Yiwen Chu Yale University "Hybrid Quantum Systems with Bulk Acoustic Wave Resonators" Abstract:  The ability to engineer and manipulate different varieties of quantum mechanical objects allows us to take advantage of their unique properties and create useful hybrid technologies. Thus far, complex quantum states and exquisite quantum control have been demonstrated in systems ranging from trapped ions and solid state qubits to superconducting microwave resonators. Recently, there have been many efforts to extend these demonstrations to the motion of complex,…

Dr. Reinaldo Michelena Geophysical Technology Advisor, iReservoir Marquez Hall room 108 Flow simulation is the ultimate calibration tool for the concepts incorporated into geological models of conventional and unconventional reservoirs. It takes into account all the complex interactions between matrix, fractures, and fluid behavior that determine the nature of the production decay. Seismic derived information can help constrain critical parameters in flow simulation models such as porosity and permeability of matrix and natural fractures. In this talk, I present a…

Rick Allen Director, Consulting Services S&P Global Platts Relatively recent shale oil and gas production techniques have been wildly successful, so much so that new gas supplies, whether from oil, liquids-rich or dry gas plays, have eclipsed U. S. demand. North American gas producers are faced with maturing markets, low costs of production, and a “just in time” environment, where supply can be ramped-up relatively quickly upon strengthening price signals. Export market development will be mandatory for significant ongoing growth…

Dr. Yilin Fan University of Tulsa Accumulation of oil and/or water at the bottom of an upward inclined pipe is known to be the source of many industrial problems, such as corrosion and terrain slugging.  After the onset of liquid accumulation, liquid holdup is observed to increase significantly, which in turn steeply increases the pressure loss.  Due to the intermittent nature of the two-phase flow after liquid loading, the oscillations of pressure gradient and liquid production could also cause fatigue…

SPE Distinguished Lecturer 2017-2018 Will Fleckenstein Adjunct Professor, CSM The prevention of contamination of fresh water aquifers has been a prime concern in drilling operations since the inception of drilling in China for salt 5,000 years ago. Media reports and films such as “Gasland” have left the impression that shale development is widely polluting our fresh water aquifers and air. Surface casing has long been the primary barrier to prevent contamination through wellbores, with hollowed logs first used as surface…

February 26, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Marquez Hall, 1600 Arapahoe St.
Golden, CO 80401 United States

Yilin Fan Research Associate, University of Tulsa Multiphase flow in pipes occurs in the petroleum industry during the production and transportation of oil and gas. Due to the significantly different fluid properties such as density and viscosity, the multiphase flow behavior is much more complicated than the single-phase flow. The major difference is the slippage between phases, resulting in various flow patterns and dramatic different flow-pattern dependent pressure losses. Accurate prediction of multiphase flow is of great importance in terms…

Ramin Dabirian Research Associate, University of Tulsa Transport of sand in multiphase pipelines has become more common in the Petroleum Industry, especially in fields with relatively low formation strength. When transported improperly, sand may deposit forming beds along the pipe. Sand deposition can cause excessive pressure losses, and increased risk of corrosion and equipment failure. Unnecessarily high velocities to transport the sand will result in possible erosion in the pipelines. In order to avoid operational problems and maximize reservoir production,…

Though far less celebrated than their more glamorous cousins the mustangs, burros (Equus asinus) have played an important role in the settlement of the American West. They enabled humans to access mineral deposits in the region’s most remote places. When improved technology and transportation rendered the burros’ services increasingly superfluous, they were cast off like outdated technology. The animals thrived in the wild, and their population soared. As a result, they were routinely hunted for sport until 1971, when Congress…

Jon A. Leydens and Juan C. Lucena Present: Catalysts and Eureka Moments: Origins and Functions of Engineering Justice: Transforming Engineering Education and Practice On the surface, engineering and social justice may seem like odd bedfellows. Engineering professionals and educators recognize the social relevance of engineering, including its capacity to positive shape society and communities. Yet many stop short of engaging social justice. Unlike the medical and legal professions, which have had longer histories with social justice praxis, social justice in…

Presented by Dr. Stefan Miska Co-authored by Lilly Duarte Oklahoma is at the top of the list for having the most significant hazards from induced seismicity in Central Eastern United States (CEUS). However, this phenomena is relatively recent starting around 2009. Many people, including myself, associate this sudden increase in seismicity with oilfield operations. USGS seismologist Dr. Susan Hough stated: “In Oklahoma, seismicity rates since 2009 far surpass previously observed rates at any time during the 20th century… Deep injection…

Dr. Russell Johns Penn State University, Visiting Scholar at Colorado School of Mines Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) by solvent injection offers significant potential to increase recovery from shale oil reservoirs, which are typically between 3 and 7% OOIP. The rather sparse literature on this topic typically models these tight reservoirs based on conventional reservoir processes and mechanisms, such as by convective transport using Darcy’s law, even though there is little physical justification for this treatment. This talk will discuss a…

Cheng Chen, Ph.D. Pore-scale Imaging/Modeling and the Application in the Study of Proppant Compaction and Embedment Understanding of proppant transport and deposition patterns in a hydraulic fracture is critical for effective and economical production of hydrocarbons. In this research, a numerical modeling approach, combining the discrete element method (DEM) with single-/multiphase lattice Boltzmann (LB) simulation, was adopted to advance the understanding of the interaction between proppant compaction, embedment, and single-/multiphase flows in a hydraulic fracture. DEM was used to simulate…

November 2, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Golden, CO 80401 United States

Russell Johns Abstract: Current compositional simulators include compositional equation-of-state fluid models, but do not account for compositional effects on relative permeability, capillary pressure, and grid-block flux calculations.  Relative permeability, for example, is still based on “old thinking” related to labeling of phases as “oil, gas, and water.”  Labeling causes significant discontinuities that can result in inaccuracies and instability in simulations of compositional processes, such as those for enhanced oil recovery (EOR).   This presentation will show you the issues and…

Francisco Alhanati from CFER Unconventional well applications - Challenges for artificial lift Unconventional well applications present several challenges for artificial lift.  The rapid production decline usually makes it necessary for operators to change the lift system after certain time, and minimizing the costs associated with these changes is paramount.  The deep, long horizontal well configuration also creates additional difficulties.  Landing a downhole pump deep in the well, to achieve higher drawdowns, may be associated with higher failure rates, due to…
