As commodity prices have dropped, many shale plays have become uneconomical as statistical plays and have increasingly become recognized as geological plays demanding new insights from data.
This one-hour live e-symposium, which includes material for one full day of independent study, provides an overview of the integrated use of 3D seismic data for exploration and development in major shale plays in the continental U.S. with applicability worldwide. The live portion will be followed by a full day of independent study (not a live event). The one-hour live e-symposium can be accessed from any computer anywhere in the world using a high-speed internet connection. After the event is over, you will receive via email information about accessing the asynchronous segment (not live) which consists of your independent study materials, to be accessed and studied at any time. You will be able to email responses to the readings, along with your study question answers for CEU credit (if you sign up for the extended package).
The expert, David Paddock, provides a petrophysical, geophysical, and geomechanical background of the major shale plays and discusses how to high-grade using seismic. The plays covered in the e-symposium include the following:
