Course description

Advanced Practices in Exploration and Development of Unconventional Resources - EDUR

In this course, participants will learn and practice the techniques used by various disciplines to evaluate unconventional resources. The objective is to understand the significance and limits of the various tools in order to optimize integration, improve communication, and allow for greater efficiency in follow-up projects.

In addition to covering the techniques, many of the exercises and problems use data from active producing unconventional basins.

 

Several spreadsheets are provided to allow for quick look reviews.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Geoscientists, engineers, and managers who need an enhanced understanding of assessment techniques for unconventional resources and how to integrate them.
