The results from recent development wells in the horizontal resource plays has demonstrated the importance of understanding well spacing. Based on these results, oil and gas companies are dedicating significant technical time to understand their acreage, and how to best optimize the value of the acreage based on certain spacing assumptions. For the petroleum evaluation engineer, having a firm grasp on the demonstrated spacing and results, both inter-reservoir and between reservoirs, is key to appropriately assigning proved, probable, and possible reserves. We will present observations from well spacing tests in various plays, and discuss the principles to consider when assigning reserves when married with these companies' development plans.

Speaker Bio.:

Prior to NSAI, Neil was a Senior Reservoir Engineer with ExxonMobil Corporation, where he worked primarily in the Gulf of Mexico. Since joining NSAI he has been involved in hundreds of domestic projects. Neil’s extensive experience has given him an invaluable understanding of the important relationship that exists between the reserves evaluation consultant and the petroleum and financial industries. His areas of specific expertise include unconventional resources property evaluation (primarily in the Permian Basin and Eagle Ford Shale), probabilistic analysis of exploration prospects and new discoveries, and the application/ interpretation of industry reserves definitions and guidelines.
