The Oklahoma Energy Resources Board and its Sustaining Oklahoma Energy Resources program will hold their first technology forum on Thursday in Oklahoma City.
“We have 100 registered to attend,” said Dara McBee, Communications Director at OERB. “It’s a forum designed by marginal well producers for marginal well producers.”
The last SOER Technology Forum was held in Tulsa but the organization decided to hold one this year in Oklahoma City at OERB headquarters, 500 NE 4 Street.
As McBee explained, the Oklahoma Oil and Gas Technology Forum will focus on day-to-day questions and challenges faced by small producers.
“We’ll have sessions and discussions about acidizing, fracturing and cost pressure and the economic evaluation of workovers to offer realistic and multi-faceted solutions,” added McBee. “There’ll even be talk about vertical well fracturing.”
The event begins at 11:30 a.m. with a luncheon discussion. An afternoon session will focus on the forms, rules and regulations of the Oklahoma Corporation Commission and the Oklahoma Tax Commission.
Some of the regulatory topics will include e-permitting, lease location and database searches, completion of common forms and Tax Commission forms required for operators.
The event is free and open to the public.
