This 5-day course is designed for technical professionals involved in evaluating or developing unconventional gas reservoirs. Unconventional reservoirs represent the largest gas resource in the world and in the past few years they became the major source of natural gas production in North America. As a result, unconventional reservoirs are now receiving a tremendous amount of attention from various countries, oil & gas companies, and investors. Almost all of the university and industry training is directed at conventional reservoirs and so many professionals in the industry are eager to gain a better understanding of the unique terms and concepts involved in evaluating and developing unconventional reservoirs.
The first three days of the course will focus primarily on gas development from Coal (CBM, CSG, CSM) and the final two days will focus on developing Shale Gas. In addition, the evaluation methods for Shale Gas combine methods from Coal, Oil and Tight reservoir development and so attendees will also gain a good understanding of a variety of different ongoing plays and the methods applied to each type of unconventional reservoir.
Class examples are planned for each day and so attendees will need to bring either a laptop or calculator to solve simple equations. The case studies and class examples will present the steps to determining; resource volumes, maximum allowable investments, recovery factors, specific well locations, appropriate hydraulic frac size, and reserve volumes for unconventional reservoirs. The data for the example problems will come from actual development projects, primarily those where the instructor has been involved, to help illustrate the quality and types of data usually available for evaluation.
Attendees are assumed to have a reasonably good understanding of terms and methods applied in the development of conventional oil and gas fields as the course will focus on those items that are fairly unique to unconventional reservoirs.
