The STACK Play Workshop

September 6, 2018

The STACK Play Workshop - AIPG Endorsed (11 PDHs or 1.1 CEUs)

Purpose and Scope


The STACK (Sooner Trend Anadarko Canadian Kingfisher) Play was discovered in 2011. The play has quickly become one of the hottest resource plays in North America. Despite extensive drilling activity in this play, our understanding of the petroleum geology of the play is limited. Therefore, the main objective of this workshop is to learn from researchers and operators in the STACK Play, with an emphasis on the Meramec Lime and Woodford Shale. Presentations will focus on the depositional system, stratigraphy (biostratigraphy and chemostratigraphy), geochemistry, petrophysics, facies analysis, and fracture characterization that are beneficial for a better understanding of the play and commercial production of hydrocarbons from these low porosity and low permeability reservoirs.
