Shales and other low-permeability formations require multistage completions, hydraulic fracturing, and horizontal wells to produce at economic rates. This course focuses on the multistage completion systems that are used in these applications, including plug-and-perf, ball-activated systems (frac sleeves), and coiled tubing-activated systems (annular fracturing).

Make the transition from new manager to leader in your organization by learning to lead with emotional intelligence (EI). Gain insights into yourself and increase your effectiveness by closing the gap of how others see you and how you see yourself. Increase social awareness, flexibility, social responsibility, interpersonal relationships, and decision making. EI is proven to cultivate proficiencies in motivating, inspiring, and influencing your team and colleagues. This program combines proven strategies with the practical application of the theory in a workshop-like setting.

This 16 hour course will include a mix of lectures, short exercises and discussion sessions. The content will be prepared to anticipate the likelihood that participants will have different levels of technical knowledge about petroleum geology. In addition to defining the main unconventional reservoir types, the course will distinguish between exploration and development drivers, and expose participants (through short, hands-on exercises) to other types of geoscience and engineering tools (Rock Eval, XRD, decline curves, etc.) of importance for unconventional reservoir characterization.
