After the city of Denton, Texas, in the Barnett Shale voted to ban hydraulic fracturing last November, the Texas legislature shifted into high gear to ensure no other Texas town would follow Denton’s renegade move.

Short Course

Houston Texas United States 01 December, 2015 04 December, 2015 13554
 
Houston, Texas, United States
1-4 December 2015
This course is designed to give participants the basic working tools to explore and develop hydrocarbons in salt basins. Because no two basins are alike, the focus is on understanding the processes and styles of salt-related deformation. At course completion participants should be able to under the depositional setting of layered evaporites, describe the mechanics of salt flow, interpret salt and stratal geometries associated with diapirs, salt welds, and minibasins, and assess more accurately the risks in the exploration of salt basins.
