Abstract: This course is an introduction to unconventional play prospecting and development, which will provide a broad overview of “start to finish” play development process. The course includes topics covering regional investigation, prospect selection and appraisal, drilling, completion planning and production optimization. The course touches on geologic data assessment, reservoir characterization methods, drilling techniques and planning, geophysical well logging, landing zone assessment, completion implications, and production optimization. Participants will come away with a broad understanding of many factors pertinent to successful development of a project area. The content of the course will be drawn from real life North American examples, but the workflows and techniques described can be applied to unconventional plays anywhere in the world.
