This 2-day course acquaints participants with the basics of oil and gas shale
evaluation and current shale selection, well completion, fracturing, and
production technologies for shale reservoirs. The interactive format includes
field data, current approaches and use of technologies suited for shale
developments. Technologies include logging, frac interval selection, multi-stage
fracturing in horizontal wells, and a summary of field data from many shale
plays. Topics include:

  • Candidate selection criteria to identify shale “sweet spots”
  • Complex fractures and role of geomechanics
  • Well orientation, optimum length and perf cluster design
  • Optimizing well completions and stimulations
  • Fracturing risk estimation: strengths and areas to improve
  • Water sources, treatment, reuse and disposal
  • Predicting production, estimating decline and well start-up suggestions
  • Surface equipment and production operations


Why You Should Attend

The technology for recovering oil and gas reserves from shale is changing the
face of the industry worldwide. If shale reserves are part of your portfolio,
this course is for you.   

Who Should Attend

This course is for all well completion and production engineers, managers and
geologists working with shale reserves.
