Trueblood Resources has an extensive geologic data base gathered over its 25 year history of oil and gas operations in the Anadarko Basin. From this numerous technical studies have been completed to better understand the basin's stratigraphy and identify new oil and gas plays. From this scalable projects have been solidified and then oil and gas leases acquired on a strategic and targeted basis.
The Anadarko Basin is a rich petroleum system which has for many years has yielded an abundance of oil and gas plays. With the advent of horizontal drilling this oil and gas basin is producing many new reserves of oil and natural gas. Trueblood Resources has been an oil and gas operator in this basin for over 25 years. Our extensive local knowledge and large geologic data base has given us a competitive edge for many years.
Uintah Basin Applied Technology College's programs are driven by industry leaders. Leaders are able to come together and lead UBATC's programs and take part of the curriculum to make sure the students are ready for the workforce here in the Basin.
Work is progressing on Anadarko's Heidelberg spar at Technip's fabrication yard in Pori, Finland. Heidelberg is Anadarko's second spar in a "design one, build two" series that began with the Lucius spar, which is now on location in the Gulf of Mexico. Replicating Lucius, the Heidelberg spar will have a capacity of 80,000 barrels of oil per day. To learn more about Anadarko's use of floating spar technology, visit the Gulf of Mexico page of our website at www.anadarko.com.
For Geologists working in stacked plays, identifying the best producing zones for horizontal wells can be a daunting task. For example, over 80% of reported production for horizontal wells in the Delaware Basin is in either the Bone Springs or Wolfcamp formations. But in some areas of the Bone Springs, thickness exceeds 4500 feet and in the Wolfcamp up to 8000 feet. Drilling in the wrong zone could mean millions of dollars in production losses. In such a thick formation, how do you identify the best specific zone to drill in order to maximize well production?
There's a lot of discussion about horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing (fracking) these days, but did you know these two key technologies make up only a small fraction of the overall life cycle of a typical horizontal oil or natural gas well? Anadarko's experts in the Wattenberg field explain the full cycle from studying millions of years of subsurface rock formations, to applying for permits, preparing a pad location, drilling, completing, producing and ultimately reclaiming a well in this important producing region of northeast Colorado. Throughout the process, Anadarko's employees recognize the importance of engaging and listening to communities along the Front Range and are committed to taking appropriate actions to produce these essential resources in a manner that places safe...
Measurement Tech Shawn Sanchez’s day is filled with installing, configuring and calibrating computers to monitor the flow of oil and natural gas in the Delaware Basin of West Texas. He may not consider himself a “techie,” but we sure do. Check out his daily routine in the latest addition to our Day in the Life series.
Crews recently installed a stabilization tower at our Central Oil Stabilization Facility (COSF) in the DJ Basin. As a result of continuous learning, this sixth train will benefit from several key design improvements that are expected to enhance oil recovery rates, increase processing capacity and mitigate paraffin wax, which will improve the overall processing efficiency of the facility.
The Taranaki Basin is next on the list for the Anadarko exploration company and the Minister for Energy Simon Bridges says a lot of the protests against drilling for oil comes down to misinformation and there is in fact a lot that New Zealanders can benefit from.
In this video, I walk the user through the evaluation process for this gas prospect in the Anadarko Basin. The auction is for royalty interests in Dewey County, OK. The net monthly cash flows for this horizontal well yield interesting analysis. Since the royalty is so small, the current bids on the property are overpaying for 1 well. The price is including additional upside from new drills.
Earth from Space is presented by Kelsea Brennan-Wessels from the ESA Web-TV virtual studios. In the 229th edition, Sentinel-2 takes us over the border of the US states Utah and Colorado. See also http://www.esa.int/spaceinimages/Images/2017/05/Uintah_Basin_United_States to download the image.
Automation and technology play a key role in our job of efficiently delivering energy to power our modern lives. Learn how Automation Tech Felipe Padilla, a former member of the U.S. Army, keeps an eye on these high-tech systems in the Delaware Basin.
Anadarko's partnership with the Unitah Basin Applied Technology College in Vernal, Utah continutes to generate quality graduates with work-ready experience. Anadarko's operations in the Greater Natural Buttes area of eastern Utah are among the company's larger U.S. onshore opportunities, and this area is poised for significant future growth. A new expansion program in the area is expected to generate as many as 2,900 new jobs at peak construction, more than $10 billion in capital investment over the next decade and more than $5 billion in federal, state, local and tribal taxes and royalties. This level of activity will require continued training and development of a local workforce with the necessary skills and experience to continue safely and responsibly developing these oil and natural ...
Indicative of Anadarko's growing West Texas operations in the Permian Basin, the company recently opened a new, larger office in Kermit. Employees, contractors, neighbors and city officials were all a part of the grand opening celebration. Anadarko's operations in the Permian Basin are primarily focused on oil-prone opportunities in the Bone Spring, Avalon Shale and Wolfcamp Shale plays.
