Combining both theoretical and practical models backed by data, this book gives reservoir engineers a smarter and more sophisticated tool to approach today's more complex geomechanical modeling challenges.
- Provides a foundation of solutions for the extraction of unconventional resources and other related areas- Introduces a completely new theoretical framework of coupled multi-spatial and multi-temporal multi-physics in rocks with significant contracts of physical properties among components- Focuses on an understanding and inclusion of four characteristics of unconventional rocks, with applications to shale gas, coal seam and CO2 sequestration
