Introduction to Hydrocarbon and Fluid Analysis
- Seminar and Lab Tour -

September 26th, 8:30am - 4:30pm


Increasing production while controlling OPEX and CAPEX  is one of the primary goals of an integrated field development team.

Successfully understanding and managing fluids and produced hydrocarbons is the most effective method field development teams can incorporate.  In this seminar, Stratum Reservoir will explain a proposed workflow to understand produced fluids and mitigate common production concerns in conventional and unconventional assets. We will discuss sample requirements for each proposed test with an emphasis on current technologies.

*Note that this class will include a lab tour; PROPER CLOTHING REQUIRED (including steel-toed shoes & long pants).
