Reservoir Characteristics and Production Properties of Shale Gas
speaker:  Randy Miller
The objective of the course is to provide training in the various aspects of reservoir characterization of shale reservoirs and to increase the knowledge of how these reservoirs may behave based on their key reservoir properties. Participants will learn how to make sure they are “targeting the right shale” and what type of production levels can be expected.
By the end of the course participants should be able to accomplish the following:
·         Know what the important shale reservoir parameters are and how to determine them
·         Understand what makes a good shale reservoir in terms of productivity
·         Have an understanding of the variability in shale reservoirs
·         Be able to identify shale reservoirs from open-hole logs and determine OGIP and OOIP
·         Identify the issues in hydraulic fracturing of shale reservoirs
·         Gain knowledge of exploration techniques useful for screening potential shale reservoirs
 Who Should Attend
Geologists, petrophysicists and engineers interested in learning the state-of-the-art techniques for characterizing shale reservoirs and the parameters that influence production properties. The course is geared to address both exploration and exploitation of shale reservoirs.
This course is an introductory course in shale reservoir evaluation. It includes reservoir geology in terms of depositional facies, mineralogy, fractures, and rock type delineation. Organic geochemistry of shale reservoirs is presented in terms of organic content, Kerogen types, maturity, hydrocarbon generation, and secondary porosity development. Core analysis methods and interpretation techniques for petrophysical properties are presented and compared among various shales. The core analysis data are correlated and used to calibrate open-hole logs for reservoir properties and calculation of hydrocarbons in place. Several examples are presented and compared.
Laboratory measurements in support of completion and stimulation are reviewed and include Geomechanical properties, fluid sensitivity, and fracture conductivity. Completion and stimulation techniques will be presented in terms of where to target the horizontal, lateral length, stages, perf clusters, and proppant-fluid carrier systems. Production analysis techniques to evaluate the stimulation and well performance will be presented using various case histories.
