Course description

Unconventional Reservoir Properties Fundamentals

This skill module is designed for professional engineers and geoscientists with little experience in unconventional reservoirs who wish to quickly learn the key elements of these reservoirs and the technologies to exploit them. Focused on shale (tight) oil, tight gas, and coalbed methane this course begins with an introduction to unconventionals, then reviews geoscience elements from the previous modules and demonstrates their use in unconventional reservoir engineering

Fluid sampling for laboratory tests and fluid property correlations are presented. Drilling and completion of wells in unconventional reservoirs are considered, with a focus on horizontal wells. Stimulation fluid systems and proppants are briefly discussed. A key test for stimulation design, diagnostic fracture injection tests (DFITs) is presented along with classic test signatures.

Attendees should leave this course with a better understanding of the basic physics of unconventional reservoirs and the fluids they hold as well as the basics of placing wells in those reservoirs to drain those fluids.
