SPE DL Webinar – “Reservoir Engineering While Drilling” in Horizontal Wells – Shahid Azizul Haq
14 Jul 2020, from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Good day dear SPE Romanian Section members and beyond,
Another Distinguished Lecturer event is behind us. A great event indeed.
As everyone out there, we SPE Romanian Section, adapted and quickly used the opportunity to have our DL guest present to us in a virtual manner. Mr.Shahid Haq took us on a brilliant technical journey discussing reservoir engineering in applicable ways that some of us have not thought about before.
From reservoir mapping to the physics of fluids, from real time productivity steering to interdisciplinary communication in projects, the audience had the opportunity to indulge and interact with our presenter, who was by far one of the most enthusiastic and approachable presenters we ever had.
Among the 48 attendees, we had engineers from different technical disciplines and an audience willing to learn and improve their knowledge.
Mr.Shahid Haq tunned in from Houston to share his knowledge and experience about a topic that is extremely applicable to all segments of the oil and gas industry. Over the past forty years, steering a horizontal well in conventional reservoirs has evolved from geometric to geological to structural and now productivity steering. This talk is aimed to summarize the evolution of wellbore steering, the impact of logging-while-drilling on well and reservoir performance, and the real-time application of reservoir engineering fundamentals while drilling these horizontal wells.
The talk also addressed the following questions:
- What is the deliverability (PI, Q) of the horizontal drilled interval?
- What is the impact of changing wellbore trajectory while drilling (sensitivity analysis) on PI?
- How can we steer a horizontal well to maximize productivity and/or recovery and/or minimize flow assurance issues?
We would like to thank Mr.Shahid Azizul Haq for his commitment to a better future of our industry and for his readiness to support SPE Romanian Section in sharing knowledge!
Stay tuned, as there is much more to come in the upcoming months and we look forward to the involvement of our current members and our members to be!
Shahid Azizul Haq is Reservoir Engineering Advisor in Schlumberger. He is subject matter expert on formation testing (FT), production logging (PL) and pressure transient analysis (PTA). He has been with Schlumberger for more than 30 years and most of his firsthand experience of FT/PL/PTA stem from working in Middle East (Syria, UAE, Saudi Arabia & Qatar), an environment rich in horizontal wells. For the past 10 years, Shahid is working as the Global Reservoir Domain Head for Schlumberger Drilling & Measurements where his primary role is to manage the development of new formation testing and reservoir engineering techniques/workflows/answer products for the "while drilling" environment. He has pioneered the workflow of Real Time Productivity Steering also known as RTPS, a key enabler for the real-time application of reservoir engineering while drilling horizontal wells. Shahid has co-authored 16 papers (out of his 26 papers) focused on horizontal wells either regarding formation testing or production logging or productivity steering. He holds BS and MS degrees in petroleum engineering. Shahid has been a member of various SPE, SPWLA and IPTC program committees as well as the Editorial Review Committee for SPE Reservoir Evaluation & Engineering. Shahid received 2017 SPE Regional Service Award for Gulf Coast North America Region.
