Aries Training

May 2-3, 2014
SPE Texas A&M hosted a two day training event on the Aires Economic System. Widely used throughout the industry, students were introduced to a number of the impressive functions this powerful program provides including the more popular decline cure and economic analysis of reservoirs.  
The training started with an introduction of the capabilities of the software and dove into a more detailed discussion of some of the modules available to users.  Highlights for participants incorporated topics learned into case studies at the end of the second day. This included incremental economics to justify a producing well and an economic evaluation of a drilling program using type curves developed from elsewhere in the same field.
Overall, this was a hugely successful training session with one participant summarizing "I enjoyed the entire event and am very glad you guys offer this kind of course. Thank you so much." Without the generosity of our sponsor, Halliburton, who provided not only the financial support but also a top trainer, this event would not have been possible.

Ernesto Valbuena & Carter Henderson

May 2, 2014 |2:05 p.m.


Carter Henderson, a junior Aggie petroleum engineering student, obtained 3rd place in the Student Paper contest held at the 5th Annual ‘East MeetsWest International Student Petroleum Congress and Career Expo’. The contest was held in Krakow, Poland last April and gathered 22 students of undergraduate and graduate level from all over the world displaying their technical work. First and second place were awarded to Master level students from the University of Texas and the University of Leoben in Austria.


Carter’s project started last fall as part of the SPE Mentorship Program working along with Ernesto Valbuena, a PhD candidate in our department. The program is intended to provide guidance and tools for undergraduate students to develop their Student Paper Contest work. Combined with his internship experience, Carter worked in the integration of surface and subsurface models to evaluate liquid yield production in tight gas reservoirs.


The Texas A&M PE Department and AGH University of Science and Technology Student Chapter kindly supported Carter’s attendance to the four-day long conference in Poland. Over 100 students from 30 countries joined the congress to share ideas and learn more about the energy industry. The conference included several technical and networking activities to disseminate knowledge and inspire future leaders.
