The primary course objectives are to provide a quick-paced, non-technical overview of how the oil & gas industry identifies and evaluates the commercial potential of a shale play, the process applied to extract the hydrocarbons, the impact shale development has had on North America, and the timing for when such development will have a significant impact in China, Europe, southeast Asia and other global regions. Course time will also be dedicated to some of the unique shale development terminology and some examples of how to quality check information and advice being published in various trade journals and reports.

 

The main sections of the course include:

 

  • Shale Development Overview
  • Impacts to the Oil & Gas Industry
  • Cost-Benefit Analysis and Impacts in North America
  • Key Concepts and Terminology for Shale Development
  • Technical and Non-Technical Issues controlling the Global Pace of Development
  • Timing and Intensity of Future Shale Development around the World

 

Learning Level - Intermediate-to-Advanced

 

Course Length - 1 Day

 

Why Attend? - Misinformation about the key drivers and key ingredients to shale development are routinely being published, not only in newspapers and popular magazines, but also in professional business and financial journals, and even in technical evaluation reports. Those who attend the class will be better equipped to identify when an author is not providing reliable information but, more importantly, have a better idea of what truly drives shale development success and what impacts this development is having.

 

Who Should Attend? - This one-day course is intended for professionals wanting to increase their understanding of the current impacts and key drivers for shale development so that they can better understand and anticipate the impacts of future development in North America and around the world. The course was developed in response to the range of misinformation being printed in business and financial journals. A variety of technical courses have developed to inform those who are designing and constructing shale wells but very few offerings are available to those focused on the financial, management, service, or business development aspects of the industry.
