HOW TO EVALUATE A SHALE PLAY? Part B Emanuel Martin In the first part of “HOW TO EVALUATE A SHALE PLAY?" we've developed: Shale play features, Main properties
Several analytical simulations under the conditions of constant wellbore flowing pressure were performed to quantitatively assess the impact of stress sensitivity on single well performance.
We study the impact on fracture propagation (in both magnitude and direction) due to anisotropies induced by various parameters, namely ultimate tensile strength, Young’s modulus,
As fluid is exchanged between the two domains, conservation of mass is guaranteed through a coupling term that appears as a simple source term in
