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 :

Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) in tight and shale oil reservoirs has been a difficult problem due to their high degree of heterogeneity and low to ultralow matrix permeability. Primary recovery factor from these reservoirs is generally lower than 10% of original oil in place (OOIP), which leads to the need for non-conventional technologies for EOR in these reservoirs. A thorough understanding of mass transfer processes in ultralow permeability porous media is required for successful designs of EOR projects in tight oil formations and shales. In this study, two advanced EOR methods that involve the reinjection of field gas into shale and tight oil reservoirs are investigated. In the first part of this dissertation, field gas huff-n-puff process as an EOR method for shales is systematically investigated using an optimal experimental design. For a better understanding of the mass transfer mechanisms in nano-sized pores, the effect of pressure program (i.e., pressure buildup and drawdown during a huff-n-puff cycle), reservoir and crude oil properties, solvent selection, and huff-n-puff cycle duration on oil recovery were investigated. The results show that thermodynamic phase behavior, molecular diffusion, and convection could be related to oil recovery factor, production rate, and produced oil composition, forming a conceptual model for natural gas huff-n-puff in shale reservoirs. The second part of this dissertation presents the investigation of a novel EOR method targeting water-sensitive tight formations with sub-10-mD permeability. Mobility control is crucial for high recovery efficiency in these tight oil reservoirs with high heterogeneity. Preferential flow in high permeability zones (or "thief zones") results in poor sweep efficiency. Conventional conformance control techniques such as polymer gels or even aqueous foam may not be suitable for water-sensitive, low-permeability reservoirs. Therefore, a novel concept of non-aqueous foam for improving field gas miscible displacement has been developed. This foam process involves the injection of a raw mixture of natural gas liquids (MNGLs) with non-condensable gas and a foaming agent, which could improve the sweep efficiency by the generation of non-aqueous foam and maximize the displacement efficiency due to the solubility between the crude oil and MNGLs. A specialty surfactant has been developed which could stabilize non-aqueous foam in MNGLs-crude oil mixture for in-situ foam generation. A pore-scale study of this foam process has been conducted using microfluidics to relate oil displacement to foaming mechanisms. The findings from this microscopic study have been validated using core flooding experiments on tight rocks. It can be concluded from both pore- and core-scale studies that the in-situ propagation of non-aqueous foam could be achieved for the first time and delay the injectant breakthrough, resulting in significant improvement of sweep efficiency

Book Description :

The vast shale gas and tight oil reservoirs in North America cannot be economically developed without multi-stage hydraulic fracture treatments. Owing to the disparity in the density of natural fractures in addition to the disparate in-situ stress conditions in these kinds of formations, microseismic fracture mapping has shown that hydraulic fracture treatments develop a range of large-scale fracture networks in the shale plays. In this thesis, an approach is presented, where the fracture networks approximated with microseismic mapping are integrated with a commercial numerical production simulator that discretely models the network structure in both vertical and horizontal wells. A novel approach for reservoir simulation is used, where porosity (instead of permeability) is used as a scaling parameter for the fracture width. Two different fracture geometries have been broadly proposed for a multi stage horizontal well, orthogonal and transverse. The orthogonal pattern represents a complex network with cross cutting fractures orthogonal to each other; whereas transverse pattern maps uninterrupted fractures achieving maximum depth of penetration into the reservoir. The response for a single-stage fracture is further investigated by comparing the propagation of the stage to be dendritic versus planar. A dendritic propagation is bifurcation of the hydraulic fracture due to intersection with the natural fracture (failure along the plane of weakness). The impact of fracture spacing to optimize these fracture geometries is studied. A systematic optimization for designing the fracture length and width is also presented. The simulation is motivated by the oil window of Eagle Ford shale formation and the results of this work illustrate how different fracture network geometries impact well performance, which is critical for improving future horizontal well completions and fracturing strategies in low permeability shale and tight oil reservoirs. A rate transient analysis (RTA) technique employing a rate normalized pressure (RNP) vs. superposition time function (STF) plot is used for the linear flow analysis. The parameters that influence linear flow are analytically derived. It is found that picking a straight line on this curve can lead to erroneous results because multiple solutions exist. A new technique for linear flow analysis is used. The ratio of derivative of inverse production and derivative of square root time is plotted against square root time and the constant derivative region is seen to be indicative of linear flow. The analysis is found to be robust because different simulation cases are modeled and permeability and fracture half-length are estimated.

Book Description :

"Tight oil" or "light tight oil" refers to a recent trend where horizontal drilling and multi-stage hydraulic fracturing are applied to very low permeability light oil reservoirs. The application of this technology has already transformed the natural gas industry in North America over the last decade, where the outlook for natural gas supply has changed from a projected shortage to a position of sufficient abundance to consider exporting volumes as liquefied natural gas. Tight oil development began with the Bakken play in North Dakota and Montana in the United States. By June, 2011, production from the U.S. Bakken play reached nearly 64 000 m3/d (400 000 bbl/d), a four fold increase over 2005 levels. Where the Bakken tight oil play stretches into Saskatchewan and Manitoba, production in March, 2011, was over 12 400 m3/d (78 000 bbl/d), with the vast majority of growth occurring since mid-2007. The NEB estimates Canadian tight oil production, at March, 2011, to be over 25 400 m3/d (160 000 bbl/d). This report provides a brief background on emerging tight oil resource plays in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin (WCSB). It includes descriptions of the geology, current activity and production levels, and estimates of resources and reserves where available. Appendix A provides charts that summarize oil well licensing, rig activity and production levels for each individual play analyzed. This report does not address the environmental dimensions of tight oil developments in the WCSB.
