Many of unconventional shale reservoirs are marginally economic due to a combination of high drilling and completions costs and/or low productivity. Technological advances in horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing have alleviated these burdens but additional cost reductions and productivity enhancements can be achieved by understanding how the various mineralogy shale rocks mechanical properties and embedment changes during hydraulic fracturing.
