Unconventional Tight Gas in Ghadames-Berkine Basin
Monday, 12 September 2022, 8:00 a.m.–4:30 p.m. | Tunis, Tunisia
Who Should Attend
Geoscientists, Reservoir Engineers, Project Managers
In Tunisia-Algeria and Libya most of the hydrocarbon discovered so far within the Ghadames-Berkine basin were generated by the early Silurian hot shale world class ‘source rock’. The pervasive gas looked within this Silurian source rock or expelled during the Palaeozoic subsidence into the tight sand reservoirs is indeed an attractive play in this basin. In North Africa natural gas demand continues to grow, shale gas and tight sand development could help cut energy import bills and enhance energy security at least for Tunisia. Furthermore, Tunisia has an extensive pipeline network and detailed geological data but its shales and tight sand resources are not widely understood.
The aim of this one day course is to share knowledge about shale and tight gas play from exploration to development. This short course will be an opportunity for geoscientists and experts to discuss all the G&G aspects of the Silurian shales and tight sand and to compare lessons learned from field analogues. Best practice to de-risk the exploration and development of low permeability reservoirs will be exchanged and debated.
The second half of the day will be spent at ETAP’s core lab and devoted to cores observation and facies characterization of the Silurian shales and Ordovician tight sand.
