|Gas Reservoir Management - GRM|
|Evaluating and Developing Shale Resources - SRE|
|Coalbed Methane Reservoirs: Advanced Analysis Techniques - CMR|
|Coalbed Methane - CBM|
Discipline: Reservoir Engineering
Duration: 2 days
Instructor(s): Jeffrey (Jeff) Aldrich, Brandy Butler, Timothy Hower, MHA Petroleum Consultants
This two-day CBM course is designed to help attendees understand CBM production and assess CBM exploration and development opportunities. A set of course notes is provided, including a CD of Excel spreadsheets suitable for evaluating CBM gas in place and producability. Additional details can be added in any of the topics listed below for in-house presentations. This will extend the course from the current two-day public format to three or more days.
"I like how everything was explained in order to understand the basics so we can learn more complex information. I think the quality of the course is very good so I'll be glad to take another one of unconventional resources." - Participant, Bogota
"I think it was very well covered and the visit to the CBM site was a good aspect for the course." - Geo Chemist, Mexico
Technical and managerial staff who need an understanding of coalbed methane (CBM) production and CBM exploration and development opportunities
