Outcrop and subsurface cores are sampled for a variety of low-cost rock analyses, including: Chemical (XRF) and mineralogical (XRF, XRD, petrography) composition and stratification, hardness (Leeb rebound hardness tester); microfabric, porosity and permeability (SEM); organic content (TOC, RockEval, biomarkers); fractures/folds (visual observations); 2D and 3D seismic volumes, and biostratigraphy (if biota are present) This data set can then be combined to determine depositional environment, measure long-/short-distance lateral continuity of strata away from the wellbore, determine fracturability (brittle vs. ductile rock), categorize reservoir quality (porosity and permeability), and predict the potential for fractures to hold open or to close on proppant. These features provide important screening criteria for geoscientists and decision-makers. An example of the analysis, utility and application of these techniques is provided of the Woodford Formation, which is currently the 3rd most active shale play in the U.S.
Dr. Roger M. Slatt is currently the Gungoll Family Chair Professor of Petroleum Geology and Geophysics at the University of Oklahoma. He was Director of the School of Geology and Geophysics and Eberly Family Chair Professor at University of Oklahoma from 2000-2006. He formerly was Head of the Department of Geology and Geological Engineering at Colorado School of Mines (1992-2000) and Director of the Rocky Mountain Region Petroleum Technology Transfer Council (1995-2000). He earned his Ph.D. in 1970 from the University of Alaska. He has taught geology at Memorial University of Newfoundland, Arizona State University and Colorado School of Mines and worked in the petroleum industry for Cities Service Research, ARCO Research, and ARCO International Oil and Gas Co. He has written more than 150 articles and presentations and authored, co-authored, or edited 6 books on petroleum geology, reservoir geology, seismic and sequence stratigraphy, shallow marine and turbidite depositional systems, geology of shale, glacial and Pleistocene-Quaternary geology, and geochemical exploration. He has organized technical conferences for AAPG. He is recipient of the AAPG Distinguished Service Award, AAPG Distinguished Educator and Honorary Member, SEG Distinguished Service Award, SPE Esso Australia Distinguished Lecturer, and both AAPG and SPE Distinguished Lecturer. He has graduated more than 100 graduate students during his academic career at OU.
