Paper presented at the SPE Kuwait Oil & Gas Show and Conference, October 15–18, 2017
Paper Number: SPE-187667-MS
... Because of shale gas reservoirs high complexity and poor petrophysical properties gas is stored as both free gas in formation pores, fractures and between shale layers, and as adsorbed gas adhered to the mineral and organic matter (Kerogen), which significantly complicates gas production...

Paper presented at the 54th U.S. Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium, June 28–July 1, 2020
Paper Number: ARMA-2020-1542
... ABSTRACT Horizontal wells and multistage fracturing are the main techniques for developing shale gas because of the extremely low permeability of shale reservoirs. The extension of the fracture network formed by horizontal well fracturing and the stimulated reservoir volume (SRV) are controlled...
