Introduction to Shale Gas

Please note: Course is offered at the beginning of every month. You may sign up for it at any time, and your course will begin the first day of the upcoming month.
Who Should Attend
This course is ideal for individuals who want to learn about shale gas plays.
Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to analyze, compare, and contrast shale plays in the United States and to identify emerging areas in the world. You will be able to identify major plays, describe the productive formations, and to discuss the technologies that are implemented in order for the formation to produce gas in sufficiently quantities to be economically viable.

Course Content

Shale gas represents an important direction in hydrocarbon exploration and production. Success in shale play production requires an understanding of the complex nature of heterogeneous reservoirs. This course introduces the learner to the fundamentals of shale gas, including current theories that explain its origin, and how to determine which reservoirs are commercially viable.

Key Topics
  • shale gas
  • naturally fractured reservoirs
  • heterogeneity in formations
  • horizontal drilling
  • geochemistry of shale gas
  • thermal maturation
Course Structure

This course is offered at the beginning of every month. You may sign up for it at any time, and your course will begin the first day of the upcoming month. This course is designed to be equivalent to a 3 credit-hour graduate-level seminar. It is a 4-week online course which consists of 4 one-week units that involve readings, multimedia, guiding questions, and assignments for you to do and to email to your instructor. You will receive feedback from your instructor, and upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a certificate.

  • Unit I: Definition of Shale Gas
  • Unit II: Early Shale Plays
  • Unit III: Recent and Emerging Shale Plays
  • Unit IV: New Technologies, New Techniques

Required Work: For each unit, readings, research/review of recent articles, and a short paper in response to guiding questions.
