Course description

Unconventional Resource and Reserve Evaluation - URRE

This five-day advanced course is designed to expose attendees to the understanding and application of the latest approaches, techniques and requirements being applied to reserves evaluation within unconventional resources. Particular focus is given to actions and methodologies that are necessary to enhance the reserve categorization. Discussion and class examples will emphasize the testing protocols necessary within the exploration, appraisal and at development phases of the resource life cycle. The course is based around the Petroleum Reserve Management System (PRMS) and variations needed to conform to other national standards such as the SEC, NI-51, SORP, NPD, Chinese, as well as other standards is taught as a stand-alone module. A majority of the offering is focused on shale oil and shale gas resources, with selected coverage of tight gas, coalbed methane and coal seam gas plays also being included depending on participant interest.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Reservoir engineers and geoscientists working in integrated teams in unconventional assessments. Managerial staff requiring an understanding of unconventional reservoir reserve and resource evaluation standards will also benefit.
