Distinguished Seminar Series: Challenges of Unconventional Infill Development

February 28 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Marquez Hall, 1600 Arapahoe St.
Golden, CO 80401 United States

Juan David Estrade Benavides, Schlumberger OneStim Infill development is changing the landscape of North American shales as operators try to avoid bypassing pay in their operating acreage. Although capitalizing on increased drilling and completion efficiencies can reduce development costs, tighter well spacings may limit well performance. Operators that do not carefully plan and design their developments often find they must make larger investments in infill wells to achieve production comparable to that of legacy wells. Simultaneously, the legacy wells can…

PE Distinguished Seminar: Driving Research By Creatively Asking Questions, Roel Snieder

April 10 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
CO United States + Google Map

Roel Snieder, W.M. Keck Professor of Professional Development Education, Colorado School of Mines Abstract: Questions are the prime driver of research because they are invitations to answers. Knowing the main questions to be addressed for a research project is usually not enough because the main question often is too broad to lead to specific actions. In this seminar we discuss the importance of questions in research, different ways to generate research questions, and ways to order questions so that they naturally…
