Paper Number: SPE-200001-MS
... illustrated promising results in terms of recovery factor for different EOR applications, such as CO 2 , surfactant, and natural gas. However, pilot tests performance reported contrast behavior due to misleading predicting for the EOR physics processes. This paper presents the experimental work to evaluate...

Paper Number: SPE-189780-MS
... Abstract Due to the mixed-wettability phenomenon found in Montney rock fabric, choosing the ideal flowback enhancer/surfactant to Enhance Post Frac Oil Recovery (EPFOR), has not been a straightforward task. Along with the wettability ambiguity, Montney exhibits nano-Darcy permeability making...

Paper Number: SPE-189783-MS
... Abstract Primary oil recovery from shales is very low, rarely exceeding 10% of original oil in place (OOIP). The low recovery has aroused a recent and growing interest in the petroleum industry for using Improved Oil Recovery (IOR) methods in shales. This paper presents a new semi-analytical...

... the leak-off and flowback processes. To evaluate the effects of surfactant solutions on the formation damage reduction we 1) measure the pressure drop across the core plug during both leak-off and flowback processes, and 2) evaluate the oil recovery factor during the leak-off process. The results...

Paper Number: SPE-185026-MS
... Abstract The most commonly used technology for development of unconventional liquid-rich and light oil reservoirs is horizontal wells combined with large multi-stage hydraulic fracture treatments. However, even with these technological advancements, primary recovery factors are generally less...

... the number of clusters per stage and proppant mass per stage improves well production and recovery. However, the question is are these improvements short time gains, and what is the balance between well productivity and economics? Thirdly, in this study, we propose using measureable and known metrics...

Paper presented at the SPE Unconventional Resources Conference, February 15–16, 2017
Paper Number: SPE-185043-MS
... Abstract Many stimulated shale gas wells experience surprisingly low fracturing fluid recoveries. Fracture closure, gravity segregation, fracture tortuosity, proppant distribution, and shut-in (soaking) time have been widely postulated to be the contributing factors. This study examines...

Paper Number: SPE-185062-MS
... Abstract Evaluation of enhanced liquid recovery from tight or shale reservoirs is currently of great interest to operators. One reason is the low primary oil recovery of tight/shale reservoirs, which ranges between 5-10% ( Shoaib and Hoffman, 2009 ) even after expensive multi-stage hydraulic...

... since the 1950's. The unique physical properties of CO 2 allow for easy transport in pipelines as a gas, or by transport truck as a cold liquid. Oilfield uses include: a gaseous agent to assist in fluid recovery from the wellbore, a component in hydraulic fracture fluids, an enhanced oil recovery (EOR...

... the rest is retained within the kerogen matrix. In liquid rich shale plays, the hydrocarbons retained within the kerogen plays a key role in estimated ultimate recovery (EUR). However, the vapor-liquid equilibrium between oil and gas in shales is affected by the presence of kerogen. The conventional...

.... Furthermore, during the development phase, the depletion from parent wells leads to asymmetric hydraulic fracture growth on closely spaced infill wells. Parent wells may also be negatively impacted due to hydraulic fracture interference from new completions. These factors have led to poor hydrocarbon recovery...

... conventional thinking in shales, where ‘more water and less proppant is better’. Lamson (2013) reported that reduced volumes of water and increased concentrations of larger proppants resulted in better productivity. Also, adding nitrogen at 20% quality significantly increased load fluid recovery...
