In conjunction with Unconventional Resources Technology Conference (URTeC)

Petrophysics of Unconventional Reservoirs

23 August 2014
Denver, Colorado, United States
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 disciplines — 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.

Course Outline
