About the Course
The GIAN Course on "Applicability of Rock Physics and Rock Mechanics in Shale Reservoirs" will be held in Indian Institute of Technology – Roorkee, Uttarakhand, India during July 9 – 13, 2018. The key aspect of this course will be to understand potential interpretation pitfalls in using standard rockphysics models in shales.
