Monthly Chapter Meeting:
GREAT NEWS!! The Dallas Chapter will continue to meet in the DeGolyer & MacNaughton sponsored business conference room located in the Providence Towers building at 5001 Spring Valley Road in North Dallas. Located north of LBJ (I-635), south of Belt Line Road, and on the west side of the North Dallas Tollway, this building has the large open archway in its middle and has a red granite facade. The meeting room is located on the first floor of the East Tower. Parking is underground ($1) and can be accessed from either Spring Valley Road or from the southbound service road of the tollway.
Please RSVP early in order that enough food is ordered and that the chapter does not order too much!!
Meetings start at 11:30 for a social gathering, followed by a catered buffet at noon (cost $20, students $10).
Please contact Violeta Lujan (mailto:email@example.com?subject=RSVP) to receive future meeting notifications by email and for making luncheon reservations (RSVP).
Next meeting - 21 September 2017 ( 3nd Thursday )
Remaining Oil Saturation with Cased Hole Pulse Neutron Log in CO2 EOR Fields
“Z” Liu, P.E.
There are about 400 billion barrels of estimated remaining
oil in place. However, quantifying remaining
oil saturation has always been a critical but challenging
task for petrophysicists and reservoir engineers
due to the geology, and additional complexity introduced by
field history. CO2 flood is a proven EOR
method to recover some of the remaining oil in place, while
the presence of CO2 poses additional
petrophysical challenges. Conventional open hole logging and
coring methods remain useful, but are
limited by tool physics, wellbore, fluids, and cost. New
cased hole pulse neutron logging tool and
interpretation technologies offers some promise to overcome
these limitation and measure remaining
oil and gas saturation in CO2 flood fields.
We will discuss the technology followed by its application in
flood fields and other mature fields.
Zhipeng “Z” Liu, P.E. is Sr. Petrophysicist/Reservoir Engineer Kinder Morgan in Houston. He
also serves as 2017 President-Elect for SPWLA. He is a licensed Professional Petroleum
Engineer in Texas. Previously, he worked for Schlumberger, BP, and Pathfinder. He
specialized in US onshore conventional, unconventional and EOR reservoirs. He earned his
first M.S. degree in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin, second M.S. degree in
Petroleum Geology from the University of Houston. He is a CFA Level III candidate. He has published
more than a dozen technical papers and has been granted 3 US patents.
