Optimal well spacing, best ways to identify sweet spots, controling fracs and frac spacing, better water treatment, maintaining production. These are just a few things we’ve learned in the last year, and it’s what we’ll talk about in San Antonio, Feb 24-26.

The Eagle Ford has come a long way in a year, and the new technologies, techniques, and lessons learned have helped operators pinpoint sweet spots, select locations, and achieve success with dizzying IPs and dramatically improved economics. The AAPG-STGS Eagle Ford Geosciences Technology Workshop Feb 24-26, in San Antonio for an intense 2-1/2-day event with presentations, lively discussions, networking receptions.

We’ve invited participants with valuable, up-to-date information that will directly impact economics on the Eagle Ford, along with new and / expanded plays.

All participants also receive access to an online repository of very valuable papers and studies, which makes the event extremely value-priced.

A partial listing of presenters includes the following (to be expanded):

A New Approach to Fracturing And Completion Operations In The Eagle Ford Shale – Robert Fulks, Weatherford

Elemental Analysis and Seismic Attributes to Map Sweet Spots – Beau Tinnin, Pioneer Natural Resources; Matthew McChesney, Pioneer Natural Resources

Searching for the Optimal Well Spacing in the Eagle Ford Shale: A Practical Tool-Kit – Douglas H. Portis, Pioneer Natural Resources; Gervasio Barzola, Pioneer Natural Resources

The Lower Woodbine (Maness Shale) of Burleson and Brazos Counties, Texas: Anatomy of a New “Old” Play – Richard L. Adams, Carr Resources; John P. Carr, Carr Resources; John A. Ward, Ph.D., Carr Resources

Effect of Non-uniform Fracture Spacing and Fracture Half-length on Well Spacing for Unconventional Gas Reservoirs – Vivek Sahai, Weatherford; Greg Jackson, Weatherford
