Unconventional Oil and Gas Resource Engineering provides managers and engineers with the foundation and framework necessary to understand unconventional activity and the challenges associated with drilling these more complex wells. It includes tactics on how to maximize resources to their fullest potential, updating engineers and senior decision-makers on how to make more accurate plans for extraction techniques and well design, understand the various types of unconventional resources, exploit sweet spots, amplify volume through appropriate well analysis tests and design strategies, and explain how conventional methods have changed.
