The extraction of average fuel from shale formations isn't any walk in the park and maybe the
most dear in comparison to over unconventional gases. even supposing, its popularity
has grown through the years, there's a lot to be performed to make their construction and
processing less expensive. short but comprehensive, Shale fuel creation Processes
begins with an summary of the chemistry, engineering and know-how of shale fuel. This
is fast by way of self-contained chapters pertaining to new and evolving process
technologies and their functions in addition to environmental regulations.
Written in a simple to learn layout, Shale fuel construction Processes will end up helpful for
those scientists and engineers already engaged in fossil gas technology and expertise as
well as scientists, non-scientists, engineers, and non-engineers who desire to achieve a
general review or replace of the technological know-how and expertise of shale gasoline. furthermore, the
book discusses tools used to lessen environmental footprint and improve
well performance.

  • Updates at the evolving techniques and new processes
  • Provides evaluation of the chemistry, engineering, and know-how of shale gas
  • Guides the reader through the most recent environmental rules concerning creation and processing of shale

2007; Hill and Jarvie, 2007). Because the Chattanooga is relatively thin, horizontal drilling combined with controlled hydrofracturing may maximize production rates. 7 Conasauga Shale The Conasauga Shale gas formation continues to be developed primarily in northeast Alabama (EIA, 2011a). With the exception of one well in Etowah County and one well in Cullman County, all of the development has been in St. Clair County. Etowah and St. Clair counties are located northeast of Birmingham in the Valley and Ridge province of Alabama.

The Viola-Simpson limestone group is found in Tarrant and Parker counties and acts as a barrier between the Barnett and the Ellenburger formations. , 2002) that if fractured will Shale Gas Resources 35 produce copious amounts of highly saline water, effectively shutting down a well with water disposal cost. Geochemical and reservoir parameters for the Barnett Shale in the Fort Worth Basin differ markedly from those of other gas-productive shales, particularly with respect to gas in place. , 2001, 2007).

8 psi/ft at depths greater than 10,000 ft. Shale Gas Resources 37 A challenge within this reservoir is the ability to economically access this large unconventional gas accumulation. This is not a classic 100- to 300-foot-thick organic-rich shale gas reservoir. Instead it is a very large hydrocarbon resource stored in 2500 ft of shale with interbedded siltstone intervals. 3-D seismic data have proved useful in helping define potential fracture networks in the Baxter Shale that can be targeted with horizontal wells.
