Oil and Natural Gas - Resource Play Essentials:
The first decade
of the 21st Century saw the emergence of large, commercially viable and
previously untapped unconventional crude oil and natural gas reserves
onto the world stage. 2007 through 2010 saw the creation of dozens of
public and private oil and gas companies within the Canadian Oil Patch
whose sole purpose was to find and develop unconventional oil and gas
reserves. The intense competition for leases, drilling, production, evaluation
and service equipment caused costs to skyrocket to levels previously unseen
in the Canadian and global Oil and Gas Industry. Large amounts of capital,
resources and personnel were funnelled into resource plays. These unconventional
oil and natural gas plays have forever changed the economics of the oil
and gas industry. GeoHistory's Unconventional Oil and Gas - Resource Play
Essentials course provides participants with a working overview of unconventional
oil and natural gas. Participants learn how resource plays are identified,
evaluated and produced and about the economic and environmental impact
of resource plays both within Canada and around the world.
This oil and gas
industry training course is designed for:
