U.S.-China Shale Gas Training Program Workshop #1: Resource Characterization and Assessment

Dates: April 22-23, 2013

Location: Chengdu, China

USTDA is funding the U.S.-China Shale Gas Training Program to introduce Chinese energy sector officials and project sponsors to U.S. shale gas best practices, policies and technologies. USTDA is partnering with China’s National Energy Administration (NEA) to conduct the Program along with the U.S. Departments of Energy, State, and Commerce. The Program includes a series of four workshops in China over a 20 month period.

The Resource Characterization and Assessment Workshop will provide a fundamental understanding of the science and practical applications of methods and technologies to characterize shale gas formations and assess their potential. This workshop is designed to introduce the U.S. firms selling technology and expertise needed to develop this emerging market to Chinese policy makers and buyers. 80 Chinese shale gas decision makers from national and provincial government, state-owned enterprises and the 16 new shale gas license winners will attend the workshop for interactive, technical discussions on shale gas resource characterization and assessment case studies, practical issues, equipment, and services. The two day agenda will include presentation of U.S. case studies, as well as opportunities for companies to host an exhibit and/or participate in one-on-one meetings with potential buyers.

If you are interested in participating in the workshop or for more information, contact Trevor Smith at the Gas Technology Institute at or (847) 768-0795.
