Development and application of type curves for pressure transient analysis of horizontal wells in shale gas reservoirs

by Inderscience Publishers  (Sep. 19, 2014)

Even though significant progresses have been made in the past few years, there appears to be a lack of information regarding the characterisation of shale gas formations. A major purpose of this study is to demonstrate impacts of horizontal well geometries and gas flow parameters as well as shale gas reservoir system on horizontal well production ...

Unconventional resource evaluation: Kockatea Shale, Perth Basin, Western Australia

by Inderscience Publishers  (Aug. 26, 2014)

Organic-rich shales occur in the Kockatea Shale Formation, Permo-Triassic of the Perth Basin (Western Australia) and have been investigated to characterise it as a potential shale gas unit. Classic sedimentological investigation methods, including core descriptions and thin section microscopy, were coupled with standardised organic geochemical ...

United States Oil and Gas 2015 Analysis

by ReportsnReports / SandlerResearch / MarketnMarkets  (Jan. 7, 2015)

The US will continue to lead gains in non-OPEC crude oil production in the coming years. We forecast crude oil and NGLs production will rise from an estimated 12.4 b/d in 2014 to 15.0 mn b/d by 2023. High growth rates seen in recent years will moderate through our 10-year forecast period, reflecting abrupt depletion rates in shale oil fields, ...
