EAGE/SPE Joint Workshop 2017. Shale science: Prospecting & Development

The European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) and the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) invite you to take part in the 8th joint annual research workshop in Moscow. 2017-year topic will be: Shale science: Prospecting & Development. The workshop will be held in Moscow, Russia, from 10 April to 11 April 2017.

Workshop overview

Nowadays scientific and technological progress provides a great opportunity for commercially efficient development of unconventional hydrocarbon reserves including shale oil.

According to expert estimates, Russia has great and unique potential for shale oil production. Specific genesis and structure of such deposits requires comprehensive analysis and synthesis based on various geological and geophysical information obtained.

Efficient and consistent geological-geophysical models should be based on reciprocal integration of different-scale studies — from micro level of rock structure to seismic and basin investigation.

Workshop goal

  • Discuss the topical questions and recent achievements for the workshop issue
  • Exchange experience by experts in a broad range of geological-geophysical areas and creating of basics for close collaboration
  • Outline the priority directions in the study and developing of unconventional hydrocarbon reserves


  1. Regional geology and basin modeling
  2. Prospecting technologies 
  3. Reservoir model
  4. Development technologies and Geomechanics 
  5. Geological models and Methods for Estimating Resources and Reserves
