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 involve obtaining well production data and making future predictions from them. This chapter looks at some of the analytical and semi-analytical models for production performance calculations associated with shale gas reservoirs. The techniques discussed in this chapter include decline curve analysis, pressure transient analysis and rate transient analysis.
