Shale Reservoir Drainage Visualized for a Wolfcamp Well (Midland Basin, West Texas, USA)

Figure 11. (a–c) Row 1: Pressure contour maps (in MPa) after 1 month drainage for the same central region of Figure 9d, now including flow through micro-cracks normal to the main fractures.

Shale Reservoir Drainage Visualized for a Wolfcamp Well (Midland Basin, West Texas, USA) The visualization of flow near hypothetical micro-cracks normal to the main fractures in a Wolfcamp well shows such micro-cracks support the recovery of hydrocarbons from deeper in the matrix, but still leave matrix portions un-drained with the concurrent
