This program is designed to provide a foundation that can shorten employees' entry time frame into the shale industry by identifying key terminology and opportunities for integration across operations. It will also provide a broad understanding of current practices in shale development.
Employees with experience will increase their knowledge by viewing development across multiple operators and identifying answers to key shale development questions posed by a concerned public. Service and support companies will learn about potential opportunities to integrate their business strengths into the oil and gas supply chain.
The course includes information about shale economics, geology, leasing, drilling practices, well construction, reservoir stimulation, well completion, production, and workforce, all of which are presented with real world experience.
