ShaleScience 2014


When: 9-10 June, 2014

Where: Copernicus Science Centre in Warsaw ul. Wybrzeże Kościuszkowskie 20



The ShaleScience Conference is an international forum of scientific cooperation, aimed at introducing the latest developments in science and technology to the exploration of and production from unconventional hydrocarbon deposits in Poland.

During the previous editions of ShaleScience, the participants defined the key factors determining the correct quality assessment of shale rock formation characteristics, and worked out an accurate picture of key parameters that impact the profitability of production from unconventional deposits, including reservoir quality (RQ) and completion quality (CQ). During the 3rd Shale Science Conference, the discussion will concentrate on the comparison of Polish Lower Paleozoic geological formations with their analogues, occurring infrequently in North America. The main focus of the conference will be the application of a new approach to designing and performing stimulation in moderate-quality reservoirs. The conclusions pertaining to the evolution of the mental picture of shale reservoir stimulation in local geological conditions will be based on the results from the first exploration operations carried out in Poland in the years 2009-2014.

ShaleScience 2014 topics:

• Geology of Polish Lower Paleozoic Shales – Polish and American Experiences
• Drilling and Completing Wells in Moderate-Quality Shale Reservoirs
• Environmental Challenges for Hydraulic Fracturing
