Gary Citron offers his course on March 4 as a part of the HGS Short Course curriculum. Critical Assessment of Shale Plays examines reserves, and discusses where engineers and geologists provide unique perspectives in the determination of risk, reserves, and ultimate recovery.
The one day course covers characterization techniques at the handoff interface between geoscientists and engineers. After a brief refresher on using statistics to describe the uncertainty associated with various shale plays, we address play segmentation via compositing techniques and selection of segments with the preferred geologic attributes for future pilot drilling. We then focus on the relationship between program sample size and the probability of achieving drilling pilot goals, uncertainty associated with various aspects of the production type curve, and finish with decision tree structuring and the aggregation techniques to model the development program.
