Tight Rock Analysis Primer Course

Learn how a comprehensive evaluation of tight gas shale plays help accurately characterize your reservoir and optimize completions.

The TRA tight rock analysis primer course provides insight on how tight rock analysis can be used to predict gas productivity potential, analyze fracture containment, determine the best drilling and completion strategies, and map productive units across the basin using wireline logs.

This one-day course takes place at our training facilities or at the client’s location of choice, and is taught by leading rock mechanics experts.
