About our premier workshop:

The dramatic recent success in developing oil and gas from unconventional reservoirs has caused companies and countries to scramble for information and people who can assist in developing the next great play. Most of the focus is on CBM and Shale. These two resource types share some key technology that is very unique from what is used in developing conventional oil and gas reservoirs. This technology and the methods for identifying commercial potential in shale and in CBM are reviewed during this course.

The course is split into two stand-alone modules, one on CBM and the other on shale, so attendees can choose to learn more about one or both of these exciting development opportunities.

During the past two years the technology for developing gas from unconventional reservoirs have been successfully refined to allow the same developers to extract oil and natural gas liquids. These opportunities are also covered in the shale module.

The primary objective for this four day course is to: outline the key elements of developing unconventional reservoirs, especially those issues that are uncommon to conventional oil and gas development.  The first two days are dedicated to CBM and the final two days focus on Shale Gas, Shale Oil and Tight Oil because these are the reservoirs currently receiving the most attention.

The main course topics include: fundamental geologic definitions and properties, core and log analysis, resource assessment, horizontal drilling, completions for unconventional reservoirs, hydraulic fracture treatment design and analysis, production forecasting and well performance correlations. In addition, the results of several case studies are presented to illustrate how development and evaluation techniques are evolving.

Key Benefits

Participants will leave the course understanding: the key terminology and testing techniques applied to unconventional reservoirs; the information needed for unconventional reservoirs that is rarely mentioned in university or industry training courses; the essential differences between developing an unconventional reservoir and a conventional oil & gas reservoir; the global activities and trends for developing CBM and shale.
