Allboutshale is a website dedicated to the un-conventional oil industry which aims to facilitate, develop and disseminate the scientific knowledge about the shale industry.
The website is being written and designed by Emanuel Martin a Petroleum Engineer graduated from the National University of Cuyo in Argentina.
Turn AllAboutShale.com into an interactive website with a high level of technical and scientific knowledge about the industry, which serves as a reference handbook for students, engineers, researchers, companies and Government agencies.
It's composed by four sections:
1-Shale Basic knowledge (Introduction):
What is a shale?
What is a hydraulic Fracturing?
Where is the gas stored?
How to evaluate a Shale Play?
U.S. Dry Shale Gas Production
U.S. Tight Oil Production
Argentina Shale Production
Canada Shale Production
China Shale Production
Stage I US shale plays
Barnett, Eagle Ford, Barnett-Woodford, Woodford , Marcellus, Fayetteville, Bakken, Antrim, Haynesville , Utica,+
Stage II: Canada, China and Argentina
Stage III: UK, Mexico, Libya, Russia, etc.
It’s organized into six sections:
Flow mechanics, Reservoir simulation, Fracture simulation, PVT, Adsortion, Others
Currently it has 41 papers specialized in the industry and a great list for upload.
Actually it’s a Job meta search between shale oil companies
Next: job posting for shale companies
Objective: to facilitate the labour insertion.
To date AllAboutShale.com has not received any economical support or donation so I'm developing it in my free time while I'm working as a tours seller.
1 ) Economic support:
Donations, Sponsors, Advertising
University Scholarship for the development of the project.
2) Access to US shale plays database (or Drillinginfo.com membership)
3) Donation of a laptop for web design
With the funds received I will stop working in the tours sale and will spend all my time in
Conclude stage 1 of the Shale Handbook: US Shale Plays.
Develop step 1 of the Tools section: Tangential momentun acomodation (α), Knundsen number (Kn), Apparent permeability (Kapp).
Continue building the papers library.
