Since the year 2000, unconventional shale plays have contributed greatly to the global oil and gas supply, particularly in the United States. Understanding and managing these resources requires a unique understanding about the geology, geophysics, rock physics, and rock mechanics of each reservoir in a seamless interdisciplinary approach. Equally important, advanced technologies in seismic and microseismic processing enable professionals to map and identify the hydrocarbon resource and establish the optimum pathways for production.
