What makes a shale play prospective?

One of the biggest challenges with shale plays is determining whether or not they are economically viable. The capital outlay required to develop an acreage position, together with the high costs of horizontal drilling and staged fracs can make the expenditure rather daunting.

Therefore, it is more important than ever to find ways to determine a new shale play’s prospectivity.  Don’t miss a case study e-symposium on May 19 on a shale in Alabama’s Black Warrior Basin.  http://www.aapg.org/education/online/details.cfm?ID=222

It takes place on May 19 at 2 pm CDT.  Don’t delay!
