Low-cost method increases lesser known shale formations prospectivity Don Timko, Lincoln Schick, Jim Sorrells

Subject(s): Costos de Producción | Ingeniería de Petróleos | Precios del gas | Precios del petróleo In: Oil & gas journal Vol.113, No.2, 2015: páginas 48-55Abstract: Less prominent shales such as the Jackson have possible commercial value if their sweet spots can be successfully identified. The method for doing so described in this article can be completed at relatively low cost. Proof of the value of these lesser known shale formations can only come through testing. Especially where essentially no chemical data are available as to kerogen and total organic compound levels and geologic maturity measurements. With oil and gas prices down, operators, particularly independents, must strive to keep costs down to maintain value.

Less prominent shales such as the Jackson have possible commercial value if their sweet spots can be successfully identified. The method for doing so described in this article can be completed at relatively low cost. Proof of the value of these lesser known shale formations can only come through testing. Especially where essentially no chemical data are available as to kerogen and total organic compound levels and geologic maturity measurements. With oil and gas prices down, operators, particularly independents, must strive to keep costs down to maintain value.
