Overview of Shale Gas
This online engineering PDH course provides a basic definition of shale gas, explains how it is produced, and discusses the challenges associated with its production.
Natural gas production from “shale” formations (fine-grained sedimentary rocks with relatively low permeability that can be rich sources of petroleum and natural gas) is one of the most rapidly-growing trends in U.S. domestic energy exploration and production. In some cases, this fast expansion has resulted in natural gas drilling and production activity in parts of the country that have seen little or no activity of this type in the recent past.
This 2 PDH online course is intended for engineers who want to gain a basic understanding of Shale Gas.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding what is shale gas
- Knowing where is shale gas found in the United States
- Gaining insight into the importance of shale gas in the United States
- Learning about hydraulic fracturing
- Familiarizing with the challenges associated with shale gas production
