The first PSGD-sanctioned publication: "Faulting and Fracturing in Shale and Self-sourced Reservoirs"

Published
American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)

The PSGD is happy to announce the release of our first sanctioned Special Issue of AAPG Bulletin titled Faulting and Fracturing in Shale and Self-sourced Reservoirs (November 2014 issue).

This special issue presents the current state of knowledge on the importance of structural and geomechanical controls on production from shale and self-sourced reservoirs.

This is an important step for the PSGD in that it showcases the hard work of the contributing authors, AAPG Editors, reviewers, and the AAPG publications team.

Below is the table of contents:
