Purpose and Scope
Gas and oil-bearing shales/mudstones are generally organically-rich, fine-grained sedimentary rocks capable of producing hydrocarbons upon artificial fracturing. The most common challenges are to identify the economically viable zones for production and to define optimal stimulation methods for these intervals.
This workshop will emphasize lessons learned from operators and researchers associated with the Oklahoma shale gas and oil exploration and development arena for thevarious regions in Oklahoma with particular emphasis on the Caney, Goddard and Woodford Shales. Presentations will focus on the geologic, petrophysical, geochemical, petrographic, mineralogical, reservoir characterization and modeling, and engineering factors – including sequence stratigraphy, diagenesis, palynological analysis, image and data analysis - that are beneficial for commercial production.
