Description

Petrophysical Characterization and Fluids Transport in Unconventional Reservoirs presents a comprehensive look at these new methods and technologies for the petrophysical characterization of unconventional reservoirs, including recent theoretical advances and modeling on fluids transport in unconventional reservoirs. The book is a valuable tool for geoscientists and engineers working in academia and industry. Many novel technologies and approaches, including petrophysics, multi-scale modelling, rock reconstruction and upscaling approaches are discussed, along with the challenge of the development of unconventional reservoirs and the mechanism of multi-phase/multi-scale flow and transport in these structures.

Key Features

  • Includes both practical and theoretical research for the characterization of unconventional reservoirs
  • Covers the basic approaches and mechanisms for enhanced recovery techniques in unconventional reservoirs
  • Presents the latest research in the fluid transport processes in unconventional reservoirs

Readership

Geologists, Geophysicists, Exploration Geologists, Seismologists, Reservoir engineers and Soil physicists
