Now Available: International Workshop Proceedings – Indian Shale Oil and Gas Exploration (January 2016)


EGI is pleased to offer access to International Workshop Proceedings – Indian Shale Oil and Gas Exploration, a review of the one-day workshop on Indian Shale Oil and Gas Exploration, conducted in conjunction with the International Conference on Geosciences and Environment and the 32nd Annual Convention of the Indian Association of Sedimentologists (IAS), on January 8, 2016, at Annamalai University, Tamil Nadu (India). The workshop was aimed at bringing together state-of-the-art knowledge from multiple research consortia sourced through a long-term collaboration between three premier university-based shale research centers: the Institute of Energy Research and Training (IERT), University of Jammu, India; the Energy & Geoscience Institute (EGI), University of Utah, USA; and the Maghreb Petroleum Research Group (MPRG), University College London (UCL), UK. Geoscientists from two national (ONGC and GSPC) and two international (ENI and Shell) oil and gas E&P companies, along with researchers and academicians from nine institutions actively involved in shale resources exploration in India, presented their research.

EGI congratulates the volume’s Editors, Drs. Mateen Hafiz (IERT, University of Jammu, India), Sudeep Kanungo (EGI), Naveen Hakhoo (IERT, University of Jammu, India), and Manas Pathak (EGI), for the release of this formidable volume and their extraordinary efforts to promote research collaboration in India through valuable workshops with the view to helping India to promote and develop its shale program.
