Wellbore Stability in Oil and Gas Drilling with Chemical-Mechanical Coupling

Wellbore Stability in Oil and Gas Drilling with Chemical Mechanical Coupling

The relationships between shale mechanical parameters and the water content are established. The wellbore stability model chemical-mechanical coupling is obtained based on the experimental results. Under the action of drilling fluid, hydration makes the shale formation softened and produced the swelling strain after drilling. This will lead to the collapse

Modeling adsorption with lattice Boltzmann equation

Here we present and validate a novel lattice Boltzmann model incorporating both adsorbate-adsorbate and adsorbate-adsorbent interactions with hydrodynamics which, for the first time, allows adsorption to be computed with real-life details.

Unconventional Shale Reservoir’s Property Estimation through Modeling, Case Studies of Australian Shale

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.
