Session 4: Panel Discussion – Defining Value
5:05 5:30 Topics to Cover: Theoretically speaking, what kind of shale rock is suitable for EOR? What worked in the past, where, why? If it failed, what was the main reason? What data and tools are required for success? Which Permian Basin formation to focus efforts on? Midland or Delaware? Why? How to make Unconventional EOR economic? Should industry collaborate?
