the Midland Basin.   In 2009, Keith agreed to lead the geologic effort for Element Petroleum’s ‘Wolfberry’ project resulting in over $ 1.1 Billion dollars in net production and property sales over the past three years.   After graduating from Baylor University with a BS in Petroleum Geology in 1984, Keith worked for numerous independents developing prospects in various basins covering the domestic U.S..  In 1992, Keith began a career as an exploration geologist working the Permian Basin for Independent Petroleum firms establishing commercial discoveries and production throughout the Permian Basin.  Most recently, Element Petroleum commercially extended the upper Wolfcamp Horizontal play in 2013 with the SFH Unit 23 # 1 (7300’ upper WFMP lateral – 800 BOE/EUR) by over 45 miles into north central Howard County and in 2014 extended the lower Spraberry Shale Play by 32 miles into north west Howard County adding a minimum of 20 Billion barrels of oil recoverable from these unconventional plays to the Midland Basin
