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:


Historical Perspective - how we got to where we are today.
Main Characteristics of these accumulations.

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.

Market Research

The International Affairs Institute (IAI) and OCP Policy Center recently launched a new book: The Future of Natural Gas. Markets and Geopolitics.


The book is an in-depth analysis of some of the fastest moving gas markets, attempting to define the trends of a resource that will have a decisive role in shaping the global economy and modelling the geopolitical dynamics in the next decades.

Some of the top scholars in the energy sector have contributed to this volume such as Gonzalo Escribano, Director Energy and Climate Change Programme, Elcano Royal Institute, Madrid, Coby van der Linde, Director Clingendael International Energy Programme, The Hague and Houda Ben Jannet Allal, General Director Observatoire Méditerranéen de l’Energie (OME), Paris.
