Artificial Expert Systems For Rate Transient Analysis Of Fishbone Wells Completed In Shale Gas Reservoirs Book Review:

Reservoir simulation is the most important tool petroleum engineers use to forecast production performance and set production strategies for oil and gas fields. Nonetheless, thorough reservoir simulation is a time consuming process that requires powerful computational capabilities and highly skilled individuals in reservoir engineering, mathematics, and programing. The accuracy of the simulation process is affected by the availability and quality of reservoir characteristics. These characteristics are obtained using different data acquisition methods such as open-hole logging, well testing, and core analysis which is costly and time consuming. Another factor that affects production performance is horizontal and multilateral well configurations. These well completions are used to increases production rate and enhance sweep efficiency. However, the design of horizontal and multilateral wells is a complex task that involves engineering and economic constraints.This thesis demonstrates the development of artificial expert systems that are not only capable of forecasting, but also robust in multilateral well design and reservoir evaluation. The study covers a wide range of well completions and shale gas reservoirs properties. Using artificial neural networks (ANN), the developed approach delivers forward-looking and inverse-looking solutions to relate between reservoir characteristics, well configurations, and production performance. Production Performance Expert System forecasts the gas rate and cumulative gas production of a given well completed in a shale gas reservoir, and thus it is categorized as a forward-looking solution. The average error of the results generated by the first system is 6.5%. The second expert systems provides an inverse-looking solution to propose multilateral well design given a target production of a specific reservoir. Well design parameters are produced within an average error of 5%. The third and final system is capable of predicting shale reservoir properties by analyzing the production performance of a horizontal or multilateral fishbone well completion. The developed system is capable of predicting reservoir characteristics with an average error of 4.5% from the target data. The developed set of expert systems is expected to reduce the long hours required for excessive computations, which are typical in reservoir simulators. In addition, it can reduce costs of reservoir evaluation by working as an auxiliary tool to expensive well tests, logging operations, and core analysis. However, it is worth mentioning that these expert systems do not replace conventional reservoir simulators, rather they help in enhancing the decision making process by making educated estimations of reservoir properties and basic designs of multilateral wells to be used in history matching and field development or infill drilling strategies.A graphical user interface (GUI) has been developed to offer user accessibility to the aforementioned artificial expert systems. It provides easy execution of codes and neural networks without requiring knowledge of the background mechanism. This interface allows the user to provide their own input data to simulate any desired scenario within the dataset limits. The results of each case are shown graphically or numerically.

Production Trends of Shale Gas Wells Book Review:

To obtain better well performance and improved production from shale gas reservoirs, it is important to understand the behavior of shale gas wells and to identify different flow regions in them over a period of time. It is also important to understand best fracture and stimulation practice to increase productivity of wells. These objectives require that accurate production analysis be performed. For accurate production analysis, it is important to analyze the production behavior of wells, and field production data should be interpreted in such a way that it will identify well parameters. This can be done by performing a detailed analysis on a number of wells over whole reservoirs. This study is an approach that will lead to identifying different flow regions in shale gas wells that include linear and bilinear flow. Important field parameters can be calculated from those observations to help improve future performance. The detailed plots of several wells in this study show some good numbers for linear and bilinear flow, and some unique observations were made. The purpose of this work is to also manage the large amount of data in such a way that they can be used with ease for future studies. A program was developed to automate the analysis and generation of different plots. The program can also be used to perform the simple calculations to calculate different parameters. The goal was to develop a friendly user interface that would facilitate reservoir analysis. Examples were shown for each flow period, i.e. linear and bilinear flow. Different plots were generated (e.g; Bob Plot (square root of time plot) and Fourth Root of Time Plot, that will help in measuring slopes and thus reservoir parameters such as fracture permeability and drainage area. Different unique cases were also observed that show a different behavior of well in one type of plot from another.

Integrative Understanding of Shale Gas Reservoirs Book Review:

This timely book begins with an overview of shale gas reservoir features such as natural fracture systems, multi-fractured horizontal wells, adsorption/desorption of methane, and non-linear flow within the reservoir. Geomechanical modelling, an aspect of importance in ultra-low permeability reservoirs, is also presented in detail. Taking these complex features of shale reservoirs into account, the authors develop a numerical model, which is verified with field data using the history matching technique. Based on this model, the pressure transient and production characteristics of a fractured horizontal well in a shale gas reservoir are analysed with respect to reservoir and fracture properties. Methods for the estimation of shale properties are also detailed. Minifrac tests, rate transient tests (RTA), and type curve matching are used to estimate the initial pressure, permeability, and fracture half-length. Lastly, future technologies such as the technique of injecting CO2 into shale reservoirs are presented. The book will be of interest to industrial practitioners, as well as to academics and graduate students in the field of reservoir engineering.

Long term Well Performance Prediction in Unconventionaltight Gas And Shale Gas Reservoirs Book Review:

Unconventional tight gas and shale gas are the largest and fastest growing natural gas supply in the US. Natural gas produced from tight gas and shale gas reservoirs accounts for 60% of U.S. natural gas production in 2011. This number is expected to increase to 73% in 2040 (EIA, 2013). The lack of understanding and the lack of tools that can be applied to these unconventional plays are the major challenges. In unconventional tight gas and shale gas, the conventional reservoir engineering tools have been proven to be unsuccessful because they fail to capture the large differences in physical properties which heavily impact the production behaviors. The main differences include the ultra-low permeability of the formation, presence of adsorbed phase, and the need for multi-stage hydraulically fractured horizontal well completion to create massive flow area.This study aims to develop new reservoir engineering analysis techniques which fully apply for unconventional tight gas and shale gas reservoirs. The new techniques should be able to capture the reservoir responses that are characterized by the transient flow regime and the multi-mechanistic flow in ultra-low permeability formations, the complex flow pattern from hydraulic fracture completion, and the natural gas desorption. We focus on formulating the fundamental, physics-based governing equation for these tight gas and shale gas reservoirs, as well as the long-term analysis and prediction tools that can capture their physical properties. The research applies new promising tools, a density approach, which was proposed to the industry by our research group. In the density method, gas diffusivity equation will be solved in a density-based form, and effects of reservoir depletion on fluid properties are captured through dimensionless variable, [lambda]-[beta]. The density method has been proven to be a reliable production data analysis tool applicable to conventional gas reservoirs produced under constant flowing pressure, constant flow rate, variable pressure/rate constraint as well as in reservoirs with significant rock compressibility. In this thesis, we prove that density-based technique can be further extended to analyze production data from i) gas linear and fractal flow under boundary dominating condition, ii) gas radial, linear, and fractal flow with significant transient flow period, and iii) gas flow under slippage and desorption effects. We demonstrate that [lambda]-[beta] can effectively quantify effects of depletion on gas properties in reservoirs with linear, radial, and fractal flow. We also show how to incorporate slippage and desorption effects as well as transient flow effect by properly modified definitions of [lambda]-[beta]. Based on these results, we are able to show that the density-based production analysis tools, originally developed for conventional gas reservoirs under boundary dominated radial flow, can be applied to predict and analyze production from unconventional gas reservoirs. In addition, we are able to use these density-based tools to analyze the impact of flow geometries on production decline behavior of gas wells.

Prediction of Boundary dominated Flow for Low Permeability Reservoirs Using Early transient Data Book Review:

Unconventional natural gas resources have become an important energy supply in North America. Shale gas and tight gas provides over half of the natural gas production in the United States. Linear flow is the most common flow type in tight and shale gas reservoirs. A density-based analytical approach was proposed by Vardcharragosad and Ayala (2014) that could predict well production performance in the linear flow regime. However, this approach requires reservoir and fluid properties for the prediction. As matter of fact, most of these reservoir properties are unknown and undetermined. The thrust of this study is to predict the long-term (Boundary-dominated period) well production behavior with the reservoir properties as inputs through an updated density-based approach.The BDF model proposed in this study is based on Vardcharragosad and Ayalas density-based approach (2015). A novel and key task for the BDF production prediction is the utilization of historical production data, which is often termed as Production Data Analysis (PDA). A PDA technique is used to estimate the characterization ratio, which is applied to replace reservoir properties in the prediction model. In addition, transition time needs to be determined to estimate reservoir size because it determines the starting point of the boundary-dominated flow. By using the estimated characterization ratio and the transition time, the novel density-based approach could be re-constructed without inputting specific reservoir properties. The proposed model was initially validated with numerical simulation results.This thesis presents a method to predict boundary-dominated flow behavior in tight and shale gas reservoirs without the knowledge of reservoir properties. The proposed transition time determination approach shows advantages over traditional end of half slope method. Thus, original gas in place can be directly calculated from results of transition time determination and early data analysis more accurately. Also, cost of techniques on determining reservoir properties such as well logging could be reduced.

A New Type Curve Analysis for Shale Gas oil Reservoir Production Performance with Dual Porosity Linear System Book Review:

With increase of interest in exploiting shale gas/oil reservoirs with multiple stage fractured horizontal wells, complexity of production analysis and reservoir description have also increased. Different methods and models were used throughout the years to analyze these wells, such as using analytical solutions and simulation techniques. The analytical methods are more popular because they are faster and more accurate. The main objective of this paper is to present and demonstrate type curves for production data analysis of shale gas/oil wells using a Dual Porosity model. Production data of horizontally drilled shale gas/oil wells have been matched with developed type curves which vary with effective parameters. Once a good match is obtained, the well dual porosity parameters can be calculated. A computer program was developed for more simplified matching process and more accurate results. As an objective of this thesis, a type curve analytical method was presented with its application to field data. The results show a good match with the synthetic and field cases. The calculated parameters are close to those used on the synthetic models and field cases.

Flow Mechanisms and Numerical Simulation of Gas Production from Shale Reservoirs Book Review:

"Shale gas is one kind of the unconventional resources which is becoming an ever increasing component to secure the natural gas supply in U.S. Different from conventional hydrocarbon formations, shale gas reservoirs (SGRs) present numerous challenges to modeling and understanding due to complex pore structure, ultra-low permeability, and multiple transport mechanisms. In this study, the deviation against conventional gas flow have been detected in the lab experiments for gas flow through nano membranes. Based on the experimental results, a new apparent permeability expression is proposed with considering viscous flow, Knudsen diffusion, and slip flow. The gas flow mechanisms of gas flow in the SGRs have been studied using well test method with considering multiple flow mechanisms including desorption, diffusive flow, Darcy flow and stress-sensitivity. Type curves were plotted and different flow regimes were identified. Sensitivity analysis of adsorption and fracturing parameters on gas production performance have been analyzed. Then, numerical simulation study have been conducted for the SGRs with considering multiple mechanisms, including viscous flow, Knudsen diffusion, Klinkenberg effect, pore radius change, gas desorption, and gas viscosity change. Results show that adsorption and gas viscosity change will have a great impact on gas production. At last, the numerical simulation model for SGRs with multi-stage hydraulic fracturing horizontal well has been constructed. Sensitivity analysis for reservoir and fracturing parameters on gas production performance have been conducted. Results show that hydraulic fracture parameters are more sensitive compared with reservoir parameters. The study in this project can contribute to the understanding and simulation of SGRs"--Abstract, page iv.

Flow and Transport Properties of Unconventional Reservoirs 2018 Book Review:

Unconventional reservoirs are usually complex and highly heterogeneous, such as shale, coal, and tight sandstone reservoirs. The strong physical and chemical interactions between fluids and pore surfaces lead to the inapplicability of conventional approaches for characterizing fluid flow in these low-porosity and ultralow-permeability reservoir systems. Therefore, new theories and techniques are urgently needed to characterize petrophysical properties, fluid transport, and their relationships at multiple scales for improving production efficiency from unconventional reservoirs. This book presents fundamental innovations gathered from 21 recent works on novel applications of new techniques and theories in unconventional reservoirs, covering the fields of petrophysical characterization, hydraulic fracturing, fluid transport physics, enhanced oil recovery, and geothermal energy. Clearly, the research covered in this book is helpful to understand and master the latest techniques and theories for unconventional reservoirs, which have important practical significance for the economic and effective development of unconventional oil and gas resources.

Studies of Influencing Factors for Shale Gas Reservoir Performance Book Review:

"Shale gas resource plays a significant role in energy supply worldwide. For economic production of shale gas, technologies of horizontal well and hydraulic fracturing are used for shale gas reservoirs. Therefore, the productivity of the shale gas reservoirs will be influenced by both reservoir condition, and hydraulic fracture properties. In this thesis, parameters that will influence shale gas production were classified into two categories: reservoir properties and hydraulic fracture properties. Published shale gas simulation studies were surveyed for determining the typical ranges of those properties. CMG-GEM was employed to finish the reservoir simulation work, and CMG-CMOST was used to complete the sensitivity analysis work. A three dimensional single phase dual-permeability shale gas reservoir model was created. Three flow mechanisms (Darcy flow, Non-Darcy flow, and Gas diffusion) as well as gas adsorption and desorption mechanism were considered in this model. Sensitivity checks for each parameter were performed to analyze the effect of factors to forecast the production of shale gas reservoir. Influences of reservoir and hydraulic fracture parameters for different time periods were quantified by simulation of 1 yr., 5 yr., 10 yr., and 20 yr. production"--Abstract, page iii.
