Accelerating the characterization process in unconventional reservoirs

There is a lack of clarity around which new approaches are needed to find commonalities which can be applied across plays; how to accelerate the assessment of unconventional reservoirs and how to make strong play evaluations based on small data sets.

But you know this.

What you need are applicable and practical case studies detailing how to avoid the risk of incorrect geo-chemical analysis and inaccurate data correlation throughout the characterization process. You need the techniques and methodologies to ensure you avoid the critical financial implications of poor reservoir characterization.

Reservoir Characterization for Unconventionals will provide you with the opportunity to tackle these challenges alongside your industry peers. Our speakers are at the forefront of data analysis, lithology characterization and reservoir navigation. Through 4 days of technical panels and networking they will share their expertise with you.

This year’s agenda delves into the granular technicalities of reservoir characterization as well as the strategic challenge of multi-disciplinary collaboration. Cut through the hype of unconventionals and you will:

  • Uncover the commonalities that exist between plays: Shell show you how to capitalize on this knowledge
  • Build a business case for investment in unconventional reservoir characterization to reduce development risk later on
  • Remove the guesswork: Translate geochemical analysis into real impact characterization
  • Examine geological uncertainties to build a petro-physical model that is applicable in multiple plays
  • Accurately predicting reservoir performance: Correlating data correctly with production to avoid current discrepancies
  • Improve communication between geoscience, reservoir engineering and completions: Working across the disciplines to understand and mitigate the frustrations of each department
