Summary : The information of fractures geometry and reservoir properties can be retrieved from the production data, which is always available at no additional cost. However, in unconventional reservoirs, it is insufficient to obtain only one realization because the non-uniqueness of history matching and subsurface uncertainties cannot be captured. Therefore, the objective of this study is to obtain multiple realizations in shale reservoirs by adopting Assisted History Matching (AHM). We used multiple proxy-based Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithm and Embedded Discrete Fracture Model (EDFM) to perform AHM. The reason is that MCMC has benefits of quantifying uncertainty without bias or being trapped in any local minima. Also, using MCMC with proxy model unlocks the limitation of an infeasible number of simulations required by a traditional MCMC algorithm. For fractures modeling, EDFM can mimic fractures flow behavior with a higher computational efficiency than a traditional local grid refinement (LGR) method and more accuracy than the continuum approach. We applied the AHM workflow to actual shale gas wells. We found that the algorithm can find multiple history matching solutions and quantify the fractures and reservoir properties posterior distributions. Then, we predicted the production probabilistically. Moreover, we investigated the performance of neural network (NN) and k-nearest neighbors (KNN) as a proxy model in the proxy-based MCMC algorithm. We found that NN performed better in term of accuracy than KNN but NN required twice running time of KNN. Lastly, we studied the effect of enhanced permeability area (EPA) and natural fractures existence on the history matching solutions and production forecast. We concluded that we would over-predict fracture geometries and properties and estimated ultimate recovery (EUR) if we assumed no EPA or no natural fractures even though they actually existed. The degree of over-prediction depends on fractures and reservoir properties, EPA and natural fractures properties, which can only be quantified after performing AHM. The benefits from this study are that we can characterize fractures geometry, reservoir properties, and natural fractures in a probabilistic manner. These multiple realizations can be further used for a probabilistic production forecast, future fracturing design improvement, and infill well placement decision

Summary : This book describes the application of modern information technology to reservoir modeling and well management in shale. While covering Shale Analytics, it focuses on reservoir modeling and production management of shale plays, since conventional reservoir and production modeling techniques do not perform well in this environment. Topics covered include tools for analysis, predictive modeling and optimization of production from shale in the presence of massive multi-cluster, multi-stage hydraulic fractures. Given the fact that the physics of storage and fluid flow in shale are not well-understood and well-defined, Shale Analytics avoids making simplifying assumptions and concentrates on facts (Hard Data - Field Measurements) to reach conclusions. Also discussed are important insights into understanding completion practices and re-frac candidate selection and design. The flexibility and power of the technique is demonstrated in numerous real-world situations.

Summary : The development of naturally fractured reservoirs, especially shale gas and tight oil reservoirs, exploded in recent years due to advanced drilling and fracturing techniques. However, complex fracture geometries such as irregular fracture networks and non-planar fractures are often generated, especially in the presence of natural fractures. Accurate modelling of production from reservoirs with such geometries is challenging. Therefore, Embedded Discrete Fracture Modeling and Application in Reservoir Simulation demonstrates how production from reservoirs with complex fracture geometries can be modelled efficiently and effectively. This volume presents a conventional numerical model to handle simple and complex fractures using local grid refinement (LGR) and unstructured gridding. Moreover, it introduces an Embedded Discrete Fracture Model (EDFM) to efficiently deal with complex fractures by dividing the fractures into segments using matrix cell boundaries and creating non-neighboring connections (NNCs). A basic EDFM approach using Cartesian grids and advanced EDFM approach using Corner point and unstructured grids will be covered. Embedded Discrete Fracture Modeling and Application in Reservoir Simulation is an essential reference for anyone interested in performing reservoir simulation of conventional and unconventional fractured reservoirs. Highlights the current state-of-the-art in reservoir simulation of unconventional reservoirs Offers understanding of the impacts of key reservoir properties and complex fractures on well performance Provides case studies to show how to use the EDFM method for different needs

Summary : Gas reservoir engineering is the branch of reservoir engineering that deals exclusively with reservoirs of non-associated gas. The prime purpose of reservoir engineering is the formulation of development and production plans that will result in maximum recovery for a given set of economic, environmental and technical constraints. This is not a one-time activity but needs continual updating throughout the production life of a reservoir. The objective of this book is to bring together the fundamentals of gas reservoir engineering in a coherent and systematic manner. It is intended both for students who are new to the subject and practitioners, who may use this book as a reference and refresher. Each chapter can be read independently of the others and includes several, completely worked exercises. These exercises are an integral part of the book; they not only illustrate the theory but also show how to apply the theory to practical problems. Chapters 2, 3 and 4 are concerned with the basic physical properties of reservoirs and natural gas fluids, insofar as of relevance to gas reservoir engineering. Chapter 5 deals with the volumetric estimation of hydrocarbon fluids in-place and the recoverable hydrocarbon reserves of gas reservoirs. Chapter 6 presents the material balance method, a classic method for the analysis of reservoir performance based on the Law of Conservation of Mass. Chapters 7-10 discuss various aspects of the flow of natural gas in the reservoir and the wellbore: single phase flow in porous and permeable media; gaswell testing methods based on single-phase flow principles; the mechanics of gas flow in the wellbore; the problem of water coning, the production of water along with the gas in gas reservoirs with underlaying bottom water. Chapter 11 discusses natural depletion, the common development option for dry and wet gas reservoirs. The development of gas-condensate reservoirs by gas injection is treated in Chapter 12. Appendix A lists the commonly used units in gas reservoir engineering, along with their conversion factors. Appendix B includes some special physical and mathematical constants that are of particular interest in gas reservoir engineering. Finally, Appendix C contains the physical properties of some common natural-gas components.

Summary : A hallmark of unconventional reservoirs is characterization uncertainty. Assisted History Matching (AHM) methods provide attractive means for uncertainty quantification (UQ), because they yield an ensemble of qualifying models instead of a single candidate. Here we integrate embedded discrete fracture model (EDFM), one of fractured-reservoirs modeling techniques, with a commercial AHM and optimization tool. We develop a new parameterization scheme that allows for altering individual properties of multiple wells or fracture groups. The reservoir is divided into three types of regions: formation matrix; EDFM fracture groups; and stimulated rock volume (SRV) around fracture groups. The method is developed in a sleek, stand-alone form and is composed of four main steps: (1) reading parameters exported by tool; (2) generating an EDFM instance; (3) running the instance on a simulator; and (4) calculating a pre-defined objective function. We present two applications. First, we test the method on a hypothetical case with synthetic production data from two wells. Using 20 history-matching parameters, we compare the performance of five AHM algorithms. Two of which are based on Bayesian approach, two are stochastic particle-swarm optimization (PSO), and one is commercial DECE algorithm. Performance is measured with metrics, such as solutions sample size, total simulation runs, marginal parameter posterior distributions, and distributions of estimated ultimate recovery (EUR). In the second application, we assess the effect of natural fractures on UQ of a single horizontal well in the middle Bakken. This is achieved by comparing four AHM scenarios with increasingly varying natural-fracture intensity. Results of the first study show that, based on pre-set acceptance criteria, DECE fails to generate any satisfying solutions. Bayesian methods are noticeably superior to PSO, although PSO is capable to generate large number of solutions. PSO tends to be focused on narrow regions of the posteriors and seems to significantly underestimate uncertainty. Bayesian Algorithm I, a method with a proxy-based acceptance/rejection sampler, ranks first in efficiency but evidently underperforms in accuracy. Results from the second study reveal that, even though varying intensity of natural fractures cam significantly alter other model parameters, that appears not to have influence on UQ (or long-term production)

Summary : Reservoir Characterization is a collection of papers presented at the Reservoir Characterization Technical Conference, held at the Westin Hotel-Galleria in Dallas on April 29-May 1, 1985. Conference held April 29-May 1, 1985, at the Westin Hotel—Galleria in Dallas. The conference was sponsored by the National Institute for Petroleum and Energy Research, Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Reservoir characterization is a process for quantitatively assigning reservoir properties, recognizing geologic information and uncertainties in spatial variability. This book contains 19 chapters, and begins with the geological characterization of sandstone reservoir, followed by the geological prediction of shale distribution within the Prudhoe Bay field. The subsequent chapters are devoted to determination of reservoir properties, such as porosity, mineral occurrence, and permeability variation estimation. The discussion then shifts to the utility of a Bayesian-type formalism to delineate qualitative ""soft"" information and expert interpretation of reservoir description data. This topic is followed by papers concerning reservoir simulation, parameter assignment, and method of calculation of wetting phase relative permeability. This text also deals with the role of discontinuous vertical flow barriers in reservoir engineering. The last chapters focus on the effect of reservoir heterogeneity on oil reservoir. Petroleum engineers, scientists, and researchers will find this book of great value.
