They occur in both clastics and carbonates. In as much as these resource plays will be a main focus of future gas exploration, it is critical to understand the occurrence and characteristics of these huge unconventional accumulations. They will also become increasingly important in worldwide exploration as a large source for future gas supplies and reserves.
The main topics that are covered in the course are:
Current Working Model - why these large accumulations occur.
Important Geochemical Parameters that are required for a play.
Critical Pressure, Fluid, and Reservoir attributes - how to evaluate and map.
Sweet Spots - the various types that have made these plays even more economic.
Examples and Case Histories in the U.S. and Canada - what criteria were used to make
the important initial discoveries.
Exploration Approach - a step-by-step approach outlining how to use basic rock, log,
pressure, and test data to develop and evaluate these opportunities.
