This work provides a roadmap of practice and theory for reservoir and production engineering that can (and should) be used for the description, assessment, and modeling of unconventional gas systems. There are many substantive engineering challenges which exist and are likely to remain with regard to unconventional gas systems — a sample listing of these challenges include:
●"Stimulated Reservoir Volume" (or SRV)? (What is it, really?)
●Role of desorption in shale gas? (Significance? Timing? Relevance?)
●Stimulation fluids? (Fluid recovery? Formation damage? Alternatives?)
●Role of natural fractures? (Can this be quantified in gas shales?)
●Dual porosity/dual permeability concept? (Physically consistent?)
The proposed workflow constitutes more than simply "best practices," but rather, the means to develop optimal/fit-for-purpose processes and procedures for the engineering aspects of tight gas sands and gas shales. The application of this approach is demonstrated via anonymous field cases and literature materials/data.
As this effort is a "work-in-progress," active participation/ discussion, as well as challenging questions are enthusiastically invited.
