Feasibility Studies for Shale Resources Assessment and Evaluation (of Basin, Play, Field, Acreage or Lease)

Field Development Planning (FDP)


The high-level and seasoned consultants of A&A Consulting Team have been working on shale resources asessment and evaluation projects for more than fifteen years, and we can conduct state-of-the-art feasibility studies for your company's shale resources around the world. 

A&A Consulting Team’s shale resources assessment and evaluation capabilities include analyzing the geological data, mapping the reservoir parameters, estimating the resource potential, and analyzing the production performance. This work can be carried out either at basin or play level or on acreage basis (composed of various leases on a portfolio made of a number of areas). We can consolidate all the field studies, generate a notional field development plan (FDP), and provide the reserves and economic value of the field.  

The depth and breadth of technical and economic expertise of A&A Consulting Team will be reflected in a comprehensive report of our investigation of your company’s shale resources assessment and evaluation project. The report will be customized to meet your company requirements, and, depending upon the type and amount of the project data provided to us for investigation, our feasibility report could include the following:
