Workshop Program

We asked experts from across the United States to share their findings from their local shale plays to help us understand the Permian Basin better.

The Workshop Organizing Committee is proud to announce the following experts that will present their knowledge on topics related to the latest science and technology of Unconventional EOR. More experts are expected to confirm soon. The final speaker lineup will be available soon.


Gordon Pospisil, Liberty Resources, LLC
Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) The Next Game Changer for Tight Oil Plays


  • Lab to Field: Core, Petrophysics, and Lessons Learned from Fellow Plays
  • Reservoir – Gas Injection and Cycling, Natural Fractures-related Production Issues
  • Seismic Reservoir Characterization – Physical Properties, Anisotropy, Fracturing, 4D
  • Operations – Completions Trials, Pressure Monitoring, RT Stimulation Monitoring, Avoiding Casing Deformation
  • Fluids – Surfactants, Nanosurfactants, and Biochemicals
  • Panel Discussion – What do we know? Is Permian Ready?
