  Usman Ahmed is CTO of unconventional oil and gas resources technology and executive technical advisor to WellDog, and more recently, vice president and chief reservoir engineer at Baker Hughes. He previously worked for Schlumberger, TerraTek, and his own reservoir and production engineering consulting firm, Energy Resources International/5(5). Enhanced Gas Recovery In the Woodford formation in southern Oklahoma, the Arkoma No. 1 received an HnP treatment using nanoparticles and N 2 for EOR (Figure 2). Prior to treatment, the two-year-old well had produced 1, Mcf/d of gas and had not produced any crude oil in 45 days. Oil Recovery in Shale and Tight Reservoirs delivers a current, state-of-the-art resource for engineers trying to manage unconventional hydrocarbon resources. Going beyond the traditional EOR methods, this book helps readers solve key challenges on the proper methods, technologies and options available. Purchase Unconventional Gas Reservoirs - 1st Edition.

  Reservoir Engineering focuses on the fundamental concepts related to the development of conventional and unconventional reservoirs and how these concepts are applied in the oil and gas industry to meet both economic and technical challenges. Written in easy to understand language, the book provides valuable information regarding present-day tools, techniques, and technologies and . Major unconventional gas resources include shale gas, coalbed methane (CBM), and tight gas. In the United States alone, unconventional gas resources provide more than half of daily gas supplies. Notable shale plays include Eagle Ford, Marcellus, Fayetteville, . Unconventional oil is petroleum produced or extracted using techniques other than the conventional method ().Industry and governments across the globe are investing in unconventional oil sources due to the increasing scarcity of conventional oil entional oil and gas have already made a dent in international energy linkages by reducing US energy import dependency. Unconventional gas is natural gas obtained from sources of production that are, in a given era and location, considered to be new and different. Sources that are at times considered to be unconventional include the following: Coalbed methane [citation needed]; Methane clathrate (gas hydrate) [citation needed]; Shale gas [citation needed]; Synthetic natural gas, such as oil shale gas.

A Critical Evaluation of Unconventional Gas Recovery from the Marcellus Shale, Northeastern United States Dae Sung Lee*, Jonathan D. Herman**, Derek Elsworth***, Hyun Tae Kim****, and Hyun Suk Lee***** Received Aug /Accepted Febru   Although hundreds of thousands of wells have been drilled and completed, recovery factors remain low in both tight oil (%) and shale gas (%) reservoirs. This course, designed for both geoscientists and engineers, covers topics ranging from the physical properties of reservoir rocks at the nanometer- to centimeter-scale to the state of. The unconventional gas reservoir is commonly defined as reservoir with poor permeability (less than mD) (Gordon ;Holditch ). There are four categories of unconventional gas that are.   Hydraulic fracturing has been successfully applied in various conventional (for enhanced oil recovery/gas recovery (EOR/EGR)) and unconventional reservoirs/source rocks, such as oil shales and tight rocks (i.e. tight oil/gas sandstones, limestones, shale, etc.) (e.g. [1, 3, 4]).
