China’s Shale Plays: Subject of Research Conference

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
