China is vigorously promoting shale production, which creates excellent opportunities for joint ventures, consulting, and knowledge exchange.  With more than 80 presentations, both oral and posters, the first-ever joint AAPG-SEPM-Petrochina-China University of Petroleum research conference on Fine-Grained Sedimentary Systems and Unconventional Resources presents an opportunity for unique knowledge exchange, and other potential opportunities. Held September 22-28 in Beijing, China, the event will consist of a conference as well as two field trips and a short course.

Sessions (September 23-25)

1. Fine-grained sedimentary systems and their depositional environments and distribution
2. Reservoir characteristics of fine-grained sediments and their heterogeneities
3. Hydrocarbon generation and occurrence in fine-grained sedimentary systems
4. Petrophysical and geomechanical properties of fine-grained sedimentary systems and their geophysical responses
5. Unconventional hydrocarbon extraction technologies for fine-grained sedimentary systems
6. Case studies and special problems
