Shale oil recovery factor

The current available technique to produce shale oil and gas condensate is through primary depletion using horizontal wells with multiple transverse fractures. The oil recovery factor is only a few percent. There is a big prize to be claimed in terms of enhanced oil recovery (EOR). Review of Emerging Resources: U.S. Shale Gas and Shale Oil Plays The 750 trillion cubic feet of shale gas resources in the INTEK shale report is a subset of the AEO2011 onshore Lower 48 States natural gas shale technically recoverable resource estimate of 862 trillion cubic feet. The US has 13 shale plays with major oil and gas resources. Two of them-Bakken and Eagle Ford-account for about 75% of the country's shale oil output Nov 3rd, 2014

June, 2013 18 A recovery efficiency factor of up to 8% may be applied in a few exceptional cases for shale areas with reservoir properties or established high rates of well performance. Shale formations in North America such as Bakken, Niobrara, and Eagle Ford have huge oil in place, 100–900 billion barrels of oil in Bakken only. However, the predicted primary recovery is still below 10%. Therefore, seeking for techniques to enhance oil recovery in these complex plays is inevitable. Cardneaux, A. and Nunn, J. A. 2013.

Determination of Recovery Factor in the Bakken Formation, Mountrail County, ND. The goal, he says, is to increase the Recovery Factor – get more oil or gas out of the ground per well. “You look at the Haynesville (shale gas formation in Louisiana) and they have big initial production (IP) rates but high declines, sometimes a 90% reduction in production in the first year. Related to these low recovery rates, both gas and liquids-rich shale production declines rapidly in shale formations, with production often declining by half or more of initial production rate within the first six to 12 months. The rapid declines are caused by flush production from the natural fractures,

6. For shale oil, identify those U.S. shales that best match the geophysical characteristics of the foreign shale oil formation to estimate the oil in-place recovery factor. 3 For shale gas, determine the recovery factor based on geologic complexity, pore size, formation pressure, and clay content, the latter of which The current available technique to produce shale oil and gas condensate is through primary depletion using horizontal wells with multiple transverse fractures.

The recovery in the US shale oil industry, a major factor that has kept global crude prices relatively steady at around $50 a barrel this year, looks like it may run its course. 6.
