Course Overview:

Unconventional reservoirs can add huge amounts of additional energy to our world resources bases like organic shale in terms of Shale gas, shale oil, tight gas and coal-bed methane. These unconventional reservoirs can transform the world global energy market through advances in reservoir characterization, drilling, and completion technologies. Reservoir characterization and properties have great influences on the exploration and development processes, it is not through a single discipline that can provide a fulfilling description of the reservoir characteristics especially for unconventional reservoirs. Moreover, unconventional sources can be defined by their difference of intrinsic of their geological sittings, origins, and tapping mechanisms, thus having different methodologies for exploration, production, and development methods. Therefore, it is very important to well express and identify the necessary parameters for unconventional characterization of these reservoirs for defining reservoir rock and fluid properties.

Who should attend?

Participants should have a foundational background in reservoir engineering, petroleum geology, and production operations. Proficiency in decline curve Modeling & reservoir characterization is essential. Understanding the challenges of unconventional reservoirs, including complex geological formations, is crucial. Additionally, familiarity with horizontal well fracturing techniques for production optimization is a prerequisite.
