Even in mature shale basins questions arise about the origin and location of the most mature and organic-rich location, and distribution of porosity and permeability that determine the best producing intervals During this workshop the participants will learn techniques to interpret organic-rich mudrocks (shales and mudstones) from basin to nano-scale. The techniques taught will contribute to understand the characteristics and distribution of sweet spots within a shale basin. Differences of shale basins will be addressed, and the participants will be able to apply mudrock depositional, sedimentological, sequence stratigraphic, geochemical and petrophysical principles to exploration areas and production assets of shale basin.
Course Structure: 16 modules delivered over 4 days with max.6 hours per day and multiple breaks
Geoscientist, reservoir engineer or manager who desires to develop a better understanding of the geological, mechanical and chemical character of mudrock systems and how mudrock attributes vary in the context of shale gas/oil reservoir exploitation.
