Digital Rock Physics Provide Critical Insights to Characterize Eagle Ford, February 2011

(February 2011) HOUSTON–Much of the understanding about how shale reservoirs store and flow hydrocarbons has come from high resolution imaging of very small pores, especially within the shale’s kerogen component. Pioneering work by the University of Texas at Austin’s Bureau ...

Technology reveals "inevitable surprises" in shale plays

(November, 2010) Growing knowledge about US shale plays and other unconventional resources suggests heterogeneity might be a more important factor than previously thought. Hart E&P Magazine, article by Jim Sledzik, Energy Ventures; Henrique Tono, Ingrain; and Douglas Gibson; Fotech Solutions.

Inside Ingrain Q3 Newsletter

    In a shale system, it is vital to know the relative permeability of oil and gas that is above the bubble point. Critical gas saturation matters to production engineers and reservoir engineers in planning for production and estimating ...
