[Until recently, shales were regarded by the oil industry as a setback hindering the operations while drilling to target sandstone and limestone reservoirs. Also, it was considered as the source rock for hydrocarbons migrating into conventional reservoirs and as the seal for trapping oil and gas...
[Accurate simulation and modelling of shale gas reservoirs are deemed crucial for efficient exploitation of these resources. Obtaining realistic results for resource estimation and performance predictions has a significant impact on the economics of the operating companies and all interested...
[Some of the inappropriate assumptions that are often made in the use of commercial simulators for shale gas simulations are discussed in this chapter. For shale gas reservoirs characterised by very small pore size network, these approximations could lead to serious errors. Modelling of the...
[Prediction of production performance in shale gas reservoirs can be achieved through a number of techniques designed to produce information about the estimated ultimate recovery and also about the reservoir parameters such as permeability, skin and fracture properties. These methods sometimes...
