US Shale Gas Plays
AUTHOR:admin PUBLISHED:2016-09-26 CLICK:正在读取

The Bureau of Economic Geology Shale Production and Reserves Study at the University of Texas at Austin has been awarded a $350,000 grant by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for an 18-month study reviewing prior analysis of major U.S. shale gas plays: the Barnett, Fayetteville, Haynesville and Marcellus.

The main US shale gas plays objective of the update is to enhance resource assessment work that the US shale gas plays study researchers conducted with funding from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation on the four natural gas plays. The US shale gas plays study would help to ensure consistency of approach across the plays and incorporate recent data, allowing researchers to capture new market dynamics, emerging technologies and company strategies, which drive US shale gas plays resource development.

"Our current outlooks were built on relatively short production histories: six years of intense horizontal drilling in the Barnett, five years in the Fayetteville and Haynesville, and four years in the Marcellus," said Svetlana Ikonnikova, co-principal investigator of the US shale gas plays study. "Since we completed these studies, more wireline logs and core analyses have been released, allowing for more accurate geological and petrophysical characterization."

The addition of four extra years of production data for the Barnett gas play, three years of data for the Fayetteville, and two years of data for the Haynesville and Marcellus shale plays enable the study of emerging drilling and completion technologies, the university researchers said. They plan to revisit the original production scenarios performed by the Bureau of Economic Geology in order to refine well productivity analyses in each shale basin and set a consistent data year (2015) and future production year (2045) for all four basins.

Access to data on hydraulic fracturing treatment fluids, which were not available during the original analyses of the Barnett, Fayetteville, and Haynesville shale plays -- but which were found to be an important determinant of production in the analysis of the Marcellus play -- would enable enhanced well economics and field outlook analyses, they said.

The DOE grant would fund individual reports on each US shale gas plays basin based on geological analysis, decline analysis, production economics, and field outlook. In addition, a combined report would combine the outlooks from the individual US shale gas plays and discuss alternative scenarios with respect to prices, technology, and pace of drilling and other factors.
