The significance of unconventional oil and gas resources lies in their ability to meet growing energy demands, stimulate economic growth, and drive technological innovation. Commercial advantages of unconventional oil and gas resources are substantial, contributing to energy security, economic prosperity, and geopolitical stability on both national and global scales. Advancements in technology continue to drive innovation and improve the efficiency, safety, and environmental performance of unconventional oil and gas development.

This course will help participants to enhance their Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources Management & Monitoring skills. It will cover an interdisciplinary synergistic approach to efficient Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources Management, which is detailed to optimize profitability. You will also learn how technology or function contributes to the plan and how checks and balances are developed.


By completing the Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources Course, the attendees should be acquainted with:

  • Overview of tight reservoirs as an unconventional resource
  • Unconventional Resources Classification and Assessment, and Geochemistry Aspects and Petrophysical Aspects
  • Heavy oil and Extra Heavy Oil Reservoirs
  • Stimulation Treatment and Reservoir Engineering Tools
  • New Technology and Commercial Evaluation Overview
  • Field development and field operating plans to optimize profitability
  • Efficient monitoring of reservoir performance
  • Identifying and acquiring critical data, data acquisition, and analysis
  • Maximizing economic recovery and minimizing capital investment, risk, and operating expenses
  • Various case histories and analysis
  • Importance of reservoir characterization and drilling and operating plans


This training course is useful for various professionals working with reservoir management and simulations, including Production and operations engineers, geologists, geophysicists, managers, experienced technicians, and service company personnel.


Our highly practical experiential learning method is results-oriented based on an adult learning concept. The programme will be interactive and practical. It uses a blended environment of presentations, workshops, group work, practical exercises, field application, case studies, analysis and general discussion. Each day will end with time to produce an action plan for delegates’ continuing development.

Pre & Post course assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of this training.
