Book Description :

Abstract: One of the key technologies that made the development of unconventional formations possible is the creation of a complex fracture network. In most recent analytical models for flow in hydraulically fractured reservoirs, diffusivity flow in a fracture network equivalent to a homogeneous medium of Euclidean geometry has been considered. In this paper we incorporate a more detailed description of complex fracture networks to improve the pressure transient analysis of hydraulically fractured tight oil formations. Specifically, we employ a Fractal Diffusivity approach in which characteristics of flow in a dual-continuum porous medium are taken into consideration using fractal theory. In the proposed model, we represent the porosity and permeability of the fracture network in the Stimulated Reservoir Volume (SRV) using the fractal porosity–permeability relations. We use a trilinear flow model to represent the flow in hydraulic fractures, the SRV, and the formation away from hydraulic fractures. To solve the equations in different regions, we define proper boundary conditions and use Laplace transformation followed by numerical inversion to the time domain. We conduct several model validation and sensitivity studies. The proposed model provides a more realistic representation of flow in different regions around a fractured horizontal well, thereby giving rise to more reliable type curves that can be used for pressure transient analysis of tight oil formations.

Book Description :

Highlights: A poro-elasticity simulation model of tight oil reservoir was developed. Biot's coefficient has a significant influence on oil recovery factor. Sensitivity analysis of the injection parameters is conducted. Abstract: A poro-elasticity reservoir simulation model was developed to analyze the huff-n-puff operations in the Fuyu continental tight oil layer. The model was based on the "two-way" coupling of a geomechanical model and a compositional model. The pressures induced from the compositional model were set as input for the geomechanical model, and the effective stresses calculated from the geomechanical model were set as input for the compositional model. The results show that under specific assumptions, effective stress increases during the depletion and production period and decreases during the injection and soaking period, resulting in corresponding changes to the displacement and effective stress. Biot coefficient also has a significant and systematic influence on the resulting oil recovery factor of CO2 huff-n-puff. In addition, a sensitivity analysis of the injection parameters, including injection timing, production time, and soaking time, was performed in detail. This work provides a better understanding of the mechanisms of the CO2 huff-n-puff operations of horizontal wells in a continental tight oil sandstone formation.

Book Description :

The development of tight-gas reservoirs over the last half-century has profoundly affected and expanded the petroleum industry. Moreover, our improved understanding of tight-gas reservoirs--from finding, characterizing, testing, modeling and developing them to producing their resources economically--can be felt not only throughout our industry but also throughout our economy and, indeed, our daily routines. Abundant, reliable, and inexpensive natural gas has truly transformed many aspects of our modern lifestyles. Within the last decade, for example, the world has made great strides in switching from coal-fired to gas-fired electricity generation (with a resulting reduction of US CO2 emissions of 14% since 2005*). Our expanded knowledge of natural-gas development and production has further advanced the goal of achieving energy independence, transforming the US from a gas importer into the third largest liquid natural gas (LNG) exporter in the world. It is truly hard to overstate the efficacy of our understanding and exploitation of tight-gas reservoirs. The four parts contained in this book methodically and comprehensively unfold the technical elements of developing tight-gas reservoirs. They are written - with an industry-wide audience in mind - to help the student understand fundamental concepts - to provide comprehensive reference material for the experienced engineer - for the practitioner in the field looking for case studies and analogues - for those readers curious of mathematical detail and theory, where it will surely lay the foundation for many future academic investigations and doctoral theses This book is comprehensive enough to apply equally to those readers interested in tight-oil reservoirs--common fundamentals, many similar concepts, just larger molecules. This book's organization supports its methodological approach. Part 1 introduces tight-gas resources, including definitions and beginning concepts. Thorough analyses of tight-gas resource types (conventional, shale, and coalbed methane) and their geographical distribution and reserves are given. This part describes shale-gas plays within North America in detail. Part 2 begins where the study of all reservoirs begin, with detailed characterization. Chapters within this part discuss geological considerations over various scales, as well as detailed concepts in well testing and modeling to determine necessary formation properties. Part 3 details all aspects of designing, planning, modeling, and executing hydraulic fracture treatments and provides details on fracture initiation, geometry, and propagation. Part 4 contains 23 case histories of tight gas reservoir development.

Book Description :

Unconventional Gas and Tight Oil Exploitation takes an in-depth look at unconventional low-permeability resource accumulations, the required technologies for specialized development, and the assessments currently being applied. With an author team of 14 subject-matter experts with specialization in different tight oil and unconventional-gas areas, this new book is an authoritative resource for those looking to increase recoverable resources. A must read for those wanting to make a significant positive impact on global energy markets while respecting the environment. Changes to global energy markets, shifts in international oil-supply projections, advancements in horizontal drilling and multistage hydraulic-fracturing technologies-these realities coalesce to potentially extend natural gas and oil supplies by several decades by current levels of consumption. In Unconventional Gas and Tight Oil Exploitation, the authors lend their expertise to offer an in-depth look at unconventional low-permeability resource accumulations, the required technologies for specialized development, and the assessments currently being applied. While percent recoveries from unconventional gas and tight oil accumulations have been very low compared with conventional reservoirs, these unconventional resources have been enough to dramatically change the slope of production decline in the United States from negative to positive in a very short period of time. This change of slope is "magic" and reflects the creativity of the oil and gas industry. The authors of this book seek to ascertain and explore the challenges and opportunities associated with the current commercial development techniques in an effort to fully understand the reservoirs, the mode of petroleum storage and transport within the reservoirs, the design of drilling and completion programs, and the physics behind formation analyses. Through this understanding, unconventional gas and tight oil exploitation techniques can be developed further, resulting in low production costs, improved economics, increase in technically recoverable resources while respecting the environment, and significant positive impact of gas and tight oil developments globally.

Book Description :

Abstract : Upper Triassic sandstones in the Ordos Basin, northern‐central China, comprise tight oil reservoirs. Using a combination of thin sections, SEM, BSE, EDS, XRD, and fluid inclusion analyses, 24 core samples from 13 wells were collected to study the petrology, paragenesis, and diagenetic processes and implications for reservoir quality. Quartz cement usually occurs as overgrowths or euhedral quartz. Extensive dissolution and albitization of K‐feldspar can be observed. Five types of carbonate cements, ferrocalcite, ankerite, dolomite, calcite, and siderite, occur during different diagenetic stages. Two main types of illite and 5 main habits of chlorite are observed in this study. Kaolinite mainly occurs as booklets and vermicular aggregates. Diagenetic illite, chlorite, biotite, mixed‐layer illite/smectite (I/S), and other minor minerals are also observed. The diagenetic processes include compaction, alteration of volcanic materials and mica, clay mineral transformation, cementation (silica, aluminosilicate, and carbonate), and dissolution of feldspars and rock fragments. Compaction was a significant porosity‐reducing agent, and the presence of carbonate cement exerts a dominant impact on the reduction of porosity. Quartz cement and authigenic clays are less important; however, it is worth mentioning that pore‐lining clays are conducive to porosity preservation. In this study, most of the porosity variation is caused by a combination of compaction, carbonate cements, quartz cement, and authigenic clays. This study gives insights into diagenetic alterations within tight sandstones and has implications for reservoir quality prediction in similar settings.

Book Description :

Estimating oil recovery from shale is a difficult process because organic mudrocks have very low permeability (10nD – 100nD), high kerogen and clay content, a complex pore structure and low porosity (typically less than 10%). In addition, most of the pore sizes in organic mudrocks are within the nanometer range, thus making the process of oil intrusion very difficult to achieve and even harder to measure with certainty. Several methods have been proposed to estimate saturation profiles and capillary pressure curves in conventional rocks, but these methods fail in tight rocks because of the complexities inherent in these types of reservoirs. This report presents a new method that makes use of the pressure decline versus time data to estimate the capillary pressure drainage curve in tight rocks. The method was used to estimate the capillary drainage curve for an Eagle Ford shale and it was also used to determine the shale’s liquid permeability using the early time data of the pressure decline curve. The data obtained during the experiment could be used to estimate fluid saturations as a function of time which can be very useful in determining relative permeability curves in the shale. This new procedure is easy, fast and can be reversed to estimate imbibition curves as well. It can be applied to both conventional and unconventional rocks and it can be useful in EOR experiments to estimate oil recovery as a function of time. Furthermore, this report presents the use of NMR as a useful tool in examining fluid distributions and characterizing fluid types within tight rocks, via a combination of NMR T1 and T2 data

Book Description :

The development of naturally fractured reservoirs, especially shale gas and tight oil reservoirs, exploded in recent years due to advanced drilling and fracturing techniques. However, complex fracture geometries such as irregular fracture networks and non-planar fractures are often generated, especially in the presence of natural fractures. Accurate modelling of production from reservoirs with such geometries is challenging. Therefore, Embedded Discrete Fracture Modeling and Application in Reservoir Simulation demonstrates how production from reservoirs with complex fracture geometries can be modelled efficiently and effectively. This volume presents a conventional numerical model to handle simple and complex fractures using local grid refinement (LGR) and unstructured gridding. Moreover, it introduces an Embedded Discrete Fracture Model (EDFM) to efficiently deal with complex fractures by dividing the fractures into segments using matrix cell boundaries and creating non-neighboring connections (NNCs). A basic EDFM approach using Cartesian grids and advanced EDFM approach using Corner point and unstructured grids will be covered. Embedded Discrete Fracture Modeling and Application in Reservoir Simulation is an essential reference for anyone interested in performing reservoir simulation of conventional and unconventional fractured reservoirs. Highlights the current state-of-the-art in reservoir simulation of unconventional reservoirs Offers understanding of the impacts of key reservoir properties and complex fractures on well performance Provides case studies to show how to use the EDFM method for different needs

Book Description :

ABSTRACT: The lower–middle Permian Lucaogou (P2 l) Formation is a "sandwich-type'' combination of source rocks and reservoirs that is considered to be a potential tight oil reservoir in the Jimusar Sag (JS). We investigated the P2 l Formation using a designated workflow to assess its potential as a viable tight oil reservoir play using geological, petrographical, petrophysical, and geochemical characterisation of core samples. The results showed that the P2 l source rocks have a widespread distribution (up to 1500 km 2 ), a huge thickness (up to 160 m), a relatively high abundance of organic matter (averaging 3.12 wt%), a good sapropelic quality, and a moderate thermal maturity. The reservoir consists mainly of dolomites and siltstones, predominantly characterised by secondary dissolved pores, with medium–high porosity (averaging 9.1%) and relative low permeability (averaging 0.26 mD), high abundance of brittle minerals (averaging 87.1%), and low abundance of clay minerals (averaging 11.2%) with low water sensitivity. The results demonstrate that in the JS area the P2 l Formation has great potential for tight oil production with its considerable hydrocarbon expulsion quantities, good oil storage capability, and reservoir frackability potential and provide a basis for further evaluation of the tight oil potential of the P2 l Formation in the wider Junggar Basin and for identifying similar plays elsewhere.
