Shale Gas: Current Perspectives and Future Prospects in Turkey and the World

2014-11-17
With the increased natural gas prices and advancement in the horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing technology, there is a high interest in shale gas reservoirs in the world and in Turkey. However, gas production from shale gas reservoirs is quite different than conventional gas reservoirs because permeability in shale gas reservoirs is very low and production mechanism is different due to adsorbed gas and free gas together in these reservoirs. The aim of study is to clarify shale gas reservoirs in terms of the world and Turkey's shale gas potential, gas production mechanism, and current techniques applied.

In recent years, unconventional reserves such as shale gas reservoirs have become a major alternative source of energy in the world. It is known that Turkey has shale gas potentials especially in the Southeastern and Thrace region. In shale gas reservoirs, significant amounts of natural gas exist as conventional “free” gas in porous spaces as well as “adsorbed” gas on shale matrix. Understanding adsorption capacities and behaviors of shale gas reservoirs may help exploitation and resource evaluation. In thi...
Drilling of gas hydrate reservoirs
Merey, Sukru (2016-09-01)
With the consumption of conventional hydrocarbon reserves and advancement in drilling technology, recently there is a high interest in gas hydrates in the world. Due to lack of experience and sensitive nature of gas hydrates, drilling in gas hydrate reservoirs were considered as risky. However, recent drilling data in gas hydrates shows that successful drilling operations in gas hydrate reservoirs are possible with some special measurements such as specially designed drilling fluid and cement slurry etc. In...
Quantification of the uncertainties in shale gas reservoirs, a case study for Dadas shale formation
Topçu, Görkem Yusuf; Akın, Serkan; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2013)
In the world of a decreasing conventional oil and gas resources and high energy prices, the unconventional gas resources has become a new focus of interest of the oil and gas industry. Especially, after the American shale gas revolution, both the industry and the economies are trying to explore and exploit their potential resources. Also, Turkey is one of the lucky countries that are known to have important shale gas resources at subsurface. Up to date, Dadas shale formation in the Southeastern Anatolian ba...
Production peformance analysis of coal bed methane, shale gas, and tight gas reservoirs with different well trajectories and completion techniques
Erturk, Mehmet Cihan; Sınayuç, Çağlar; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2013)
The large amount of produced oil and gas come from conventional resources all over the world and these resources are being depleted rapidly. This fact and the increasing oil and gas prices force the producing countries to find and search for new methods to recover more oil and gas. In order to meet the demand, the oil and gas industry has been turning towards to unconventional oil and gas reservoirs which become more popular every passing day. In recent years, they are seriously considered as supplementary ...
Assessing uncertainties and managing risks in shale gas projects
Tuğan, Murat Fatih; Sınayuç, Çağlar; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2017)
New millennium’s oil industry met the production from shale oil and shale gas formations as a revolution, a game changer which certainly have taken attention of most investors. However, shale oil and shale gas projects generally have marginal economics, hence should be carefully analyzed from the economic standpoint. To analyze the economics of a shale oil or shale gas play, generating an economically recoverable resource (ERR) probability function showing the full uncertainty range is highly important. Fur...
