SEG Shale Gas Technology Forum:
Serving the Society's global membership and promoting innovative technology
In 2010, the People's Republic of China set a national goal to produce 8-12% of its natural gas from shale-gas resources by 2020. In response, SEG assembled more than 300 industry leaders representing seven different countries at this year's SEG Shale Gas Technology Forum, which took place in March in Chengdu, Sichuan, China.

Summer Research Workshop 2011
Towards a Full Integration from Geosciences to Reservoir Simulation
The multi-disciplinary integration of geosciences has made a lot of progress in the last decade, but this progress is often limited. This workshop, taking place in Trieste, Italy, 1-2 September 2011, aims to define the state of the art in this integration process. Papers will include topics of reservoir simulation of different scenarios based on different data availability as a validation tool and feedback for further tuning.
