2012 Appalachian Basin Gas Well Seminar Sessions - Abstracts, Presentations, Papers

Copies of abstracts, presentations, and papers will be placed in this section as they become available.

Note: Formal papers are desired, but are not required. To make a presentation, we must receive an abstract and a copy of the actual presentation slides. Documents which have been received and are available are shown in underlined blue text. They may be accessed by clicking on them.

Note: Abstracts are to be submitted on or before March 31, 2012.  If your Abstract is submitted after that date, there is a god chance there will not be room in the Program for  your presentation.  The Abstract Review Committee will meet in early April to finalize the organization of each Technical Session.  We will choose the best three Abstracts for each session.

Presentations are to be submitted on or before May 11, 2012.  We are serious about this date. We need time to review each Presentation and then the author(s) need time to correct their Presentations.  We DO NOT want to be receiving Presentations at the last minute.  This isn't fair to the Workshop Committee and it isn't fair to the author(s).

Summary

Outline

Leading questions:     

  • What positions do we have in the room?

  • What forms are most popular in your field of wells?

  • How many of you use more than one or two forms of lift?

  • Why do you use those forms of lift?

  • Have you ever considered other forms of lift?

  • After being a part of this Deliquification seminar what forms peek your interest?......why?

  • How would you go about getting into using another form of lift?

  • Would your field personnel embrace another form of lift?

Issues for Wells Drilled/Completed in Shale

 

Summary

Outline

Discussion will revolve around the conditions and issues that make producing fluids from shale formations unique. Goal will be to identify the equipment and techniques that have been used to successfully produce fluids from wells completed in shale formations.

 

The group will investigate the critical factors that need to be considered when producing fluids from shale gas wells and how liquid loading impacts the performance of these wells. Participants are encouraged to share their experiences and seek feedback on different methods that have been used.

Outline

Removing Liquid from Horizontal Gas Wells:  Discussion will revolve around both tried and true methods plus those under trial in primarily the horizontal shale plays.  Several lift subject matter experts are expected to be in attendance to discuss applications.  Attendees are encouraged to not only bring questions, but successful experiences along with any ideas to share with the group.
