Liquid-rich unconventional petroleum systems, defined as “fine-grained rock acting as both hydrocarbon source and reservoir, or a low permeability reservoir with inter-bedded or juxtaposed organic-rich shale with liquid hydrocarbon potential”, have become significant worldwide exploration targets. Understanding the hydrocarbon charge system (source, maturity, hydrocarbon phase, burial history, and retention) and production capabilities (rock properties, flow rates, and resource potential) are critical for a liquid-rich unconventional plays to be economically successful. Defining which geochemical and geological parameters are keys to success, as well as their associated limits, is needed to better assist the evaluation of new liquid-rich unconventional play opportunities.
In this context, the AAPG Canada Region hosts GTW Canada 2013. The AAPG GTW “ Integrated Hydrocarbon Charge Considerations in Liquid-Rich Unconventional Petroleum Systems”, is organized into sessions to address four key topics: 1) Liquid-Rich Unconventional Reservoirs (development); 2) Liquid-Rich Organic Shales (source); 3) Analytical and upcoming technologies (methods); and 4) Worldwide resource plays, with special emphasis on Canada (case studies).
To explore fully the key topics and facilitate knowledge sharing, the GTW format combines interdisciplinary talks with small group discussion among all workshop participants. The process results in a unique exchange of ideas, experiences, and opportunities for future collaboration.
