This course examines key terminology and technical aspects of evaluating and developing shale and tight rock reservoirs, as well as its markets, issues and challenges.
This 2-day introductory course explains what is unique about developing oil and gas from shale and tight rock reservoirs.
Several examples and videos will also be presented to help provide an overview of the fundamental terms and concepts applied in developing oil and gas reservoirs. It is most appropriate for those involved with the oil and gas industry who would like more information about the terminology and technical aspects of development without digging deeply into the details.
The demand for this course has been driven by the huge recent success in extracting both oil and gas from these abundant, though complex reservoirs. The success has disrupted local and global energy markets and forecasts and has significantly changed the essential training requirements for companies, universities and individuals.
