Carbon Storage in the Mt. Simon: Field Examples of Regional DeploymentIncludes Credits Includes a Live Event on 09/06/2019 at 9:30 AM (EDT)
The development of commercial-scale projects has been a strategic process across multiple phases leading to a succession of projects of increasing scale in the Central United States. Four major carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects in Decatur, Illinois and Terra Haute, Indiana exemplify the strategic pathway defined more than a decade ago by the U.S. Department of Energy – National Technology Laboratory (US DOE).
Oil and Gas in the Era of DecarbonizationIncludes Credits Includes a Live Event on 10/10/2019 at 11:30 AM (EDT)
As global efforts to minimize greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants associated fossil fuel use, it is important to consider new opportunities for the oil and gas industry and its potential role in decarbonization.

Commercial vs EconomicContains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
With the 2018 update to PRMS, the evolution of this important document continues with clarifications of existing terms and concepts as well as introductions of new terms. One constant has been the requirement of “commerciality” as an element of reserves. To ensure PRMS users distinguish “commercial” from “economic”, this online training course explains both terms. Also, related terms, like “economic limit”, are explained along with some FAQs on economic topics.
Estimated Ultimate Recovery vs Technically Recoverable ResourcesContains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits
A new term, Total Resource Recovery (TRR), is introduced in 2018 PRMS to complement another previously used resource potential related term, Estimated Ultimate Recovery (EUR). The [presentation/talk/slide show] defines both terms and a new related term, Technical Forecast, to explain their meaning, use and the differences between these terms.
Module 3: Formation Mechanical Properties and Geometry EffectsContains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits
The focus of this webinar will be on defining the issues and the critical role that formation mechanical properties and strength and structural geometry have on the geomechanics of oilfield applications.
Introduction to Petroleum Geomechanics: A Three Part SeriesContains 3 Product(s)
This three-part webinar series is focused on introducing the basics of geomechanics and geomechanics services to a wide audience - from service approvers (management), to engineers and scientists who might be called upon to support and evaluate the value of geomechanics efforts but who do not have specific training in geomechanics. While presented as a three-part series, the webinars are laid out in a fashion from more general to more technical.
Module 2: Introduction to Earth StressesContains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits
The focus of this second webinar in the series will be on defining the issues and the critical role that formation stress, strain (deformation), and formation pressure have on the geomechanics of oilfield applications.
