Unconventional reservoirs present many technical challenges to those charged with quantifying reservoir character and performance (Bust, Majid, Oletu & Worthington 2013). One of these challenges concerns the identification of net pay. The role of net pay in unconventional reservoirs continues to evolve as a design criterion for reservoir stimulation and well completions. Unlike conventional reservoirs, shale-gas development is not yet at the stage where longstanding net-pay protocols have been tried and tested. Therefore, any protocol has to be regarded as being at a pilot stage, especially in view of the complexity of shale-gas systems.Read more

With the focus on greenfield LNG, the oil price collapse, and the imminent arrival of US imports, it’s easy to think that all the action in Asia Pacific LNG is on the supply side. However, global gas markets these days are all about the value chain where developments at the burner tip are just as important as those at the wellhead.
This was the theme of a high profile event hosted by Gaffney, Cline & Associates on 2nd July in the sumptuous surroundings of the British Ambassador’s Residence in Tokyo, where the changes occurring in the Japanese Gas and Power markets, as a result of Prime Minister Abe’s restructuring initiatives, were discussed and debated. The seminar, co-hosted by elite global law firm Allen & Overy, focused on how customer anxiety in the face of high electricity prices, government concerns over global competitiveness and a major shift in LNG supply/demand balance was creating the same “Trinity for Change” that characterised periods of major transformation in the UK in the 1990s and in the US and Canada in the decade before that.Read more
