Better reservoir knowledge and increasingly sophisticated technologies make the production of unconventional resources economically viable and more efficient. This efficiency is bringing shale reservoirs, tight gas and oil, and coalbed methane into the reach of more companies around the world.
Organically rich shale gas and liquid reservoirs, once ignored by operators seeking easier plays and faster returns on investments, are attracting increasing attention as potential sources of significant natural gas and liquid reserves.
Advanced stimulation, reservoir characterization, and drilling technologies are driving efficiencies and production improvement.
The unique cleated structure and dual gas storage mechanism of coal deposits necessitate specialized technologies for successful production of coalbed methane, an increasing component of global natural gas production.
Seismic surveys suggest gas hydrate accumulations are abundant in offshore areas around the world and prevalent under permafrost in some arctic regions.
Seismic data play an important role in microseismic and stimulation modeling, seismic guided drilling to place the wellbore in the reservoir sweet spot, and borehole seismic interpretation.
Case studies, technical papers, and industry articles showing the applicability of our services and products in unconventional reservoirs are presented by specific basin and play.
