“Theory, Application, Discovery: From OGCS Talk to Drilling to Production!”

"Application of an OCGS Presentation results in economic production"

By John A. Brett, III

Where is your next exploration or development idea coming from?  Why not the next OCGS technical presentation?  That is exactly where the technical methods came from that took a tired, uneconomic prospect to a profitable venture. 

An OCGS luncheon meeting  unexpectedly unlocked a way to calculate the potential oil column of a low perm Lansing reservoir in the Hugoton Embayment,  resulting in the patience to drill “one more well”.  Ted Beaumont’s presentation in 2004 explained how capillary pressures and buoyancy pressure are related, and even measurable.  This presentation will show the field development history and the impact of the application on developing additional reserves.

From now on, I always try to take away some nugget from any talk I attend- you should too.  It might just pay dividends!

John A. Brett, III graduated from Oklahoma State University in 1984 with a BS in geology and began his career in oil and gas exploration for Leeman Energy Corporation in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.  He was later employed by Carl E. Gungoll Exploration for 4 years as a prospecting geologist.  In 1994 he formed Brett Exploration, LLC to provide geological and geophysical consulting services as well as prospect generation and marketing.  The last 16 years he has been on retainer with Raydon Exploration, Inc. focusing on oil and gas exploration and development primarily in the Midcontinent.  In January of 2016, he began Jasper Energy, LC to explore and develop the Midcontinent.

He formerly served as president of the Oklahoma City Geological Society.  He recently served as a director of the Boone Pickens School of Geology Alumni Advisory Committee at Oklahoma State University.  He currently serves as the secretary of the AAPG Midcontinent Section.
