Shale Evaluation and Development
This 1-day course covers the basic geological aspects and key properties of shale gas. It also reviews the status and characteristics of various shale gas plays, and the factors that control gas-in-place and productivity. Participants will learn how to collect, analyze and interpret critical data, to calculate reserve volumes and forecast production. They will also gain practical insight and learn techniques for quality control and due diligence. Other topics include:
• The analysis of gas resources
• How to optimize hydraulic fracture treatments
• Forecasting production
• Global shale gas developments
Why You Should Attend
The class will lay the foundation for your broader understanding of shale gas developments. It’s also a great opportunity to network with others from the shale gas industry.
Who Should Attend
This course is for engineers, geologists, managers, regulators, planners and anyone else involved in evaluating or developing shale gas plays.
Participants are assumed to have a basic understanding of general engineering and geologic terms.
