AAPG’s newest Hedberg Conference, “Fundamental Controls on Shale Oil Resources and Production,” will be held April 28-30 in Beijing, China.
The conference will shed light on new ideas and collaborative ventures between industry and academia that could accelerate the exploration and development of shale oil resources in mature petroleum source kitchens in petroliferous basins.
Such advances are likely to be some of the most im portant developments in the oil and gas industry in the next decade due to the depletion of conventional petroleum traps and the inefficient recovery factors of unconventional resources.
Technical themes of the conference will include petroleum generation, primary expulsion and secondary migration; shale and mudrocks as reservoirs; hydrocarbon enrichment mechanisms in shale and mudrock systems; geophysical technologies related to shale oil exploration; multistage fracturing for shale and mudstone reservoirs; innovation production techniques; and production allocation.
A variety of oral and poster presentations will be made throughout the conference by leading experts in the field while conversation will be encouraged to develop and share new ideas for the industry.
