Argentina Shale Production 2017

The unconventional oil and gas production in the Argentine Republic is concentrated in the Neuquén Province from where tight and shale formations are exploited being Vaca Muerta, Los Molles and Lajas the main formations of interest. The shale gas production reached in August 2017 the 37,810Kboe per day and the shale oil production reached the 37,909kBbl/day in the same month, showing an increment of 18,5% for the gas and 34% for the oil production compared with August 2016.

Main exploitation areas: The Neuquén Province is divided into 170 areas or blocks for the hydrocarbons exploration and production of which 56 block are currently in tender process for the production of unconventional hydrocarbons. By increasing the depth in all of these 56 blocks we are finding the shale formations: Vaca

Behavior of Arps Equation in Shale Plays

Application the Arps method to shale Plays

Behavior of Arps Equation in Shale Plays Emanuel Martin Decline curves analysis through the Arps method has been historically the tool more used to make wells reserves forecast, Due to its simplicity and low cost. The method consist in the graphic extrapolation of the production from the historical production in a semi-log graph

Excel Worksheet to Calculate the Permeability in Shale Gas Fields

With this we can calculate and view in a fast, simple and immediate as varies the Knudsen number and the apparent permeabilities for the models presented in the previous post through the introduction of petrophysical parameters of our field. The calculations are carried out and plotted for a range of pressures comprised between 1psi to 15000psi.

Excel Worksheet to Calculate the Permeability in Shale Gas Fields In this article I will leave them and I'll explain the file (worksheet) of Excel with which I did the calculations and graphs of the paper "Flow Mechanics in Shale Gas". With this we can calculate and view in a fast,

FLOW MECHANICS IN SHALE GAS Emanuel Martin Introduction: When analyzing the flow production data in a shale play notice that these measures are higher than those predicted by Darcy’s Law with which they were calculated. Based on that we might ask ourselves why is the production of gas higher than expected? Is it

BARNETT TECHNICAL INFORMATION Emanuel Martin INTRODUCTION Barnett Field in Texas is the pioneer in the shale gas production in United States. Since 1980 the Mitchell Energy Company began with pilot proofs for the production of gas and years later in 2003 by combining the horizontal wells with multiple fractures they achieve his extraction

Argentina Shale Production

Vaca Muerta Shale, the Best in the World.

Argentina Shale Production: Emanuel Martin Argentina is one of the four shale producers on a commercial scale in the world together with the United States, Canada and China. The main activity is located in the Neuquen Basin where the interest formations are Vaca Muerta and Los Molles. In addition, Argentina has other

How to evaluate a shale play? Part B

Unconventional fields only produce hydrocarbons cost-effectively through stimulation treatments to large-scale, due to this, the determination of the mechanical properties of the formation and its variation along the same recover a greater importance in these "reservoirs" since these allow us to determine the degree of fracturability of the formation, select the optimal orientation of the wells and designing the fracture treatment. .shale formation modeling in a simulation through information acquired with seismic and well logs.

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 to evaluate, Kerogen, Total Organic Content (TOC), Organic Matter Classification, Thermal Maturity Determination, Depositional environment, facies characterization and Mineralogical composition. Now we're going to develop: Mechanical

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 of them containers of hydrocarbons. The necessary conditions to ensure that these rocks have generated and stored oil or gas is that they have abundant
