Maximize Potential Returns, An Integrated Approach To Shale Plays

As our knowledge and understanding of shale plays (both gas and liquids) deepens every day, it becomes increasingly evident that in order to maximize potential returns, an integrated approach to shale plays is important. Geologists, engineers, geophysicists, petrophysicists, and geochemists need to talk to each other to develop a deeper and more complete picture of what is really happening with the reservoirs as well as the larger trends.

Shale Plays: An Integrated Approach for Enhanced Exploration, Development and Valuation
Houston, TX | 12-14 November 2012

Sessions will cover the following topics:

  • Integrating geology and geophysics for better understanding of fractures
  • Integrating geology and geophysics for better reservoir characterization
  • Integrating petrophysics, geology, geochemistry to understand reservoir connectivity
  • Case studies that demonstrate unusual ways to integrate data and make good decisions
  • Reserves estimate revisions with better understanding of reservoir heterogeneity
  • Geological issues involved in recoverable reserves estimates
  • New geochemical factors used in gas-liquids determinations
  • Hydraulic fracturing “lessons learned”
  • Super sweet spots and the “new” strat traps: integrated ways to find them
  • Strategic decision-making: tactics for finding information, evaluating data without bias, and eliminating poor decision-making
  • Integrating geology / geophysics / engineering / petrophysics for bargain hunting: evaluating portfolios, tips for reviewing acreage, etc.
