Topic: “The South Texas Eagle Ford Play: A Technology-led Transformation”.
The speech will cover challenges operators are facing on pad drilling and development in the Eagle Ford with the modern day oil and gas lease. A specific example is the lease obligation to continue operations / productions on a proration unit, but the wells within the proration unit must be shut-in due to fracing operations on an adjacent unit or lease. Many OGLs are taken with 90 day cessation of production language and the landman needs to be aware of the feasibility of actually satisfying this obligation with the time it takes to drill & complete multiple horizontal wells.
Mr. Harvey, will also be discussing the effects of Eagle Ford development on the local and state economies.
