Data for over 170,000 Analyzed Drill Stem Tests in the Continental U.S. [email protected] Historical DST Coverage by State Historical drill stem test data has not, for the most part, been available in the United States, as no regulatory authority existed historically to collect this important information. AIFE has invested over $1.0 million to assimilate the raw data file, and over $4.0 million to analyze and computerize this information. [email protected] AIFE Data Sources AIFEs drill stem test (DST) database contains over 170,000 analyzed tests for the United States covering the period 1948 to present. Each analysis is derived from the original drill stem test report, not transcribed from scout or field data. The DST data includes permeability, quality codes, drill collar and drill pipe data, incremental detail, HORNER extrapolated pressures and slopes, PMAX, Detailed blow descriptions, Formation DAMAGE and recoveries. The file was constructed over a 20 year period from the original DST reports at a cost exceeding $5.0 million. Much of this investment was made in the 1980s and would be considerably more expensive to recreate today. The file represents the largest single collection of drill stem test reports available and

surpasses any individual state record compilations. [email protected] AIFE Data Sources The original sources (many of which have sadly been destroyed) for the data file include: The internal records of Amoco Production Co., Arco and the numerous companies they had each acquired over the years. Tests from individual testing companies (including Baker). Petroleum Research Corporation who collected data from 1948 to 1983 (57,000 tests). State records where available. New and old tests in Wyoming on which AIFE was able to locate additional records will be added this year, followed by Montana & North Dakota in 2015. It is arguably the only comprehensive database of historical DST information available in the United States. [email protected] Drill Stem Testing Drill Stem Testing is a basic oilfield evaluation tool. DSTs are essential in determining the disposition of current wells and providing reservoir data which can aid in predicting productivity and appropriate well completion techniques. [email protected] DST Testing The primary objective of Drill Stem Testing is to determine the type and rate of production, formation

characteristics and conditions. Detailed interpretative analyses of drill stem tests provides vital information such as reservoir characteristics, permeability, virgin reservoir pressures and temperatures, reservoir drawdown and hydrocarbon recoveries. The incorporation of such data into an exploration program proves to be invaluable and essential for an overall perception of fluid migration. [email protected] DST Data To the explorationist, evaluation of individual DSTs is important to determine if potential zones were fully evaluated or if by-passed hydrocarbons are present. Virgin reservoir pressures as determined by DSTs can be compared to post- simulation results to determine stimulation effectiveness. The application of DSTs in petroleum hydrodynamics is invaluable in delineating reservoir continuity, fluid gradient analysis, fluid migration pathways and pressure regime interpretation. Applications of DSTs encompasses direct involvement in exploration, exploitation, reservoir engineering, hydrodynamics and drilling analysis. [email protected]

DST Data The best type of DST data available is data taken directly from the original DST report, not transcribed or copied from field reports. Transcribed or field data is often unreliable at best. To have reliable DST data the original DST report should be obtained, the test reviewed for mechanical success and incremental detail on the shut-ins obtained to complete Horner extrapolation(s). This process is lengthy and requires a degree of skill in DST analysis to identify problems which if not recognized can lead to serious errors. [email protected] AIFE Analysis Overview AIFE provides the petroleum industry with over 170,000 DST reports in the United States, and has analyzed over 430,000 DSTs worldwide. Our team of professional analysts transform the raw data into high-grade form by calling upon their experience analyzing tens of thousands of tests. Pressure curves often need to be digitized so that incremental detail is available for performing various reservoir calculations which are a part of the highgrade data set. The DSTs are also coded according to unique time tested quality criteria making it possible to conclude facts about test reliability, reservoir permeability and damage etc., simply by glancing at our reports. [email protected]

AIFE Quality Coding System AIFE's expert personnel have re-evaluated each drill stem test from the source documents according to criteria identified over forty years of experience, providing a newly comprehensive and reliable base for decision making. The following is a brief look at the methods by which this re-evaluation was accomplished. A fully detailed study of how these standards were arrived at is available upon request. These Quality Codes grade drill stem tests according to the following signatures: [email protected] AIFE Quality Codes [email protected] AIFE Quality Codes A Quality Test

Front page only, misrun [email protected] AIFE Permeability Ratings From a drill stem test, the average effective permeability can be calculated to reservoir conditions using a set mathematical formula. In a practical sense, one of the required formula parameters, such as viscosity of the fluid, may not always be readily available. Reliable ratings, however, have been qualitatively assigned from the Pressure/Recovery Charts based on the nature of the build-up curves related to flow and pressure data. [email protected] AIFE Permeability Ratings By assigning a numerical value to the Permeability Ratings regional Permeability Maps can be constructed * * e.g. EX 60, HI -50, RH 40, AV 30, RL 20, LO 10, VN - 00

[email protected] AIFE Damage Ratings Perhaps the most valuable determination to be made from test data is in estimating the presence and magnitude of Well Bore Damage. This is particularly true of tests resulting in low fluid recovery. In the absence of recognition of degrees of damage, this has often been read as poor production potential, resulting in the needless abandonment of commercial producers. In the USDST file, damage ratings have been qualitatively assigned to each drill stem test based on the nature of the build-up curve compared to the recovery. Types of damage have been categorized as follows: CLASS I DE Definite Damage CLASS II PO Possible Damage CLASS III NO No Damage b Cannot Be Determined [email protected] AIFE Damage Ratings [email protected] AIFE Damage Ratings Definite Damage (deep)

[email protected] AIFE Incremental Detail Incremental detail is captured on each shut-in with a radius of curvature. Increments from the original report are preferred, however, in the event that increments are not provided or appear incorrect the shut-in(s) are digitized. Horner analysis is completed on each shut-in with a build-up curve to determine extrapolated pressure (P * or Pmax) and slope (for use in reservoir calculations). The best extrapolation/build-up curve is identified as the Pmax for that test. [email protected] AIFE Horner Plots Horner plots/extrapolated pressure are completed on each shut-in with a radius of curvature The Horner plot and build-up curves are included in the AIFE on-line report where applicable, including the p* and Horner Slope for each curve [email protected] AIFE Temperature Data Both the bottom hole temperature and recorder temperature (when taken separately from the bottom hole temperature) are recorded in the database Temperature data can be accessed for regional

mapping [email protected] AIFE Salinity Data When provided, the reported Salinity and Chloride content are recorded from the original DST report in the database Salinity data can be accessed for regional mapping [email protected] AIFE DST Recoveries All recoveries are captured from the original DST report and are reported with a fully detailed description; additionally, recoveries are verified against flowing pressures and any anomalies noted Gas rates are captured including the gas measuring instrument, the choke size utilized, the Psi reading and the calculated production rate On the DST reports the first, last and maximum gas rates during the test are provided [email protected] AIFE Formation Tops Each DST is assigned a Formation top. Historically when the database was constructed AIFE had access to the Amoco welldata database, the tops are

identified with standard formation abbreviation tables and have the prefix of I, F or R, the I denoting the Amoco top pick, the F the front page of the microfilm and the R denoting the formation given on the original report, the formation table is available to users upon request [email protected] AIFE Pressure/Depth Data Each recorder run on the test is reviewed as to its mechanical performance and the best recorder is utilized for the pressure information, pressures must also compare between recorders within recorder capacity and depth difference guidelines, this serves as a check on tool plugging and recorder performance All pressures are taken from the original report unless not provided and are that event are estimated, with comments indicating which pressures were estimated Recorder depths are the depths as reported on the DST report or taken from the tool string diagram, not the top or bottom of interval

The recorder depth allows for calculation of pressure/depth ratios and construction of pressure/elevation and pressure/depth charts [email protected] AIFE DST Data Captured The following data elements are captured in the DST-Data segment of the Database when provided on the original DST report (page 1 of 2):

All data is provided under a restrictive license without the right of resale nor disclosure to third parties except in the event of disclosure for the purpose of prospect generation for oil and gas. *The average cost to obtain an analyzed DST from a service (testing) company is $100-$200, provided the DST report is available or you provide it to the testing company. **Historical data collection costs for the raw DST report alone averaged $10.00 per test, current costs average $14.00 to $20 per test, without analysis or computerization [email protected] AIFE Database Interesting Statistics

In the AIFE Database the following Quality Codes have be assigned: A Quality 4012 tests B Quality 8388 tests C Quality 31,243 tests D Quality 38,336 tests E Quality 36,952 tests F Quality 32,195 tests G Quality 20,577 tests A Horner extrapolation greater than 150 psi from the read shut-in pressure is generally considered unreliable Based on this guideline 18.7% of the tests (F Quality) looked at on raw data sources have unreliable shut-in pressures Tests falling in the C and D Quality codes can have extrapolated pressures (true formation pressure) ranging from 30 to 150 psi above the shut-in pressure reported through raw DST data sources Testing Companies historically reported 5% of tests run as misruns, the AIFE database indicates that 12% of tests

were in fact misruns, in most cases the difference owing to bottom packer seat failure on straddle tests or plugged tools, the additional 7% not being reported as misruns on raw data sources Over 5900 tests in the AIFE database have a Damage classification of DE (Definite Damage) Over 7200 tests in the AIFE database have a Damage classification of PO (Possible Damage) The AIFE database contains historical Drill Stem Tests dating as far back as 1948 A large portion of the Historical Drill Stem tests were collected by Petroleum Research Corp. in the late 1950s and early 1960s, whom AIFE acquired Construction of the AIFE database commenced in 1981, at one point AIFE and its Canadian counterpart CIFE

employed over 40 individuals involved in database construction and Hydrodynamics CIFE Hydrodynamics personnel were the first in the industry to complete and sell regional Hydrodynamic studies The CIFE database covering the provincial and federal lands of Canada and containing over 260,000 analyzed Drill Stem tests has become the industry standard in Canada for computerized DST data CIFE was sold to IHS Canada in the early 2000s AIFE Principals have been associated with the Canadian/ U.S. database since 1978 AIFE has constructed Pressure related databases in a number of foreign countries, including Adam, Egypt and Qatar to name a few [email protected] General DST Industry Information

The AIFE database contains tests from over 120 testing companies Drill Stem testing on new wells has diminished significantly in the United States and Canada AIFE successfully managed to obtain DST records from Baker Industries (after obtaining legal releases from well operators) and the firms it acquired over the years, including Lynes, Virgs and Star Hughes Most testing Companies have destroyed their historical records, Halliburton, one of the largest testing companies (AIFE has over 33,000 tests run by Halliburton), has indicated to AIFE that its historical records have been purged Most oil and gas Companies have destroyed their historical records that contained the original DST reports, usually during buy-outs or mergers AIFE personnel spent over 10 years collecting DST information from testing companies and oil and gas firms AIFE no longer offers courses to the industry and the number of individuals who do so has diminished significantly with Mr. Hugh W. Reid, of Calgary, being the one individual who has had a lifetime passion for DSTs and Hydrodynamics still offering courses Mr. Reid is not affiliated with AIFE in any form and can be reached at [email protected] or his website at www.hughwreid.com should you have interest in his services [email protected] Data for over 170,000 Analyzed Drill Stem Tests in the Continental U.S. [email protected]
