There has been a revolution in oil and gas exploration, exploitation, and development as a consequence of the boom of unconventional play production. Currently, there are regions where tight oil and shale gas production has exceeded that of conventional reservoirs. It has been proposed that the global potential for such systems can be significantly expanded. However, many early estimates of resource potential have proven to be erroneous indicating that there is a need for improved understanding of these potential resource plays. The objective of Unconventional Resources is to provide a means to report on the scientific and technologic advances associated with the known or proposed unconventional resource plays worldwide. The journal will span the geologic, geophysical, and engineering aspects of all unconventional resource opportunities including tight gas (tight sandstones and carbonates, shales and mudstones, and coal bed methane) and tight oil (shales and sandstones) plays, gas hydrates, and oil shales. Unconventional Resources welcomes original research articles, review articles, short communications and policy briefs.
