Basic Log Analysis for the Marginal Well Operator

If you ever heard of Basic Petroleum Geology for the Non-Geologist by Dr. Norman Hyne, this is Basic Log Analysis for the Marginal Well Operator by Mike Stafford. Formation Evaluation & Log Analysis is a deep and complex science that requires years of practice before one can really be considered proficient at the subject. However, the Marginal Well Operator that understands the basic science of what the tools are actually measuring along with the story the tools are telling will make sound and confident decisions whether his or her well has economically productive formations behind-pipe. This purpose of this course is to provide the Marginal Operator with the tools and knowledge to be confident in interpreting open-hole resistivity and porosity logs in order to be able to determine formation lithology and to calculate initial saturations and moveable oil. This will include determining formation temperature formation water resistivity (Rw), sample lag time and other useful subjects as time permits. This workshop will be held in a computer lab and be a hands-on learning experience using downloaded logs and MS Excel. Please bring a simple calculator capable of performing squares and square roots.

Leasing in Today's World

As the Oil and Gas industry has evolved, so has the Oil and Gas Lease. The Oil and Gas Lease is the basic instrument used in oil and gas development that controls the relationship between the operator and mineral owner. This relationship is can be adversarial, but should be symbiotic.

An Oil and Gas Lease is the document that controls how payments and future exploration will occur. It is the legal instrument executed by a mineral owner that grants the exclusive right to another to explore, drill and produce Oil and Gas from a particular piece of land.

This class will examine some of the recent clauses that are have become popular, while examine how they affect the operator as well as the royalty owner. Remember, virtually everything in the Oil and Gas Lease is negotiable.

Lunch And Learn: JMARK

Many of today’s most brazen criminals are looking to do something very simple and straightforward when they attack: lock you out of your own network until you pay a ransom in exchange for access. As computer security has become more complex and reliable, and thus harder to beat, cyber criminals are increasingly turning to social engineering—the use of deceptive means to trick a person into giving up information that allows the criminal access to your network and data. This approach has proven to be very effective for the bad guys, and devastating for those businesses that are unprepared. JMARK has recently been ranked as one of the best I.T. security providers in the world, and CEO Tom Douglas will shine a light on the common tricks hackers use, explain how these attacks can be defeated, and list out the most important steps you can take to prepare your business to beat the bad guys at their own game.

Oil & Gas Measurement 101

Oil and gas is measured prior to leaving the well site and passes through a series of verification measures that may include gas meters or manual checking of oil storage tank levels. In Oil & Gas Measurement 101, attendees will learn the factors that must be considered during testing and measurement to ensure production is suitable for the market and to verify the volumes being sold. Attendees will learn the dynamics of tank gauging to determine product volume, how to accurately use field meters to measure the flow of liquids and gases, as well as a series of other topics. This class will only be offered once in 2020, so don’t miss this opportunity and sign up now!

Oklahoma Geological Survey Well Viewer

The Oklahoma Geological Survey (OGS) initiated an effort to develop a comprehensive database of Oklahoma’s geoscience and natural resource data that will be free and accessible to the public via a spatially driven, map-based web application. Contents of the database will include digitally preserved images of OGS core and data holdings, publications, and research that will be synthesized with a master record of georeferenced Oklahoma oil and gas wells and associated production values. In addition to in-house collection data, OGS has partnered with the Oklahoma Corporation Commission and Oklahoma Tax Commission in order to serve as the comprehensive online source for state natural resource data. Representatives of OGS will soon be demonstrating the beta release of the online well viewer application among Oklahoma’s oil and gas community.
