Various exploration techniques for locating hydrocarbon reservoirs and estimating their sizes is discussed.
This multidisciplinary course addresses different topics in exploration workflow in implemented in the petroleum industry for oil and gas discovery.

I personally don't know what the real story is, but from the standpoint of oil and gas production, fracking is thus far proving to be quite valuable.
Despite the energy benefits, fracking as a practice is facing legal and regulatory opposition in the United States, which could result in cessation of the practice.
