SPEAKER: Ahmed Attia, North American Reservoir Manager for Ziebel
ABSTRACT: Distributed Fiber Optics (DFO) has been at the forefront for unconventional well diagnostics. The core of this technology targets an in-depth understanding of completion optimization and flow profiling through cluster efficiency and stage spacing. The focus will be on a case study from a US unconventional well, where a 0.6” OD, 22,000-foot-long carbon fiber rod was deployed to acquire DAS and DTS for post-frac flow evaluation. The case study will explain how DFO measurement taken during a post-frac sensing operation, where the combination of distributed acoustic and distributed temperature measurements, are used to provide a clear and thorough understanding on completion analysis. Many different completion strategies are used to obtain the best production; however, with complex heterogenic rock, it is difficult to grasp a full understanding on completion design effectiveness. Validating completion designs with a strong data set is the best method for understanding how effective completion changes were. This presentation will showcase a data set that will identify how effective DFO can be in demonstrating cluster efficiency and production strength from each stage. Using the conveyed DFO data set, it was abundantly clear which completion design outperformed the others.
BIOGRAPHY: Ahmed Attia is the North American Reservoir Manager for Ziebel – US. Ahmed has 10 years of experience in the oil industry. Prior to joining Ziebel, he held several positions at Schlumberger, and has an in-depth understanding on different unconventional wellbore behaviors and completion designs. Ahmed graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Petroleum Engineering at Texas A&M University.
The Canadian Well Logging Society (CWLS) announces yearly awards for engineering and earth sciences undergraduate and graduate students in Canada. The purpose of these awards is to raise interest and awareness of careers in Petrophysics and Formation Evaluation. Formation Evaluation and Petrophysics are the studies of rocks and their fluid properties as they pertain to the oil and gas industry.
This year the The Winston Karel CWLS Student Award will be funded by Lois Decker, wife of Winston Karel. Winston Karel was a long time CWLS member and friend to the community who passed away on July 1st, 2015.
Best Student Thesis wins $1000
Best Student Abstract wins $500
Submissions should critically examine some aspects of well logging, formation evaluation or petrophysics and should be submitted to the CWLS in their final year of study. The final thesis can be submitted at any time in the year of graduation. Submission deadline is October 31, 2018 and the CWLS will select award winners by November 15th of this year.
The winners will be invited to the December luncheon to receive the awards and to make a presentation at a CWLS lunch meeting in Calgary later in the year.
Student Award Eligibility Criteria: Candidates must be registered full-time at a Canadian university. A student’s financial need will be considered.
Student Award Application Procedure:
Completed application forms must be received before October 31, 2018. Application forms can be downloaded below:
