Dont miss this 2-day opportunity to develop a solid understanding of shale and tight oil and gas. 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. Key Learning Outcomes Understand geologic definitions and reservoir characteristics of shale and tight Explore various concepts, terminology, oil and gas composition and processing Compare and contrast conventional and unconventional reservoirs Review the 10 key US developments that have allowed unconventional to exceed conventional Assess the impacts of unconventionals on global markets and activity Comprehend the reasons why shale and tight rock had been overlooked for so long Appreciate lessons from Australia CSG that apply to shale development Discover 7 critical issues for evaluating development potential in new areas Identify the equipment and services required for shale and tight rock reservoirs Understand well design options and issues Review the commercial evaluation stages Analyse methods and tests to calculate oil and gas volumes and forecast production rates Review hydraulic fracturing, its design features and environmental issuesAbout the CourseThis 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.
