# Numerical Analysis of Transient Pressure Behaviors with Shale Gas MFHWs Interference

Numerical Analysis of Transient Pressure Behaviors with Shale Gas MFHWs Interference The model is numerically solved using the perpendicular bisection (PEBI) grids and the finite volume method. The accuracy of the model is verified by analyzing the measured pressure recovery data of one practical shale gas well and fitting the monitoring

An Analytical Flow Model for Heterogeneous Multi-Fractured Systems in Shale Gas Reservoirs Tang et al. [4] established a three-dimensional numerical model based on the construction of spatial discretization by the finite volume method. Wang [5] proposed a unified model for shale gas reservoirs based on discrete fracture networks to investigate shale

Numerical Study of Simultaneous Multiple Fracture Propagation in Changning Shale Gas Field A series of case studies were investigated to analyze the effects of engineering parameters on simultaneous multiple fracture propagation. The fracture spacing, perforating number, injection rate, fluid viscosity and number of fractures within one stage were considered. The simulation

PART 2 Analysis of Pressure Communication between the Austin Chalk and Eagle Ford Reservoirs during a Zipper Fracturing Operation Interpretation of Results The principal purpose of our study is to develop a conceptual model for the observed pressure communication between the two reservoirs (Eagle Ford and Austin Chalk). The estimated pressure acting on

Analysis of Pressure Communication between the Austin Chalk and Eagle Ford Reservoirs during a Zipper Fracturing Operation Our study presents field data collected in fall 2017 that measured the annular pressure changes that occurred in Austin Chalk wells during the zipper fracturing treatment of two new wells in the underlying Eagle

# Methods of Decline Curve Analysis for Shale Gas Reservoirs

Methods of Decline Curve Analysis for Shale Gas Reservoirs In this article, the eight most popular deterministic decline curve methods are reviewed: Arps, Logistic Growth Model, Power Law Exponential Model, Stretched Exponential Model, Duong Model, Extended Exponential Decline Model, and Fractural Decline Curve model. This review article is dedicated to summarizing

# Production performance analysis of fractured horizontal well in tight oil reservoir

There main focuses of this study are in two aspects: (1) find out effective methods to estimate OOIPSRV for an individual MFHW in tight oil reservoir when there is only production data available and (2) study the relationship between productivity and fracturing network parameters (ω and λ) so as to

# Analytical model for pressure and rate analysis of multi-fractured horizontal wells in tight gas reservoirs

Fractal porosity and permeability were employed to describe the heterogeneous distribution of the complex fracture network. The stress sensitivity of fractures was also considered in the model. Pedrosa substitution and perturbation method were applied to eliminate the nonlinearity of the model. Analytical solutions in the Laplace domain were obtained using

# Effects of stress-dependent permeability on well performance of ultra-low permeability oil reservoir in China

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. It is demonstrated that despite the stress-dependent permeability can have an adverse impact on production rate and recovery volume, it may be favorable for water

# An analytical equation for oil transport in nanopores of oil shale considering viscosity distribution

Introduction Great pressure is laid on the energy supply with the rapid rising population (Lee 2011; Sun et al. 2017a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i, j; Sheikholeslami et al. 2018a, b, c). Besides, the rapid depletion of conventional petroleum and natural gas resources aggravates the seriousness of the

# An embedded fracture modeling framework for simulation of hydraulic fracturing and shear stimulation

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 the governing mass balance equations. In this manner, as new tensile fractures nucleate and propagate subject to mechanical effects, numerical complexities associated with the introduction

This result has been further compared with the help of MATLAB so as to obtain a complete pressure-derived model. The result shows the applicability of this in the real-life projects where it is difficult to model the fractures and obtain the flow rate with them in fractures and how to

# A Comprehensive Prediction Model of Hydraulic Extended-Reach Limit Considering the Allowable Range of Drilling Fluid Flow Rate in Horizontal Drilling

Results show that when Qmin ≤Qr ≤Qmax (Case I), Lh depends both on horizontal-section limit based on rated pump pressure (Lh1 ) and horizontal-section limit based on rated pump power (Lh2 ); when Qmin  < Q max  < Qr (Case II), Lh is exclusively controlled by Lh1; while Lh is only determined by

# Influence of gas transport mechanisms on the productivity of multi-stage fractured horizontal wells in shale gas reservoirs

The existence of an adsorption layer on the nanopore surfaces reduces the effective pore radius and the effective porosity, resulting in low production from fractured horizontal wells. With a decrease in the pore radius, considering the adsorption layer, the production reduction rate increases. When the pore radius is less than

# Investigation of shale gas microflow with the Lattice Boltzmann method

The results show that net desorption, diffusion, and slip flow are very sensitive to the pore scale. Pore pressure also plays an important role in mass fluxes of gas. Temperature variations only cause small changes in mass fluxes. The Lattice Boltzmann method can be used to study the flow field
