Course description

EMI's Intro to Shale Gas and Tight Oil

The dramatic increase in shale gas and tight oil production/reserves is changing the global energy market forever. The U.S.A. is leading the way in the world for development of previously untapped potential from a variety of domestic basins including the Permian Basin which is achieving a renaissance overflow of production with pipeline capacity striving to accommodate leading to new super port construction in Corpus Christi, TX for increasing LNG and oil exports globally.

Intro to Shale Gas & Tight Oil course will explore new play areas not only in North America but worldwide, including evolving technology, environmental concerns and market and geopolitical relationships. The Bakken, Eagle Ford, Marcellus, Utica producing formations have become well-known. Other countries like China, Argentina, Canada are seeking to emulate unconventional success utilizing horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing as technological efficiencies continue to be found lowering break-even points.

It is crucial for current energy professionals to appreciate the magnitude of the potential and the mode of development for these plays because they are the future for our energy-hungry world. The U.S.A. is now the swing-producer for the world with rising exports of oil and gas usurping the Mideast. Watch for new pricing mechanisms to be established.

This course is worth 13 CPE credits and 6 EMI credits.
