Vail Cascade Resort, 1300 Westhaven Drive, Vail, Colorado 81657


To encourage a free exchange of cross-disciplinary discussion among leading scientific and engineering experts leading to improved exploration models and development and completion strategies required to exploit the vast North American tight gas sand potential. Particular emphasis will be placed on:

    • Evaluating current models of tight gas, their strengths and limitations
    • Understanding tight gas sand petroleum systems including the origin and evolution of abnormal pressure
    • Reservoir properties and evaluation
    • Exploration and development techniques, best practices and case histories
    • Resource appraisal methodologies, uncertainties and policy implications
