Unconventionals Update

8-9 December 2014
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The goal of this course is to provide a review and an update on the status and lessons learned in the world’s major unconventional plays. The goal is to compare the approaches taken in the major plays, from reconnaissance exploration to acquisition of acreage, well siting, drilling program planning, completions, and production. In some cases, secondary recovery and re-entries will be discussed (in the case of steep decline curves and the need to restimulate the well). This course will review techniques, technologies, and prevailing philosophies.
