To guarantee a seat, you must pre-register on the HGS website and pre-pay with a credit card.. Monday, May 20, at 5:00 a.. Speaker: Martin Oldani.. Apache Corporation.. The Apache Egypt Story; 18 Years of Success and Growth in Egypt's Western Desert, 1994-2012.. Apache Corporation, founded in 1954, is one of the largest independent oil and gas exploration and production companies in the United States, with operations in the United States, Canada, Egypt, the United Kingdom North Sea, Australia and Argentina.. Apache’s global production averaged over 800,000 barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) per day during the fourth quarter of 2012.. Over the past 18 years, Apache’s Egypt Region has grown to be a significant contributor to this total, having closed out 2012 with fourth quarter average daily production at over 161,000 net barrels of oil equivalent (BOE), just over 20% of Apache’s total production.. Apache entered Egypt in 1994 by acquiring a 25 percent nonoperated interest in the Qarun Concession with Phoenix Resource Companies.. After several encouraging early discoveries, Apache increased its exposure to the country’s multiple producing basins via a merger with Phoenix in May 1996.. This action tripled Apache’s interest in the Qarun Concession and added a 40 percent interest in the Western Desert’s prolific Khalda Concession.. By yearend 1996, the company held over 6 million net acres in Egypt, had booked reserves of nearly 59 MMBOE, and had net production of 12,000 barrels of oil per day.. In contrast, at the end of 2012 and on the heels of producing a net 516 million barrels of oil since 1996 (Figure 1), Apache Egypt’s booked reserves stood at just over 273 MMBOE.. In 2001, Apache’s $410 million Repsol acquisition made them the largest producer of liquid hydrocarbons in Egypt’s Western Desert and the second largest producer of natural gas.. Apache became the operator in seven Western Desert concessions, the most significant of which was and still is the prolific Khalda/Khalda Offset Concession.. With increased interests and a very active exploration and development program, Apache also became Egypt’s largest U.. S.. investor.. In mid-2003, Apache experienced another step change in Egypt with the drilling of Qasr 1X, located in the south-central portion of the Khalda Concession.. It remains the largest discovery in the company’s history and in the Western Desert of Egypt.. Logs identified a 670- foot hydrocarbon column.. Reserves for the 13,000-acre structure, after the drilling of only three wells, were estimated to be 2 trillion cubic feet of natural gas and 20 to 70 million barrels of condensate.. At the close of 2012, Apache remains the largest producer in the Western Desert and has grown to be the second largest producer in all of Egypt.. Apache holds 9.. 7 million gross acres in 23 concessions, 20 with established production (Figure 2).. Apache has built the largest onshore 3D seismic database in Egypt, with 71 surveys that cover 44,200 km2, an area the size of Vermont plus New Hampshire.. The company is the most active driller in Egypt; Apache has drilled over 2,151 wells in Egypt since 1995 (Figure  ...   Field, where it all started (67 MMBO), Jade Field (12 MMBO, 127 BCFG), Heba Ridge (21 MMBO), Asala Ridge (17 MMBO), and ED-NED Field (17 MMBOE).. Most recently, since the acquisition of the Abu Gharadig-Razzak development leases from BP in late 2010, 10 new field discoveries have been drilled and extensive development drilling and waterflood programs have been put in place as of the end of 2012.. These actions raised production from 22 MBOE/D to over 45 MBOE/D on these properties.. Apache is well positioned for continued exploration success in Egypt’s Western Desert.. The track record for industry exploration success rates remain high at over 50%.. Oil quality is good and condensate-rich gas is typical.. A large number of reasonably sized (5-20 MMBOE) prospects remain and 3D seismic continues to improve imaging of new and deeper prospects.. The Western Desert creaming curve continues to trend upward through time which indicates that the province is not yet fully mature.. In 2013 Apache plans to continue to exploit these remaining opportunities aggressively with 66 exploration and approximately 200 development wells planned.. MARTIN J.. OLDANI is a geologist currently on assignment in Cairo, Egypt with Apache Corporation as Exploration Manager for Apache Egypt’s operating company, Khalda Petroleum.. While in Egypt he has filled several roles with Apache Egypt, initially in June 2000 as a Senior Geological Advisor with Apache Egypt’s operating company Qarun Petroleum, from 2001-2010 as the Exploration Manager for Qarun Petroleum, and since January 2010 in his current capacity at Khalda Petroleum.. During his tenure in Egypt, he has continuously been in a leading role and contributed to Apache’s successful exploration and development efforts across the Western Desert of Egypt.. Mr.. Oldani has been with Apache for the past 22 years, where he worked in the Gulf Coast Onshore Region and as an explorationist involved with Apache’s exploration and development activities in South Louisiana and the Upper Texas Gulf Coast prior to his move overseas.. Prior to joining Apache, his career focus was primarily exploration in South Louisiana, with side efforts offshore in the Gulf of Mexico, in South Texas, and in the East Texas Basin with Sandefer Oil and Gas, Wintershall (Tricentrol), Texas Brine Corporation’s Solar Petroleum subsidiary, and with First Mississippi Corporation’s First Energy subsidiary.. Throughout his career, Mr.. Oldani has been very active with professional society activities.. He is a State of Texas Licensed Professional Geologist, and an American Association of Petroleum Geologists’ Certified Petroleum Geologist, and he remains an active member of the AAPG, EAGE, and HGS..

Quantitative Seismic Geomorphology: Revolutionizing.. our Picture of the Paleo-Earth.. Quantitative seismic geomorphology (QSG), the extraction of quantitative geomorphic insights from predominantly 3D seismic data, is a rapidly evolving discipline that facilitates the study of the subsurface, by use of plan-view seismic images.. Where available, these data can be combined with core and well data to add real insight into the processes active in, and the geomorphologic history of, entire paleo-continental margins.. A variety of analytical techniques is employed to image and visualize depositional elements and other geologically significant features.. Likewise, over a century of study of modern geomorphic systems and processes, enables empirical relationships to be derived from study of reservoir morphologies in seismic data.. QSG offers the geoscientist new data to add to their interpretation and renders a detail of spatial understanding not afforded through the sole study of outcrops, wells, and cores.. We will look at several case studies in Indonesia, Morocco, and the northern and  ...   This talk will discuss the manner in which QSG revolutionizes our picture of the earth, past and present.. DR..

  • Title: HGS General Dinner - Influence of the Edwards Plateau on Frontier History of the Texas Hill Country | Houston Geological Society
    Descriptive info: HGS General Dinner - Influence of the Edwards Plateau on Frontier History of the Texas Hill Country.. Total Seats: 100 Reserved: 69.. Monday, May 13, 2013.. You may walk up and pay at the door if extra seats are available.. Monday, May 13, at 5:00 a.. Speaker: Peter R.. Rose.. Rose Associates.. Influence of the Edwards Plateau on Frontier History of the Texas Hill Country.. The Edwards Plateau is an immense, high-standing tableland that covers more than 25,000 square miles of west-central Texas and is the geomorphic expression of the thick, resistant Edwards Limestone.. Rainfall tends to sink into the permeable limestone terranes on top of the Plateau, rather than run off.. Because the clayey formations underlying the porous Edwards Limestone mass are relatively impervious, ground water accumulates in the lower part of the Edwards, forming an extensive regional aquifer up to 300 feet thick.. This ground water is the source of all the springs around the margins of the Plateau.. The consequences of this geology are unusual: a vast, elevated, waterless plain, dissected around its margins by deep, limestone-cliffed canyons, each fed by perennial springs that form the headwaters of all the rivers in west-central Texas.. This singular geologic / geomorphic / hydrologic combination exerted a profound influence on settlement and development of the region during the late 19th century.. All frontier settlements were proximal to perennial, spring-fed streams, but the Edwards Plateau itself, because of its rugged margins and the absence of dependable surface water on top, constituted a formidable wilderness barrier to permanent habitation.. Early road networks mostly went around the Plateau, and the Western Beef Trail skirted its eastern margins.. During the 1870s, Indians who raided southeastward from the High Plains, and northeastward from Coahuila State, Mexico, utilized the flat, thick-turfed plateau uplands as wilderness pathways to fall suddenly upon unsuspecting settlements around the margins of the Plateau.. Their presence inhibited permanent Anglo settlement.. In 1873, the U.. S.. Army began to suppress raids into Texas by Comanche and Kiowa Indians.. Even though Kickapoo and Lipan Indians continued to raid from safe-havens in northern Mexico, opportunistic Anglo-Celtic cattlemen and homesteaders began to settle the wide apron of open, stream-laced lands  ...   lawmen, and gradually brought order and law to the region.. In 1882 regional railroads were completed that skirted the Edwards Plateau, which put an end to the cattle drives and regional stagecoach lines.. The plateau uplands began to be settled in the mid-1880s, when the widespread use of cable-tool drilling and windmills began to provide reliable water sources for livestock and permanent habitations; barbed wire allowed ranchers to control their grazing herds.. The frontier era in the western Hill Country of Texas was over.. PETER R.. ROSE P.. G.. (BS, MA, PhD, Geology, University of Texas at Austin) is a certified petroleum geologist who was Staff Geologist with Shell Oil Company; Chief, Oil and Gas Branch of the U.. Geological Survey; and Chief Geologist and Director of Frontier Exploration for Energy Reserves Group, Inc.. (now BHP Petroleum (Americas), Inc.. ).. In 1980, he established his own independent oil and gas consulting firm, Telegraph Exploration, Inc.. His clients include most major U.. companies and many prominent independents as well as many international firms and state oil companies.. Rose has explored for oil and gas in most North American geological provinces and has published and lectured widely on U.. resource assessment, basin analysis, play development, prospect evaluation, and risk and uncertainty in exploration.. He has taught extensively at the professional level and was a 1985/1986 AAPG Distinguished Lecturer.. Since 1989 he has been deeply involved in design and implementation of comprehensive exploration risk analysis systems for executive management of many major and independent oil companies, operating in both the Domestic and International theaters..

Speakers:.. Michael D.. Campbell.. P.. , P.. H.. I2M Associates, LLC, and.. Henry M.. Wise, P.. SWS Environmental Services.. Hydrogeologic Risks in the Ground-Water Supply of Harris County, Texas:.. Radioactive Constituents, Natural Gas, and Growth Faults.. Abstract.. We have been involved in a number of environmental projects in Harris County where groundwater was found to contain radioactive constituents and natural gas, all related in one way or another to the presence of growth faults in the immediate area.. In the early 1980s drinking water wells located in selected areas of northwest and south-central Harris County were tested for radioactive constituents, including radon-222 and radium-266.. A number of them exhibited unusually high concentrations of these constituents.. Uranium was reported during the U.. DOE NURE program in the 1970s and 1980s to be present across Harris County.. In the late 1980s, others also reported on radium and radon.. The USGS has more recently conducted sampling of selected municipal utility district water wells (MUD wells).. We will place these reports and occurrences into a geological context of the associated growth-fault systems in the area.. The source of these radioactive constituents in the groundwater from MUD water wells completed in the Evangeline Aquifer are likely from formations well below the Evangeline Aquifer.. We have also conducted investigations on selected high-production municipal utility district water wells (MUD wells).. Two such MUD wells were investigated by downhole CCTV and by sampling the produced groundwater and headspace of the particular well for natural gas, including methane, ethane, ethylene, propane, propylene, iso-butane, n-butane, iso-pentane, n-pentane and hexanes.. The results of this sampling will be discussed with some discussion regarding the actions taken.. Further investigations revealed that another MUD well in the FM-1960 area also produces anomalous natural gas in the produced groundwater.. Steps were subsequently taken by the particular MUD to remove these contaminants from the groundwater by adding de-gassing systems at the wellhead.. The source of the natural gas produced in groundwater from the Evangeline Aquifer or below will be discussed.. The application of carbon-13 and deuterium in methane to determine the likely source of methane also will be discussed  ...   and has served on a number of editorial boards of the major technical journals in his field.. He is a Fellow in the Geological Society of America, a Fellow in the Society of Economic Geologists and has been a member of other societies, many for more than 40 years, including HGS, who published a book in 1977 on the..

  • Title: SEG - SPE Workshop - Seismic While Drilling: Managing Risk and Optimizing Well Placement | Houston Geological Society
    Descriptive info: SEG - SPE Workshop - Seismic While Drilling: Managing Risk and Optimizing Well Placement.. 1–3 May 2013.. Moody Gardens Hotel Spa.. Galveston Island, Texas.. Seismic While Drilling:.. Managing Risk and Optimizing Well Placement.. Registration and Housing now open – Abstract deadline extended to 18 March!.. Top international E P operators, service companies, and applied research personnel will gather to discuss the latest advances in Seismic-While-Drilling (SWD) and the processing and integration of SWD data with other geophysical data.. This two-day single track workshop will explore the need for drillers, geophysicists, geologists, and petrophysicists to work together developing SWD applications and technology.. Drilling in complex geologic settings, especially offshore and in environmentally sensitive locations, often results in surprises, unexpected hazards, and increased costs.. The result is that many times the potential oil and gas reserves are not discovered or are not developed in such a way as to obtain maximum recovery of existing hydrocarbons..  ...   borehole.. Interruption of the drilling process increases operating costs and risks.. SWD helps overcome the higher costs and risks, provides the geophysicists and drillers with valuable information to optimize drilling efficiency, to guide to the target with the ability to predict pore pressure ahead of the bit, and to verify reservoir models in real-time.. This workshop is being designed to identify the safety and environmental benefits of Seismic While Drilling and to accelerate its adoption by the industry.. This event will feature informal technical presentations each followed by discussion with the audience.. Abstracts for presentations will be solicited with a call which will be available on this website in early December.. All presentations will be selected by the Workshop Committee..
