Well Production Performance Analysis for Shale Gas Reservoirs, Volume 66 presents tactics and discussions that are urgently needed by the petroleum community regarding unconventional oil and gas resources development and production. The book breaks down the mechanics of shale gas reservoirs and the use of mathematical models to analyze their performance.
- Features an in-depth analysis of shale gas horizontal fractured wells and how they differ from their conventional counterparts
- Includes detailed information on the testing of fractured horizontal wells before and after fracturing
- Offers in-depth analysis of numerical simulation and the importance of this tool for the development of shale gas reservoirs
