shale gas reservoirs

  • Shale gas by country - Wikipedia

    Proven shale gas reserves also found in north-west and also north-east of Java Island. In Kalimantan Island, the proven reserves are in Barito, Kutei, Tarakan, Melawi, and Ketungau. Whereas, in Sulawesi Island, there is only one proven reserve, which is Sengkang. Lastly, in Papua Island, the reserves are found in Akimeugah and Bintuni.

  • AAPG Training Course: Volumetric Analysis of Shale Reservoirs

    Volumetric analysis of shale reservoirs is of prime importance in oil and gas industry. This course practically elaborates how different shale petrophysical parameters such as porosity, fluid saturation, and adsorbed gas, which are essential for volumetric analysis of shale reservoirs.

  • Shale Reservoirs: Giant Resources for the 21st Century

    Shale reservoirs are not new. The first commercial hydrocarbon production in the United States was from a well drilled in 1821 in a shale gas reservoir. By 2000, more than 28,000 wells had been drilled in shale gas reservoirs. Rising gas prices and technological advancements in horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing associated with the development of the Barnett Shale led to a boom in ...
