Usman Ahmed is CTO of unconventional oil and gas resources technology and executive technical advisor to WellDog, and more recently, vice president and chief reservoir engineer at Baker Hughes. He previously worked for Schlumberger, TerraTek, and his own reservoir and production engineering consulting firm, Energy Resources International/5(5).

Oil exploration and exploitation, the major anthropogenic activities in the Niger Delta region since the discovery of crude oil inhave caused the spill of at least 9–13 million barrels of crude oil, making the region one among the five most severely damaged ecosystems in the world.

The biodiversity richness of the Niger Delta, which. Shale Oil and Gas Handbook: Theory, Technologies, and Challenges provides users with information on how shale oil and gas exploration has revolutionized today’s energy industry.

As activity has boomed and job growth continues to increase, training in this area for new and experienced engineers is essential. Unconventional Gas and Tight Oil Exploitation takes an in-depth look at unconventional low-permeability resource accumulations, the required technologies for specialized development, and the assessments currently being an author team of 14 subject-matter experts with specialization in different tight oil and unconventional-gas areas, this new book is an 10/10(1).

New technologies in the oil and natural gas sectors have enabled the explosion of production growth in the United States known as the Shale Revolution.A combination of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling allows producers to access reserves of oil and gas from low-permeability geological formations that were previously too expensive to extract.

Energy stocks have been tearing higher since the election on bets that the Trump administration will relax environmental restrictions and open more federal lands to oil and gas drilling. Crude oil Author: John Mauldin.

In order to make it easier to invest in oil and natural gas explo-ration in Québec, the Government has introduced a refundable tax credit. This credit’s base rate is 20%.

This rate is increased to 40% of admissible costs when a company is not operating any oil or natural gas wells. The refundable tax credit applies to oil and natural gas explo-File Size: 1MB. Oil and Gas The basic process from exploration to marketing of oil and natural gas can be divided into four or five distinct phases, as shown in Figure Exploration activities (Phases I and II in the figure) are the same for oil and gas.

However, the commercial-ization process (Phases III through V) becomes quite different once oil or File Size: 1MB. Bob Hardage of the University of Texas Bureau of Economic Geology is an expert of the use of this technology for oil and gas exploration. He spoke to EarthSky’s Mike Brennan.

The steps that lead to the production of oil and gas are diverse, complex and costly. They are diverse because the detection of oil and gas involves input from many specialties, ranging from geology to reservoir engineering. They are complex, as shown by the development of the job of the petroleum architect, who coordinates all the operations.5/5(1).

Many beginning oil company exploration geologists or geophysicists get caught up in the technical aspects of subsurface analysis, but find out quickly that the business aspects of making money drive the technical work, not the other way around.

This is a critical point to remember from this chapter on methods of oil and gas Size: KB. Exploration methods. Visible surface features such as oil seeps, natural gas seeps, pockmarks (underwater craters caused by escaping gas) provide basic evidence of hydrocarbon generation (be it shallow or deep in the Earth).

However, most exploration depends on highly sophisticated technology to detect and determine the extent of these deposits using exploration geophysics. Oil & Natural Gas Exploration. Reserve Energy brings a long and successful history of identifying viable fossil fuel development projects throughout the Appalachian Basin.

Our expert geologists use sophisticated exploration techniques such as seismic and geo-chemical surveys to locate profitable energy sites.

The typical recovery factor from water-flood operations is about 30%, depending on the properties of the oil and the characteristics of the reservoir rock. Oil reserves denote the amount of crude oil that can be technically recovered at a cost that is financially feasible at the present price of oil.

Hence reserves will change with the price, unlike oil resources, which include all oil that can be technically recovered at any es may be for a well, a reservoir, a field, a nation, or the world.

Michael Blaha and John Craven cofounded Cove Energy, one of the most dramatic recent exploration success stories in the oil-and-gas sector. Cove started in as a £1 million shell company; a little more than three years later, Thailand’s national oil company, PTT Exploration and Production, bought it for £ billion.

In support of this goal, the UNICEF Extractive Pilot Oil and Gas Scoping Study encompasses three primary objectives: 1. Identify the current impacts of the oil and gas sector on children’s rights. Understand how companies in this sector are managing these impacts.

Determine how UNICEF can best engage with the oil and gas sector.

Oil and Natural Gas Resources and Technology Size: KB. Oil and Gas Exploration: Methods and Application presents a summary of new results related to oil and gas prospecting that are useful for theoreticians and practical study of oil and gas complexes and intrusions occurring in sedimentary basins is crucial for identifying the location of oil and gas fields and for making accurate predictions on oil findings.

Exploration and exploitation of Oil and Gas (Petroleum) IESL_ Media. Oil and Gas: Basics, the Value Risk and Uncertainty in Exploration for Oil and Gas January. The practical aspects of analyzing production performance has changed due to the increased exploitation efforts in unconventional reservoirs.

Analysis of Oil and Gas Production Performance expands on these developing well-evaluation procedures and includes the latest best practices for new areas of shale and tight formation reservoirs.

Commonly, these resources are oil or gas-bearing formations with very low permeability and porosity. Shale gas is an unconventionalnatural gas found in shale rocks and is. The location, drilling, completion, and equipment of wells necessary to produce the commercially recoverable oil and gas in a field.

In the petroleum industry, a field is an area underlain without substantial interruption by one or more reservoirs of commercially valuable oil or gas, or : Roy L. Chenault. History of Oil: The Major Companies Era. To understand how the oil and gas industry works, it is also important to understand how it has changed over time.

The key factor in the industry development is who controls the key asset, the oil and gas reserves. The history of the oil industry is one of radical shifts in control and dominance.
