about this item
Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources Handbook: Evaluation and Development is a must-have, helpful handbook that brings a wealth of background information to the engineer and geologist alike. Bridging between subsurface and production, the handbook extends your reservoir’s potential by providing multiple layers of methods to lead you to a better defined reservoir.
Better reservoir knowledge and more sophisticated technology are making unconventional resources economically possible, but for young and even experienced engineers, this kind of reservoir is new and complex, making identification and characterization difficult and confusing.
Topics include: integrating seismic data to better find the production sweet spot in shale reservoirs; understanding transport properties in shale gas reservoirs from nano-pores to reservoir scale; meeting the challenges and recent advancements in modeling natural and hydraulic fracture networks; and evaluating completion effectiveness and prediction of well performance.
- Explores how to identify reservoir characterization methods to improve your unconventional reservoir’s production capabilities
- Highlights the technical challenges in exploiting all types of unconventional resources, including hydrates
- Delivers balanced information with multiple contributors from various backgrounds such as academia, service providers, and oil and gas operators
- Brings a wealth of background information to the engineer and geologist alike, bridging between subsurface and production
