Course Information:


This one-day course is intended for technical professionals requiring an introduction and overview of how Shale Gas, Coalbed Methane, Tight Gas and Conventional Gas reservoirs are evaluated and developed. Common and unique features of each type of reservoir will be presented along with an explanation of some of the key terminology used in the gas industry. The course is intended for those who are not familiar with one or more of the four types of natural gas plays or who are interested in learning more about the overall evaluation and development process for natural gas. The target audience includes engineers, geologists, investors, managers, government officials, planners, financial and business development evaluators, service providers and support staff. Participants will leave the course understanding the: Primary differences between the four types of natural gas reservoirs; Unique development history for each gas source; Key terminology used in natural gas evaluations and development; Tools and techniques used for geologic and engineering evaluations; Horizontal drilling basics; Hydraulic fracturing basics; Environmental concerns regarding drilling and fracturing; Development activities around the world; and top new prospects and new technology

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.
