Modeling of gas flow in fractured shale
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article › peer-review
In this paper equations and methodologies for the simple modeling of gas flow in fractured shale are developed. Transmissibility following hydraulic fracturing is related to the geo-mechanical properties of the shale. Methods for the application of these models using commercial conventional reservoir models to predict well productivity are developed. This provides a valuable tool in estimating the productivity and economic value of a potential shale gas play where only geological, petrophysical and geo-mechanical and limited or analogue production data is available.
