Shale Basic Knowledge

shale formation modeling in a simulation through information acquired with seismic and well logs.

How to evaluate a shale play? Part B

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

is required to know the values of porosity, water saturation, permeability, reservoir volume and the volumetric factor of the gas or oil; the Total Organic Carbon (TOC), thermal maturity, depositional environment, mineralogical composition and mechanical properties.

How to evaluate a shale play? Part A

How to evaluate a shale play? Part A Emanuel Martin Introduction Shale formations constitute 60% of the rocks that make up the Earth's crust being only a small group

Reservoir Simulation

In this approach, a multi-fractured horizontal gas well in a shale formation is divided into four zones. Shale formation between each pair of hydraulic fractures consists of four zones: compacted zone around well-bore (1), shale matrix (2), induced fractures (3) and main hydraulic fractures (4). The main contribution of this study is considering varying permeability for each specific zone implemented in the mathematical presentation of gas flow in shale.

We build a compositional reservoir model to investigate the effects of complex fracture geometries on performance of CO2 Huff-n-Puff and CO2 continuous injection. The results confirm that the appropriate modelling of the fracture geometry plays a critical role in the estimation of the incremental oil recovery.
