Welcome to IGS

Welcome to the webpage for the Illinois Geological Society (IGS)! The IGS was founded in 1937 and is an affiliated society of the American Association of Petroleum Geologist serving all professional geologists working in the Illinois Basin. We are a non-profit, scientific organization that hosts monthly seminars related geologic topics. Meetings are held between the months from September to May (except December). Seminars are usually related to hydrocarbon exploration but also include general geologic topics. In addition, the IGS organizes field trips and workshops, co-hosts conferences, and awards scholarships to students studying geology. If you are interested in joining the IGS, please check out the Membership page or attend the next meeting. We look forward to meeting you!

    Abstract:

    The Completion Engineer integrates the requirements of a number of other disciplines (Reservoir, Drilling, Production, etc) to maximize the value of a hydrocarbon resource.  This almost always requires evaluating competing and conflicting factors to determine the ‘best’ option for a particular problem.  This talk will demonstrate a decision making process that allows the stakeholders to compare various options in a fair and roboust way.  Two real onshore or offshore examples will be reviewed depending on SPE chapter interest.

    Members will take away a new methodology on how to compare competing factors that influence a completion or well design.
