Wondering how to make your unconventional well competitive? Come join us at our March meeting when DL Dr. Leen Weijers will present "Making Unconventionals Competitive – Minimizing the Cost per Barrel Oil".In this presentation Dr. Weijers will show how cost of drilling and completion has been cut in about half for shale wells over the last decade through efficiency gains and innovations in workflow. He will also look at how well production has roughly doubled through a focus to increase both the extent and intensity of the created hydraulic fracture system.

The key take-away from this presentation is that our industry is capable of wide-ranging and rapid innovation when free market forces are unleashed to produce the cheapest barrel possible.


Dr. Leen Weijers is VP of Engineering at Liberty Oilfield Services and served as its Business Manager at Liberty’s founding. Leen worked at Pinnacle Technologies from 1995 to 2011, where he oversaw development of a commercial fracture growth simulator, FracproPT. Leen has authored dozens of publications and contributed a chapter to the recent SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Monograph. Leen completed his doctoral research at the Faculty of Mining and Petroleum Engineering at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands.
