Inherent defying features in shale gas modelling
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 parties. Integrating all the unique characteristics of shale gas reservoirs within a single reservoir simulator for accurate predictions of future performance has become an increasingly intricate task. For many years now, various researchers have tried to tackle some of these challenges which include, but not limited to, how the natural fractures are simplified and represented in a simulator, the transport of gas within the matrix and fractures, adsorption and desorption phenomena within the shale gas system and also how the fractures are propagated within the shale formation upon hydraulic fracturing. This chapter provides an overview of the advances made in shale gas modelling and highlights the improved understanding conveyed by various researchers on the main defining characteristics of shale and the way these features of shale are modelled in numerical reservoir simulators.

Abstract

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 parties. Integrating all the unique characteristics of shale gas reservoirs within a single reservoir simulator for accurate predictions of future performance has become an increasingly intricate task. For many years now, various researchers have tried to tackle some of these challenges which include, but not limited to, how the natural fractures are simplified and represented in a simulator, the transport of gas within the matrix and fractures, adsorption and desorption phenomena within the shale gas system and also how the fractures are propagated within the shale formation upon hydraulic fracturing. This chapter provides an overview of the advances made in shale gas modelling and highlights the improved understanding conveyed by various researchers on the main defining characteristics of shale and the way these features of shale are modelled in numerical reservoir simulators.
