About the Symposium

Unconventional resources exploitation in tight reservoirs and shales has come a long way in recent years and as we witness different unconventional plays unfold throughout the region some challenges still obstruct the optimum exploitation and development of these complex cycles. 

However, the industry is dynamic and agile, and scientific and technological advancements continue to guide us towards a better understanding. Over the past few years, the industry has witnessed significant improvement in performance over the entire sphere of unconventional plays from exploration to appraisal to delineation and development. More parties are joining the unconventional approach and contributing to better evaluations, improved operational efficiencies, enhanced production and decline rates, innovative economic approaches and more.  This builds realistic hopes that unconventional plays in the Middle East will soon become major economic assets.

The symposium will include keynote speeches, technical presentations, panel discussions and Q&A sessions designed to bring together regional and international professionals associated with unconventional reservoirs.
