CONTINUING EDUCATION | Introduction to Petroleum Engineering
This course builds on content of a new text, Introduction to Petroleum Engineering, co-authored by Dr. Christiansen and Dr. John R. Fanchi and published by Wiley in 2016. The intent of the text and the course is to introduce engineers and non-engineers to tools and methods used by petroleum engineers to produce oil and gas resources. Going beyond verbal descriptions, participants will work with important concepts and relationships at an introductory level. Participants will receive copies of the text.
Instructor: Richard L. Christiansen, Ph.D., Adjunct Professor, University of Utah
Dates: Wednesday - Thursday, April 26-27, 2017, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Location: Brown Palace Hotel and Spa, 321 Seventeenth Street, Denver, CO 80202, (303) 297-3111
1.6 CEUs (Continuing Education Units) will be awarded by SPE-Americas Office for this 2-day course.
Registration Deadline: Friday, April 7th, 2017
- Basics: fluid and rock properties, oil and gas in place; elements of geology
- Drilling: vertical, directional, horizontal, and off-shore
- Well logging
- Surface facilities from well-head to refinery
- Well testing

COMPLETIONS STUDY GROUP | Jeff Hebert, Carbo Ceramics

Speaker: Jeff Hebert, Carbo Ceramics
Production Assurance involves the economical flow of hydrocarbons from reservoir to the point of sale. This requires effectively preventing / handling solid deposits which can be both organic and inorganic in nature. These deposits can cause catastrophic blockage in pipelines, proppant packs and wellbores. Financial loss from production interruption or asset damage can be astronomical and the industry spends hundreds of millions of dollars a year to remediate. To prevent organic/ inorganic deposits and lost production time inhibitor chemicals are delivered downhole via tubulars and as an additive to fracturing fluids. A new delivery system is an infused and encapsulated porous ceramic proppant. The chemical is infused into proppant and pumped as a blend in normal proppant. Typical treatments are designed to last for years of production. This treatment lifetime, however, can be altered to accommodate for longer or shorter periods of time. The delivery system allows inhibitor chemicals to be released at a slow rate when the proppant comes in contact with production and results in a highly efficient, reservoir based chemical delivery system. This presentation will discuss the mechanisms by which damage can impede the production of hydrocarbons and how the use of proppants to remediate this damage can lower lease operating expenses and enhance production. It will also outline case studies where this technology has been implicated.
Jeff Hebert is the Business Manager for the Production Assurance division of Carbo Ceramics. He has 17+ years’ experience in drilling, completions and production engineering. He was previously a managing partner in Force Industries, a specialty chemical company focused on remediating production damage. Before joining Force he was the Operations Manager for the Pressure Pumping Services Division of Superior Energy Services. Prior to Superior Jeff was a technical advisor to Weatherford’s fracturing group and started his career with Schlumberger working in cementing, coiled tubing and fracturing divisions. He holds B.S. degrees in Biology, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering from the University of SW Louisiana.
