Texas-Gulf Coast

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, July 14
-- Clayton Williams Energy Inc., Midland, Tex., said its second Eagle Ford shale well, Smalley-Robinson Unit-1 in Burleson County, Tex., flowed 492 b/d of oil initially and 175 b/d most recently from a 5,500-ft lateral in Eagle Ford at 7,020 ft true vertical depth after a 13-stage frac.

The well is 11-1/2 miles from the first well, Broesche Unit-1, which flowed 234 b/d initially and is on pump at 46 b/d. The company will drill a third well to evaluate acreage in the western part of its Austin chalk acreage block and may drill other wells to determine whether an Eagle Ford shale drilling program is economically viable.

The company owns 100% working interest in both wells.

The Resilient Oilfield in the Internet of Things World

When Tue, Sep 22, 2015

As we hear about the hype surrounding the Internet of Things, the oil and gas industry is questioning what is different than what is already being done. What is new?  Using sensors and connecting devices is nothing new to our mode of business and in many ways the industry exemplifies many principles of an industrial internet of things. How does the Internet of Things impact the oil and gas industry?

Prolific instrumentation and automation digitized the industry and has changed the approach to business models calling for a systems led approach.  Resilient Systems have the ability to adapt to changing circumstances while maintaining their central purpose.  A resilient system, such as Maximo, allows an asset intensive organization to leverage connected devices by merging real-time asset information with other critical asset information and using that information to create a more agile organization.  

Join this webcast, sponsored by IBM, to learn how about Internet of Things capabilities and resilient systems are impacting the landscape of the oil and gas industry.
