Can We Accurately Model Fluid Flow in Shale?

January 3, 2013

Shale is a sedimentary rock consisting of layered, fine-grained clay minerals and, often, organic matter such as kerogen, the source of oil and gas. Now, CRD researchers have developed a new mathematical model that incorporates kerogen in calculating how gas and oil become available and how long a reservoir is liable to keep producing. Read More »
