Meetings

UnCon12: UnCon Project 12th National Coordinators Meeting and Workshop

Oct. 02, 2018 - Oct. 04, 2018, Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

The CCOP-KIGAM-KNOC project for the shale energy resource assessment (UnCon Project Phase II) has been launched in April 2018 in Bangkok Thailand, followed by UnCon11 on 10-12 July 2018 in Chongqing, China, where each country presented the shale volume calculation they have performed for respective selected basin. The CCOP Technical Secretariat in cooperation with the Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources (KIGAM), Department of Mineral and Geoscience Malaysia (JMG) and PETRONAS conducted the UnCon12 on 2-4 October 2018 in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. The objective of UnCon12 is to update the shale volume calculations, which were handled in the UnCon11, for the assessment of potential shale-gas and shale-oil resources in the CCOP region. The improved calculation of the shale volume was presented and discussed at the meeting to step forward to the next calculation of the gas or oil amounts in the shale volume. In addition, all participants in the UnCon12 had the opportunity to learn the Monte Carlo simulation, which is required to assess the shale energy resources.

UnCon11: UnCon Project 11th National Coordinators Meeting and Workshop

Jul. 10, 2018 - Jul. 12, 2018, Chongqing, China

The CCOP-KIGAM project for the shale energy resource assessment (UnCon Project Phase II) has been launched in April 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand. Accordingly, the CCOP Technical Secretariat in cooperation with the Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources (KIGAM) and China Geological Survey (CGS) conducted the UnCon11 on 10-12 July 2018 in Chongqing, China. The objective of UnCon11 is to present and discuss about the shale volume calculation that each country has been performing for the selected basin. The shale volume calculation was agreed at the meeting after discussion. In addition, the experience of shale gas and shale oil development were shared with participants by the resource persons from China and Japan.  All participants had the opportunity of visiting the shale gas production site in the Fuling field, the Sichuan Basin, China.

UnCon10: UnCon Project 10th National Coordinators Meeting and Workshop

Apr. 24, 2018 - Apr. 26, 2018, Bangkok, Thailand

The UnCon Project 10th National Coordinators Meeting and Workshop (UnCon10) on 24-26 April 2018 at Sukosol Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand was organized to launch the Phase II of the CCOP-KIGAM Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources Project.  The second phase of the UnCon project focuses on the calculation and assessment of the shale energy resources for the already identified potentially-prospective shale energy basins.  

UCM6: UC Project 6th National Coordinators Meeting and Workshop 6

Aug. 16, 2016 - Aug. 18, 2016, Da Nang City, Vietnam

UCM6 was conducted by CCOP Technical Secretariat in cooperation with Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources (KIGAM) and Vietnam Petroleum Institute (VPI) in Danang City, Vietnam.  The objectives is to have an enhanced understanding on the Guideline Methodology for the assessment of oil and gas shale resources - looking into the assessment parameters and work flow.  UCM6  focused on shale basin mapping and mineral quantification analysis.

UCM5: UC Project 5th National Coordinators Meeting and Workshop

May. 10, 2016 - May. 12, 2016, Vientiane, Lao-PDR

 

UCM5 was conducted by CCOP Technical Secretariat in cooperation with KIGAM and LAO-PDR  Department of Geology and Mineral Resources in Vientiane on 10-12 May 2016.  This is a follow up meeting/workshop to enhanced the understanding of the Guideline methodology for the assessment of oil and gas shale resources.  The workshop  focused on the assessment parameters, work flow, data, and best practices. Discussions on the shale map development was also thoroughly covered.  A field work to visit shale outcrops in the vicinity of Vientiane was also organized.

UCM4: UC Project 4th National Coordinators Meeting and Workshop

Mar. 07, 2016 - Mar. 08, 2016, Siem Reap, Cambodia

UCM4 was conducted by CCOP Technical Secretariat in cooperation with KIGAM and Cambodia's General Department of Petroleum in Siem Reap as one of the associated Meetings of the 66th CCOP Steering Committee Meeting.  UCM4  provided an opportunity for the national coordinators to share their experiences,  report the progress of their assessment of shale oil/gas resources and also re-examine the goals, objectives and implementation of the Project. The results of the shale analysis conducted by KIGAM was presented and throughly discussed at the Meeting.

UCM3: UC Project 3rd National Coordinators Meeting and Workshop

Sep. 22, 2015 - Sep. 24, 2015, Chiangmai, Thailand

UCM3 was conducted by CCOP Technical Secretariat in cooperation with Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources (KIGAM) and Department of Mineral Fuels, Thailand in Chiangmai, Thailand on 22-24 September 2015.  The objectives are to use a geology-based assessment methodology to assess the potential of oil and gas shale resources in the CCOP basins.  The workshop sessions provided an opportunity to looked deeper into the various methodologies worldwide that are used in the shale energy resource assessment and agreed on the methodology that will be used as Guideline for CCOP member countries.

UCM2: UC Project 2nd National Coordinators Meeting / Workshop and Launching of the CCOP - KIGAM Unconventional Oil Gas Resources (UC) Project

Jun. 09, 2015 - Jun. 12, 2015, Gyeongju, Korea

The CCOP Technical Secretariat in cooperation with KIGAM successfully launched the UC Project last 9 June 2015 in Gyeongju, Korea.  The event was attended by more than 100 participants from various Korean governmental organizations, oil and gas companies, academic institutions, and CCOP member countries.  Right after the UC Project launching, a 2-day workshop was conducted focused on Methodologies on the assessment of gas and oil shale resources with case studies mostly from the experiences of USGS.  To cap the event, a 1-day field work was organized by KIGAM to inspect some outcrops and cultural heritage sites in Gyeongju and Pohang.
