Gas Hydrates: An Unconventional Resource Horizon for India
Gas hydrate resources in India are huge and potentially represent a global energy game changer if the technologies for production from hydrate reservoirs are techno-economically established. Several initiatives have been undertaken by NGHP in India for gas hydrate exploration in deepwater offshore.
Describing Shale Well Performance Using Transient Well Analysis
Fabián Vera, Baker Hughes, and Christine Ehlig-Economides, Texas A&M, explain transient well analysis and how it contributes to shale development.
The Role of IOCs and NOCs in Developing Unconventional Oil and Gas Reservoirs
It may not matter whether the IOCs or the NOCs are in charge. The work to be done is the same and the same people will likely be doing it. Unconventional resources already comprise 40% of production in North America and they are expected to grow globally.
What Will Unlock Development of Unconventional Resources?
Unconventional fossil fuels are the most important drivers of resource growth. These are sources of oil or gas for which production technology is immature. Economic and geopolitical factors encourage the technology innovations that convert unconventional resources to conventional reserves.
