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

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 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
