Pre-registration without payment will not be accepted.. You may still walk up and pay at the door, if extra seats are available.. As the pace of drilling activity in the Marcellus Formation in the northern Appalachian 21 Basin has increased, so has the number of alleged incidents of stray natural gas migration to two shallow aquifer systems.. For this study, more than 1,900 gas and water samples were analyzed for molecular composition and stable isotope compositions of methane and ethane.. The samples are from Quaternary to Middle Devonian-age strata in a five-county study area in northeastern Pennsylvania.. Samples were collected from 181 gas wells during mudgas logging programs and from 67 private water supply wells during baseline groundwater-quality testing programs.. Evaluation of this database reveals that microbial, mixed microbial/thermogenic, and thermogenic gases occur in some shallow aquifer systems, and  ...   geochemistry provides evidence of gas origin and secondary processes that may have affected the gases during migration..

Reservoir Characterization and Modeling of Upper Jurassic Microbial Carbonate Reservoirs, Northern Gulf of Mexico.. Ernest A.. Mancini.. Berg-Hughes Center and Department of Geology and Geophysics, Texas A M University,.. College Station, TX.. In the northern Gulf of Mexico, Upper Jurassic Smackover carbonate ramp, shallow-water.. microbial buildups developed on paleotopographic paleohighs (Paleozoic crystalline basement or.. Jurassic salt features) or on antecedent depositional topography.. These microbialites included.. calcimicrobes, red algae, foraminifera, sponges, echinoids and bivalves and attained a thickness.. of 58 m.. Buildups were best developed on a hard substrate during a rise in sea level under initial.. zero to low background sedimentation rates in low-energy and fluctuating environmental.. conditions.. Extensive microbial growth occurred in response to available accommodation space.. The demise of the microbialites corresponded to changes in environmental conditions associated.. with an overall regression of the sea.. Smackover carbonates are overlain by Haynesville (Buckner) anhydrite or argillaceous beds and.. unconformably overlie Norphlet sandstone beds or Paleozoic igneous and metamorphic rocks.. Smackover lithofacies have been identified from the study of wireline logs, cores and thin.. sections.. For buildups on Paleozoic paleohighs, these facies include, in descending order, (1).. peritidal and lagoonal dolomudstone and dolowackestone, (2) shallow subtidal nearshore and.. shoal ooid dolograinstone and oncoidal and peloidal dolopackstone, and (3) subtidal peloidal.. doloboundstone..

Although the principal control on reservoir architecture and geographic distribution of.. Smackover reservoirs is the fabric and texture of the depositional facies, diagenesis (chiefly.. dissolution and dolomitization) is a significant factor that preserves and enhances reservoir.. quality.. Porosity in the microbial boundstone facies is a mixture of primary shelter and fenestral.. porosity overprinted by secondary dolomite intercrystalline and vuggy porosity..

Cost:.. $30 for SIPES Members and Chapter Affiliates who register by 12:00 Noon Tuesday; $35 for new registrations at the door.. In the year 2000, shale gas represented just 1 percent of American natural gas supplies.. Today, it is 30 percent and the percentage continues to increase.. The technology to drill and fracture the shale formations is now exported to the rest of the world, and the national oil and gas reserves have increased in many other countries.. The thickness of the shale formations is often just a few hundred feet, so new highresolution technologies are needed to visualize the structure and the natural distribution and orientation of fractures in these thin shale layers.. Diffraction imaging can be used to complement the structural images produced by conventional processing as it generates an additional image volume of high resolution disconformities such as small scale faults and fractures, pinch-outs, or salt flanks.. Figure 1: Details on a fault from a synthetic model.. (a) Kirchhoff migration stack using the exact velocity model.. (b) Diffraction imaging stack of the same data.. High resolution imaging of the small scale fractures (Figure 1) in shale reservoirs improves production and recovery efficiency, reduces field development cost, and decreases the environmental impact of developing the field by using fewer wells to optimally produce the reservoir.. This technology is not yet deployed in the industry and is a fundamental advance in high resolution 3-D prestack data imaging of complex geological structures.. Current diffraction imaging research has identified a new approach to image small scale faults, pinchouts, salt flanks, reflector unconformities, in general any small scattering objects, by using diffraction imaging as a complement to the structural images produced by reflection imaging (Shitvelman and Keydar 2004; Taner, Fomel, and Landa, 2006; Fomel, Landa, and Taner, 2006; Khaidukov, Landa, and Moser, 2004; Moser and Howard, 2008; Moser, 2009; Klokov, et al.. , 2010; Klokov, Baina, and Landa, 2011; Dell and Gajewski, 2011).. Diffraction imaging (Figure 2) can be used as a complement to the structural images produced by conventional processing, to image and visualize the structure and the natural fracture distribution and orientation in thin shale layers.. Diffraction imaging is simply the process of using diffractions to focus and image the structural elements that produced diffraction surfaces.. Since diffractors are, by definition, smaller than the wavelength of seismic waves, diffraction imaging provides super-resolution information,  ...   of Reflectivity, EAGE Subsalt Imaging Workshop: Focus on Azimuth, Cairo, Egypt, Expanded Abstracts..

Nicot, and Ian Duncan Bureau of Economic Geology, Jackson School of Geosciences, University of Texas at Austin.. Date: Wednesday, December 12, 2012.. Location: Black Lab in the Churchill Room.. 4100 Montrose Blvd.. , Houston 77006.. Time: Social hour at 5:30 pm.. Presentation at 7:00 pm.. Population growth and overall increase in water demand in the state of Texas has drawn attention to a seemingly new water user: the oil and gas industry.. Historically using fresh water to initiate waterfloods in West Texas, the industry’s water needs have switched to hydraulic fracturing in many plays across the state in the past decade.. They include the so-called shale plays such as the Barnett, Haynesville, Eagle Ford, and Wolfcamp plays but also tight gas and tight oil such as the Cotton Valley in East Texas and the Spraberry in West Texas.. Contrasts in climatic conditions control the amount of surface water vs.. groundwater being used and the reliance on non-fresh water  ...   compared to the state water consumption at ~18 million acre-feet.. Understanding the sources of water for hydraulic fracturing (surface water, groundwater, water reuse, fresh versus brackish water) and quantities of water is critical for assessing potential environmental impacts of shale gas production in Texas.. Bridget Scanlon is a Senior Research Scientist at the University of Texas at Austin, with 25 years of.. experience in many aspects of hydrology.. She has authored ~50 refereed journal articles.. Her research.. group evaluates sustainability issues with respect to water resources, considering both water quantity.. and water quality issues, for agriculture, municipal, and energy sectors.. In her recent work she has.. collaborated with Dr.. Nicot on water requirements for shale gas production.. She is also involved in work.. related to water use for electricity generation in the state and vulnerability to droughts..

  • Title: HGS General Dinner - Shelf-to-Basin Depositional Systems: Analogs for Deep-water Reservoirs Systems from the Pleistocene of offshore Indonesia | Houston Geological Society
    Descriptive info: HGS General Dinner - Shelf-to-Basin Depositional Systems: Analogs for Deep-water Reservoirs Systems from the Pleistocene of offshore Indonesia.. Total Seats: 100 Reserved: 57.. Shelf-to-Basin Depositional Systems: Analogs for Deep-water Reservoirs.. Art Saller.. Date: Monday, December 10, 2012.. Pleistocene shelf margin, slope, and basinal strata in offshore East Kalimantan, Indonesia, are clearly imaged in 3D seismic data.. These data give insights into controls on slope and basin-floor systems that are major hydrocarbon reservoirs throughout the world.. Siliciclastic sequences on the shelf are dominated by progradational packages deposited during highstands and falling eustatic sea level.. During some, but not all, lowstands of sea level, coarse siliciclastic sediments were transported off the shelf and into deep water.. During the late Pleistocene, siliciclastic sediment supply determined the depositional characteristics of the slope.. Channe l - l e ve e compl exe s developed on the slope where deltaic sediment supply was large (Figure 1).. In contrast, incised valleys/canyons formed on the slope where siliciclastic input was limited (Figure 2).. Pleistocene channel-levee complexes can be traced upslope to lowstand deltas associated with the paleo- Mahakam River.. In areas with limited sediment supply, significant rivers and deltas were generally not present on the outer shelf, including areas upslope from incised slope valleys and canyons.. Strata on the basin floor downslope of the slope valleys and canyons are dominated by mass-transport complexes, which suggests that slope valleys and canyons were formed by mass failures of the slope, not by erosion associated with turbidite sands derived from rivers or deltas.. In the a re a wi th l imi ted sediment supply, one small river was present on the shelf margin dur ing the upper Pleistocene..
