Shale and Tight Reservoir Technical Analysis 

This course is intended for those who are very familiar with reservoir evaluation and development concepts for conventional reservoirs but who are interested in learning more about the unique technologies applied to shale and tight reservoirs. Recent success in developing oil from very low permeability reservoirs in North America has sparked global interest in how these plays are being identified, evaluated and developed. This course addresses these issues that require unique approaches, as compared to conventional oil reservoirs, primarily in the areas of well design, hydraulic fracture design, log analysis, core analysis and production forecasting. This course is intended for engineers, geologists, and technical support staff. All cancellations must be received no later than 14 days prior to the course start date.
