GAS STORAGE AND TRANSPORT IN THE DEVONIAN SHALES. Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • There has been recent interest in applying dual-porosity reservoir simulators to the analysis of production data in the Devonian Shales. In a dual-porosity model, gas is stored in the rock matrix, while production occurs through a network of naturally occurring fractures which intersects the wellbore. This paper presents the results of degassing experiments performed on Devonian Shale core samples to identify the storage capacity and fluid flow characteristics of the Devonian Shale matrix.
