People disagree about what exactly constitutes a “sweet spot” but everyone agrees that there are highly producible zones in heterogeneous reservoirs. Being able to identify those highly producible zones, and then develop a way to drill them, complete them, and produce them cost-effectively makes all the difference.

But, how can you do that? There are new processes and procedures, and being able to successfully exploit a highly producible zone requires guidance from experts. AAPG is committed to providing that kind of guidance, and to create a setting that encourages interaction and practical knowledge sharing. The Sweet Spots and Reservoir Compartmentalization Geosciences Technology Workshop, August 6-7, in Houston, holds out the possibility of a fantastic ROI in your investment of time and energy. If you are able to hit the highly producible zones and successfully exploit them, you have a resource you can do a great deal with.

Here is a preliminary list of presentations (in alphabetical order by presenter last name):
