Horizontal well drilling, multistage stimulation and next generation advanced modeling tools are already enabling companies to harness unconventional oil and gas reserves around the world. Now, the Gulf region's unconventional deposits could be about to open up. Maximizing the potential of a massive resource base, which until recently was considered too impermeable to produce economically, will require the latest and best science to be applied. New technologies, including Mangrove software, are allowing a return to rigor in optimization capability through an accurate modeling of hydraulic fracturing geomechanical propagation and productive behavior in ultra-low permeability and organic source rocks.
