Terry Engelder

Professor Geosciences

Appalachian Black Shale Group

Terry Engelder, a leading authority on the recent Marcellus gas shale play, holds degrees from Penn State B.S. (’68), Yale M.S. (’72) and Texas A&M, Ph.D. (‘73).  He is currently a Professor of Geosciences at Penn State and has previously served on the staffs of the US Geological Survey, Texaco, and Columbia University.  Short-term academic appointments include those of Visiting Professor at Graz University in Austria and Visiting Professor at the University of Perugia in Italy.  Other academic distinctions include a Fulbright Senior Fellowship in Australia, Penn State’s Wilson Distinguished Teaching Award, membership in a US earth science delegation to visit the Soviet Union immediately following Nixon-Brezhnev dêtente, and the singular honor of helping Walter Alvarez collect the samples that led to the famous theory for dinosaur extinction by large meteorite impact.  He has written 150 research papers, many focused on Appalachia, and a book, the research monograph "Stress Regimes in the Lithosphere". In the international arena, he has worked on exploration and production problems with companies including Saudi Aramco, Royal Dutch Shell, Total, Agip, and Petrobras.  In 2011 he was named to the Foreign Policy Magazine’s list of Top 100 Global Thinkers.

NEXT EVENT IN THE SERIES

BCG13 Logo

In order to maximize production, it is vital for Bakken producers to….

… understand the Bakken resource as a collation of play types, including the Sanish, Elm Coulee, Nesson Anticline, Parshall, Three Forks and Saskatchewan.

To overlook the geological differentials between one field type and another is to ignore the fundamentals of successful well production. Bakken Tight Oil Congress 2012 will bring together expert speakers to analyze multiple play types within the Bakken to demonstrate the importance of tailored completions in enhancing well performance.

Bakken Tight Oil Congress 2012 is the only event designed specifically to enhance learning on integrating geological and completions disciplines to determine the most effective technical applications for each play type within the Bakken:

PLAY TYPES: Understanding the Bakken as a geologically heterogeneous resource play with multiple play types including Parshall, Sanish, Three Forks, Rough Rider, Scallion and Saskatchewan

INTEGRATING GEOLOGY WITH COMPLETIONS : Designing completions relative to field-specific reservoir characteristics to optimize production

SWEET SPOT IDENTIFICATION: Realizing common geological and reservoir characteristics of hot spots in the Bakken to identify highly productive new targets

PRODUCTION PERFORMANCE: Correlating production performance to completions variables and geological parameters to distinguish the effects of good geology from good completions

EXTENT OF THE BAKKEN: Analyzing the migration of oil and gas beyond the Bakken as it is currently defined to de-lineate new edges of the play and new opportunities
