Pre-requisites: Undergraduate level knowledge of petroleum geology, petrophysics, formation evaluation, and reservoir engineering.



Course Description
This course is aimed to provide a review of unconventional reservoirs– such as tight sands, coalbed methane, shales, and gas hydrates –an overview of methods used to characterize and evaluate these resources. The objective is to familiarize students with the unique aspects of unconventional reservoirs and to develop a thorough understanding and knowledge of techniques for evaluation of unconventional reservoirs. 


Hamid Emami-Meybodi Ph.D.
Dr. Hamid Emami-Meybodi is assistant professor of petroleum and natural gas engineering in the Department of Energy and Mineral Engineering at the Pennsylvania State University. He holds a Ph.D. in petroleum engineering from the University of Calgary (Canada). His research focus is on the mathematical modeling of fluid flow and transport phenomena in porous media, especially on hydrocarbon recovery from unconventional reservoirs and CO2 storage in geological formations. He has conducted research on solutal and thermal natural convection, rate transient analysis, hydraulic fracturing, asphaltene precipitation, polymer/water flooding, and solvent injection in shale reservoirs. He is currently in charge of the graduate course in unconventional reservoir engineering at the Penn State University.
