Join us in northern California in May to participate in an event that brings together geology and geophysics to evaluate new ways to look at pore pressure and fracturing as they relate to reservoir characterization.  Gain insights into shale plays; discuss new approaches in geomechanics, seismic and imaging; explore modeling and characterization.   More than 25 presentations, with ample time for discussion, debate, and networking. An event to remember — don’t miss it! SESSION 1: Developments in Reservoir Characterization: The Role of Pore Pressure and Fracturing
SESSION 2: Using Seismic for Fracture Modeling and Predictions
SESSION 3: Seismic in Pore Pressure Prediction
SESSION 4: Pore modeling for Pressure Prediction
SESSION 5: Shale Gas and Unconventionals: Fractures, Pore Pressure
