GIS helps to understand prospectivity of shale plays
Authors: Roman Boros
Production of oil and gas from shale and tight formations from North America will transform the global energy landscape. Understanding the prospectivity of shale plays is critical for successful development decisions.
This paper will present an automated GIS approach for screening for prospective areas of shale plays globally, using the proved methodology and analogies from North America shale plays. Simplified GIS valuation model is based on multiple functions of ArcGIS Spatial Analyst.
