E-152 - Unconventional Field Development Program - Hydrocarbons in Unconventional Settings

E-152 - Unconventional Field Development Program - Hydrocarbons in Unconventional Settings

3 days
GEO/UNCON
Sessions
This course is not scheduled.
Who should attend?

Audience

    • Geologists, geophysicists, engineers, managers, E&P professionals in charge of basin exploration and prospect evaluation.
    • E&P professionals involved in production of unconventional hydrocarbons.

Level

  • Foundation
  • This course provides a general introduction to various non-conventional hydrocarbons, focused solely on a consistent geological rationale to the different potentially producing objectives, through a “petroleum system” approach.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • understand the geological rationale of unconventional resources as an extension of the petroleum system concept,
  • acquire a general knowledge of all unconventional resources,
  • understand what is at stake in this recent domain and future potential impacts.
Course Content
PETROLEUM SYSTEM CONCEPT (Reminder) 0.5 day

UNCONVENTIONAL RESOURCES (Part 1)

1 day

  • Oil shales.
  • Heavy oils, extra heavy oils, tar sands.
  • Geological biogenic gases (ex-early diagenesis, ex-oil biodegradation).
  • Gas hydrates.
  • “Clean Coal” (coal bed methane, coal mine methane, underground coal gasification).

UNCONVENTIONAL RESOURCES (Part 2)

1 day

  • Shale plays (shale gas, shale oil).
  • Tight gas in basin centered gas system.

UNCONVENTIONAL RESOURCES FROM AN EXTENDED PETROLEUM PERSPECTIVE

0.5 day

  • Burial & thermal history - Source rock maturation.
  • Kinetic parameter determination, kerogen expulsion and cracking.
  • Migration of hydrocarbons and pressure regime.
Ways & Means
  • Examples from all over the world commented by an expert.
  • Interactive discussions.
