Talk Description
Shale gas exploration outside the US needs a different approach.

The lack of well information, differing land ownership issues and area scale, aside from identifying initial areas of interest, all present problems and require the need to step out to a regional level, then work inwards.

Public domain land gravity datasets across the UK and Poland (two areas where unconventional exploration is establishing itself) provide an excellent framework to regional understanding and offer a complimentary tool to focus areas of interest and seismic planning.

Moving from regional to block scale, high resolution (airborne or land) gravity and FTG datasets offer detailed information on fault mapping and structural control. The information can be obtained quickly and at low cost. With integration of well and seismic data the interpretation can be carried through to detailed geological modelling, understanding stress/strain relationships and well planning.
