Micro/Nano-pore Network Analysis of Gas Flow in Shale Matrix

Figure 8 shows a pressure distribution of the same pore network layer where the pore size distribution is according to the real shale matrix pore size range and the gas pressure ratio (gas pressure of pore i divides maximum pore pressure of this layer) is a curved surface demonstrating the fingering effect.

Micro/Nano-pore Network Analysis of Gas Flow in Shale Matrix Pengwei Zhang1, Liming Hu1, Jay N. Meegoda2 & Shengyan Gao2   Abstract The gas flow in shale matrix is of great research interests for optimized shale gas extraction. The gas flow in the nano-scale pore may fall in flow regimes such as viscous flow, slip

WHERE IS THE GAS STORED? Author:  Emanuel Martin Gas in an unconventional field is found in shale which is a rock  rich in organic matter belonging to the family of the mudrocks with the distinctive feature of breaking easily in thin layers. It´s constituted by particles of fine grains that have one
