Gas Shale Exploration & Exploitation (2011-2013)

Gas Shale Exploration & Exploitation (2011-2013)

Gas Shale Exploration & Exploitation” aims to establish a modelling work-flow for quantitative prediction of shale gas occurrences and their quality (sweet spot identification).

The project will contribute to volumetric and qualitative prediction of gas shale by characterizing and quantifying the inorganic and organic matter content, thermal maturity, amount of generated hydrocarbons, shale properties and natural fracture development on a basin scale. The project will contribute to sustainable and environmentally compatible exploration of this energy source.
