8 PDHs Earned by Completing this Roundtable / Workshop
Where do we go next? The history of the oil and gas industry is one
replete with explorers who found
new reserves in new areas or
found ways to economically extract known reserves
areas. They used their training or gut feelings, often both, and what ever
latest and greatest technology and processes available. As has been
"The more things change, the more they stay the same".
We began the work on this meeting with a single question to many in the
industry -- "How would you define a Frontier Play?" What we
discovered is that there is a wide difference of opinion.
Wildcat -- something drilled speculatively without proven resource
Old Reservoirs utilizing new technology
Areas in the past that have been inaccessible for political, physical, or operational reasons.
Absence of Data/Untouched by the Drill Bit
(These were the 4 leading answers out of about 35 different definitions)
Join us September 14th, 2011 at the Ellison Miles Geotechnology Institute,
Brookhaven College to explore with your peers the "Frontiers" &
what it takes to turn them into "Emerging Plays".
