Petrophysics of Unconventional Reservoirs

As technology continues to improve, unconventional gas finds are becoming increasingly more popular within the industry. Oil and gas companies along with governments are investing more in uconventional resources because of the rising scarcity of conventional oil reserves. With new technologies and skills being developed, unconventional gas is a concept that many see will become more easily produced and economically valuable over time. To help geoscientists better understand the aspects during evaluation of unconventional reservoirs, AAPG in conjunction with the Unconventional Resources Technology Conference (URTeC), will be offering a one day course covering various petrophyscial models. Michael Homles, president with Digital Formation, will be instructing participants through these various models along with many insights involved with the petrophysics of unconventional reservoirs. This pre-conference short course will be taking place Saturday, August 23, 2014 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado. For more information: Petrophysics of Unconventional Reservoirs

Who Should Attend

This course is applicable for all technical disciplines involved or interested in unconventional reservoirs: geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists, reservoir engineers and completion engineers. Members of management and finance will also find it useful to understand the importance of petrophysics in unconventional reservoir appraisal.

Upon completion of this course, participants will have an understanding of:

  • Petrophysical techniques for the evaluation of coal bed methane, unconventional oil and gas reservoirs and tight gas sands
  • Particular concentration on unconventional oil and gas reservoirs
  • Importance of integration of petrophysics with geology, geochemistry, geophysics reservoir engineering and reservoir completion

Course Content

The course is designed to cover the various petrophysical models in the evaluation of unconventional reservoirs — coalbed methane, tight gas sands, unconventional oil and gas reservoirs. We will highlight the petophysical differences between conventional and unconventional reservoirs, and integration of geochemistry with petrophysics is emphasized. Additionally the impact of petrophysics on other discipline — geology, geophysics, and engineering — is described. Examples of each of the unconventional reservoirs are included. The course should be of value to all involved or interested in unconventional reservoir appraisal.
