It’s just another well?
A geoscientist’s perspective on what’s important in unconventional resource development.

Brought to you LIVE from SPE/ATCE in Denver by Weatherford

Though unconventional plays are rich in resources and high in economic potential, many challenges can be associated with the development of these fields. Have you experienced the challenges of tight project economics, significant geologic uncertainty, large engineering initiatives, multiple wells, rapid decline rates, high service intensity and costs? 

Robert Gales, VP Unconventional Projects, has a massive breadth of knowledge around all aspects of these plays. He will share his perspective on how in some ways an unconventional project is just like any other project, but on the other hand it can be much more than that. Robert will discuss the integration of multiple data sets to decrease reservoir uncertainty, optimal well design and service integration, combined with rigorous project execution to achieve optimum efficiency.

We invite petroleum, reservoir, completion, and drilling engineers, geoscientists and asset managers to view our “It’s Just Another Well?” webcast to have your many questions answered by the unconventional guru, Robert Gales.
