HGS Continuing Education Short Course Critical Analysis of Shale Plays
Thursday February 16, 2012
8:30am to 5:30pm at the Marathon Oil Conference Center
speaker: Gary Citron, Rose and Associates
This one day course provides a brief overview of the comprehensive integrated treatment to characterize shale (and tight sand) plays.
Beginning with practical definitions and geo-formational processes, R&A describes the needed geologic ingredients and how to measure them for use in screening for successful resource plays. This is followed by the techniques to probabilistically estimate the in-place and recoverable resource potential. The geologic ingredients are then revisited in spatial form to address the geologic concerns that form the risk system to grade the plays. The volumetric assessments are complimented with an understanding of how type curves and development will impact the ultimate recovery and how a staged approach focuses the evaluation team on the key decision variables at each stage to properly assess the ultimate value a shale play may contribute to a company’s portfolio.
Seating is limited by the venue to 60
