Unconventional Resources

Project Number: 07122-07
Project Status:
Completed
RPSEA PM:
Kent Perry
Start Date:
Principal Investigator:
Carter Technologies Co.
Project Objectives:

The objective of this project was to conduct a preliminary evaluation of novel methods for stimulating gas production from low-permeability rocks, including shale, tight sands, and coal bed formations. Specifically, the goal was to assess the feasibility of using a saw to cut a deep slot from a horizontal borehole into the formation at 5,000 to 10,000 foot depths.

Project Number: 07122-09
Project Status:
Completed
RPSEA PM:
Kent Perry
Start Date:
Principal Investigator:
Colorado School of Mines
Project Objectives:

The objective of this project was to test as to whether the composition of natural gas in tight gas sand reservoirs can be used to track and model gas migration and distribution in these reservoirs. Specifically, the project examined the feasibility of using gas composition to understand: 1) gas migration processes in tight gas reservoirs; 2) controls on gas distribution in the reservoir; 3) controls on pressure distribution in the reservoir; and 4) lateral and vertical compartmentalization of the reservoir.
