The project has the following research flow:
The pore network, reservoir quality, and mechanisms of fluid flow in gas shales are significantly different from those of conventional reservoirs and nonorganic fine-grain sediments. Not been well understood, they are complex and challenging. This research project utilizes multifarious techniques from material science, petrophysics, petrology, and geochemistry to characterize North American shale gas samples. The scheme of this research is illustrated above, which shows a successive series of conducted experiments on the shale gas research which include mercury porosimetry, wettability measurement, clay mineralogy, geochemistry analysis, NMR core analysis, submicron pore imaging, 3D pore reconstruction, and gas flow modeling.
