Unconventional Reservoir Geomechanics discusses a variety of approaches on how to develop geomechanical models and predict hydrocarbon extraction for unconventional reservoirs. Starting with a full explanation of a more unified theoretical framework that discusses permeability characterization, the authors then offer a full range of new modelling solutions that are followed by a series of lab and field-scale applications. Going a step further, other applications, such as CO2 sequestration in coal seam or shale gas reservoirs, are explained to illustrate how unconventional reservoir geomechanics can be extended to solve related and more complex challenges. Combining both theoretical and practical models backed by data, this book gives reservoir engineers a smarter and more sophisticated tool to approach today's more complex geomechanical modeling challenges.

Author Biography

Jishan Liu is a professor in the School of Mechanical and Chemical Engineering at the University of Western Australia. His primary interest is in the area of unconventional geomechanics with applications to coal seam gas, shale gas, and tight gas extractions, CO2 sequestration in coal seams, caprock sealing capcity, and coal mine safety. His specialties are modelling and experimentation of coupled processes in these areas of applications. Derek Elsworth is a professor of Energy and Geo-Environmental Engineering in the Department of Energy and Mineral Engineering at Penn State. His interests are in the areas of computational mechanics, rock mechanics, and in the mechanical and transport characteristics of fractured rocks, with application to geothermal energy, the deep geological sequestration of radioactive wastes and of CO2, unconventional hydrocarbons including coal-gas, tight-gas shales and hydrates, and instability and eruption dynamics of volcanoes.
