E-221 - Hydrocarbons in Unconventional Settings (the Geology Perspective)

3 jours BAS/UNCONV
  • Geologists, geophysicists, engineers, managers, E&P professionals in charge of basin exploration and prospect evaluation
  • E&P professionals involved in production of unconventional hydrocarbons
  • To provide, through a “petroleum system” approach, a general introduction to various non-conventional hydrocarbons, focused solely on a consistent geological rationale to the different potentially producing objectives
  • To understand the geological rationale of unconventional resources as an extension of the petroleum system concept
  • To acquire a general knowledge of all unconventional resources
  • To understand what is at stake in this recent domain and future potential impacts
Les + pédagogiques
  • Examples from all over the world commented by an expert
  • Interactive discussions
