Unconventional Resources: What do we know and what is the road ahead?

In recent years, with the increase in energy demand and the need for cleaner fuel, unconventional resources have regained their importance globally. Due to the complexity of these resources, production can be a challenge. An array of geophysical technologies and integration can help in exploration and production of these resources.

At this workshop we will comprehensively cover the subsurface technologies related to unconventional resources. Technologies will span from exploration, to reservoir characterization, to rock properties, to seismic and nonseismic surface and borehole surveillance methods (such as microseismic, surface deformation, gravity and electrical methods). Keynote speakers will address the global challenges related to these resources and production mechanisms to set the workshop framework.
