Petrophysical Characterization and Fluids Transport in Unconventional Reservoirs
Coordonnateurs : Cai Jianchao, Hu Xiangyun
Petrophysical Characterization and Fluids Transport in Unconventional Reservoirs presents a comprehensive look at these new methods and technologies for petrophysical characterization of unconventional reservoirs, including recent theoretical advances and modelling on fluids transport in unconventional reservoirs. The book is a valuable tool for geoscientists and engineers, working in academia and industry.
Unconventional reservoirs, including shale, coal and tight sandstone reservoirs, have received more and more attention in recent years. The main challenge of development of unconventional reservoirs is how to accurately characterize its complex microstructure and the mechanism of multi-phase/multi-scale flow and transport in these structures. As a result of this challenge, many novel technologies and approaches, including petrophysics, multi-scale modelling, rock reconstruction and upscaling approaches have been proposed and developed.
- Includes both practical and theoretical research for the characterization of unconventional reservoirs
- Covers the basic approaches and mechanisms for enhanced recovery techniques in unconventional reservoirs
- Presents the latest research in the fluid transport processes in unconventional reservoirs
