NPGS Monthly Meeting—Thursday, October 3

Nevada Petroleum and Geothermal Society Monthly Dinner Meeting
Title: The Increasing Value of Geothermal in the West, Get Your Pickaxes Ready
Speaker: Paul Thomsen, Ormat Technologies
Abstract: I will discuss the economic benefits and value of geothermal compared to other renewable resources using actual market data, as well as forecasts for the coming 10-20 years. I will briefly explain how geothermal accrues greater economic benefits than solar PV in the California ISO (CAISO) wholesale energy market and in meeting resource adequacy (RA) requirements. For these reasons and others, significant quantities (GW) of new geothermal are being selected through capacity expansion modeling in California’s integrated resource planning (IRP) proceedings. This will require accelerated geothermal expansion across the Western U.S.

Bio: Paul Thomsen is the Vice President of Business Development for Ormat Technologies. Upon assuming this role in November 2018, he has taken responsibility for expanding Ormat’s existing portfolio of geothermal, solar, and recovered energy generation projects.

Thomsen brings expertise in both the public and private energy sector, previously serving as Commissioner and Chairman of the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada, Director of the Nevada Governor’s Office of Energy, and Director of Policy and Business Development for Ormat. He also worked for the law firm of Lionel Sawyer and Collins and United States Senators Harry Reid and Richard Bryan. He has advocated for meaningful energy policy as President of the Board of Directors of the Geothermal Energy Association and Chairman of the United States Clean Heat and Power Association.

Thomsen earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and Master’s Degree in Public Administration from the University of Nevada, Reno.

GSA Webinar—Wednesday, Sept 18

Geoscience Careers in the Petroleum Industry

A message from Leila M. Gonzales, Ph.D., American Geosciences Institute: “We are sending this email as a courtesy to the geoscience community. The Geological Society of America (GSA) will be hosting a free webinar entitled “Geoscience Careers in the Petroleum Industry” on Wednesday, 18 September 2019, at 11:00 a.m. MDT.

To register for this free event, please visit:  https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/3422063214384043523

This two-part presentation will provide a high-level review of what geoscientists do and information about starting a career in the petroleum industry. In part one, Fred will give a short bio so you know his experience and then talk about the petroleum industry, a major employer of geoscientists. He will introduce you to the life cycle on an asset (field) and then focus on petroleum exploration. Fred will use a series of questions to illustrate the types of challenges a geoscientist faces each day. In part two, Maryevalyn will cover what to expect when starting a career in the Oil & Gas industry, as well as how to transition from being a full-time student to an early career professional. She will discuss the geoscience technician hiring process at ExxonMobil and key skills, experiences, and characteristics recruiters search for in geology majors. Maryevalyn will also describe her personal experience with the company and what she loves most about her career.”

Speakers:
Fred W. Schroeder, Ph.D., Consultant, Seismic Interpretation Training & Application
Maryevalyn Wren, Geoscience Technician, ExxonMobil

Sponsors: AAPG, SEG, AGI, AGU, GSA Energy Geology Division

We encourage you distribute this email and/or the attached webinar announcement to anyone who may be interested.

Speaker:  Rod Prosceno, Petroleum Engineer and Managing Member for Grant Canyon Oil & Gas, LLC
Topic: Nevada – EOR Projects – Grant Canyon and Blackburn Fields

Abstract: Enhanced Oil Recovery projects have been initiated in two separate Nevada producing oil fields in 2006-2008 and currently continue.  The Grant Canyon and Blackburn fields have commenced High Pressure Air Injection (HPAI) for reservoir management of Gravity Stable Immiscible Drainage (GSID).  The process involves a longer and slower steady growth of liberated oil which can be harvested by optimizing well completions.  The HPAI creates primarily an immiscible gas which gently restores reservoir pressure as incremental oil drains to producers which would not be recovered under primary conventional operations. Both projects target Devonian age reservoirs with bottom water drive systems.  A summary of contrasting implementation and challenges for each field will be reviewed along with a geologic overview on massive carbonates.

Eugene Wadleigh has over 30 years of experience in gas injection and water management systems in oil and gas fields.  He has worked on and been an advisor on some of the largest gas processing fields in both the United States and worldwide.

Rod Prosceno has 25 years of experience in oil and gas operations and water management processes.  He has worked on varying types of reservoirs worldwide and employed various techniques of operational management.
