Investigation of gas shale pore structure and its influence on transport properties
MetadataShow full item record
Knowledge and understanding of rock properties is essential to determine hydrocarbon storage and recovery. This thesis evaluates the microstructural characteristics of gas shale formations from the Perth Basin, Western Australia. The tools to assess shale’s textures and flow parameters still remain a challenge. In this study numerous techniques such as mercury injection capillary pressure, nuclear magnetic resonance, low pressure nitrogen adsorption and focused ion beam-scanning electron microscopy have been employed to access shale nano scale pore structure.

Evaluation of pore size spectrum of gas shale reservoirs using low pressure nitrogen adsorption, gas expansion and mercury porosimetry: A case study from the Perth and Canning Basins, Western AustraliaLabani, M.; Rezaee, Reza; Saeedi, Ali; Al Hinai, Adnan (2013)Gas shales have a complex pore structure. Mechanisms of gas storage in the gas shale pore system are in two ways, free gas and sorbed gas. The nanometer scaled pore systems of gas shale reservoirs have a prominent ...
