An AAPG Geosciences Technology Workshop

Unconventionals Update

4-5 November 2014
  |  
Austin, Texas, United States

Join us to learn the latest technologies being successfully applied in the main unconventional plays, and how the knowledge can be applied to other plays. The presentations will cover the geochemical profiling, integrated 3D seismic, fracture characterization, geomechanics, reservoir architecture, pore evaluations, diagenesis, pore pressure, brittleness, and more that are used to explore for and develop unconventional reservoirs.

Participants will also learn about the integrated techniques (geology, geochemistry, geophysics, engineering) to create effective workflows, determine which kinds of tests and data need to be collected for effective exploration, infill drilling, increased density (and issues of fracture interference), stacked pay development, proppant and fluid selection (avoiding formation damage), reservoir characterization, workflows, and decision-making.

This two-day geosciences technology workshop focuses on the application of new understanding, technology, and techniques to optimize exploration, drilling, completions, and stimulation.

  • Pore architecture and organic porosity
  • Fractures (natural and induced)
  • Pore pressure
