Gas Shale in the Rocky Mountains and Beyond - Guidebook

Category: Digital PublicationsGas Shale in the Rocky Mountains and Beyond - Guidebook

Published: 2008

Editors: David G. Hill, Paul G. Lillis, John B. Curtis

About: This guidebook includes papers on various aspects of resource evaluation, exploration, petrophysics, reservoir potential, well deliverability and drilling and completion technology. As new shale plays are explored for and developed, it is important to learn from analogs and case histories, including those from outside the Rocky Mountain region. While the emphasis is on natural gas, we realize there is also value in learning from our experiences from shales and other fine-grained source rocks that have produced oil from Rocky Mountain basins.
