Who Should Attend
This course is valuable for geoscientists, geophysicists, engineers, students, economists, and any others who are actively involved or interested in applying maturation/organic facies, geochemistry, and petroleum system modeling to the evaluation of shale gas and/or shale oil resources. The participants for this comprehensive one day short course will gain practical knowledge of the unconventional resource shale plays from various mature and frontier basins.
This short course will evaluate the following aspects of shale oil and shale gas evaluation:
Maturation/Organic facies and Geochemistry by Dr. Prasanta Mukhopadhyay (Muki)
- Implication of anoxia and source rock facies variability
- Implications of heat flow in basin analysis and maturation parameters for shale oil and shale gas evaluation
- Correlation of petrological and geochemical organic facies and kerogen type and their changes during advanced maturity
- A short geochemical appraisal of shale oil and shale gas evaluation including an application of kinetic parameters for various source rocks, their expulsion efficiency, and mass balance of hydrocarbons in mature and over-mature source rocks
Petroleum Systems Modelling by Dr. Thomas Hantschel
- Theoretical/practical aspects of heat flow, pore pressure and basis for geochemical kinetics
- One dimensional Basin Modelling exercises with risk analysis for unconventional plays
- Theoretical aspects of multi-component PVT, adsorption/free gases and migration
- A 2D/3D Petroleum Systems Modelling for shale gas and shale oil plays: Example: Haynesville play etc.
