Lessons Learned from Unconventional Gas Plays
Unconventional gas is increasingly important in global energy supply mix 
Two play types for tight sandstone gas plays in Rocky Mountains (Shanley)
Widespread producing complexes (true resource plays) where trap definition is lessimportant than focus on pilot development projects & establishing an economic threshold 
Unconventional reservoir plays where trap definition is critical and development areasare more restricted (conventional trap plays)
Both involve large gas volumes & require a realistic assessment of charge potential but require different approaches for commercial success
Drilling and fracturing methods differ & are critically important 
Seismic is fundamental 
Geology matters!
