Analysis of pressure behaviors and flow regimes of naturally and hydraulically fractured unconventional gas reservoirs using multi-linear flow regimes approach

Al-Rbeawi, Salam
This paper targets the applicability of multi-linear flow regimes approach in gas reservoirs having multiple porous media: matrix, natural fractures, and hydraulic fractures. The approach attempts to understand pressure profiles and flow regimes developed in some of unconventional shale layers that have already been naturally fractured. In this paper, the main focus is given to fluid flow phenomenon from the matrix towards naturally induced fractures and from these fractures to the hydraulic fractures. Studying the impact of matrix, natural fracture and hydraulic fracture parameters on reservoir performance is another objective for this paper.


Evaluation of displacement coefficient method for seismically retrofitted buildings with various ductility capacities
Dicleli, Murat (Wiley, 2014-07-25)
This research study is aimed at evaluating the accuracy of the displacement coefficient method (DCM) of FEMA 440 and associated nonlinear static procedure (NLSP) for actual buildings with soft story mechanism and various ductility capacities. The DCM and associated NLSP are evaluated using two existing seismically vulnerable buildings with soft story mechanism. The buildings are first retrofitted using a ductile steel-brace-link system to represent those with good ductility capacity and then retrofitted wit...
How much stimulated reservoir volume and induced matrix permeability could enhance unconventional reservoir performance
Al-Rbeawi, Salam (2017-10-01)
This paper investigates the impacts of stimulated reservoir volume (SRV) on reservoir performance for unconventional hydraulically fractured formations. It focuses also on the effects of different petrophysical properties of SRV as well as different volume and petrophysical properties of unstimulated part of porous media (USRV). The influences of hydraulic fracture conductivity, fracture assymmetricity, and non-Darcy flow permeability in reservoir pressure profile have been substantially studied in this pap...
Predicting the shear strength of reinforced concrete beams using artificial neural networks
Mansour, MY; Dicleli, Murat; Lee, JY; Zhang, J (Elsevier BV, 2004-05-01)
The application of artificial neural networks (ANNs) to predict the ultimate shear strengths of reinforced concrete (RC) beams with transverse reinforcements is investigated in this paper. An ANN model is built, trained and tested using the available test data of 176 RC beams collected from the technical literature. The data used in the ANN model are arranged in a format of nine input parameters that cover the cylinder concrete compressive strength, yield strength of the longitudinal and transverse reinforc...
Analysis of carbon dioxide sequestration in shale gas reservoirs by using experimental adsorption data and adsorption models
Merey, Sukru; Sınayuç, Çağlar (2016-11-01)
For carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration in depleted shale gas reservoirs or CO2 injection as an enhanced shale gas recovery technique, it is important to understand the adsorption mechanism in these reservoirs. In this study, experimental adsorption measurements for Dadas shale samples were conducted at 25 degrees C, 50 degrees C, and 75 degrees C up to approximately 2000 psia by using pure CO2 (maximum adsorption capacity 0.211 mmol/g at 25 degrees C) and pure methane (CH4) (maximum adsorption capacity 0.04...
Seismic response of base isolated liquid storage tanks to real and simulated near fault pulse type ground motions
Uçkan, Muhittin Eren; Umut, Onder; Sisman, Fatma Nurten; Karim Zadeh Naghshineh, Shaghayegh; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül (2018-09-01)
In this paper, the seismic response of base-isolated liquid storage tanks subjected to real and simulated near-fault ground motions is investigated. It is assumed that the tanks are seismically isolated by single surface Concave Sliding Bearings (CSB) with different isolation periods. For the input data, the recorded and simulated ground motions having pulse type characters and their dominant waveforms are considered.
