Geomechanics and Reservoir Characterization of Shales and Carbonates
16-17 July 2013 | Baltimore, Maryland USA
The goal of this intensive two-day workshop is to engage geologists, geophysicists, engineers, and geochemists in a lively, multi-disciplinary discussion of new findings, lessons learned, and emerging (“young”) technologies related to shale play geomechanics and reservoir characterization as they relate to finding sweet spots, mapping fractures and fracture behavior, optimizing hydraulic fracturing, understanding fracturing fluid behavior, selecting proppants, as well as optimizing horizontal drilling and staged completions. The focus will be on established and emerging shale and carbonate plays of northeastern North America, including the Marcellus, Utica, New Albany, Lorraine, and others. Analogues from other regions will also be reviewed.
