In the last decade research activity and engineering analysis of oil and gas production from shale reservoirs have shed a new light on pore scale physics of flow in low permeability reservoirs. In this talk we will present laboratory and field data to explain the mechanism of hydrocarbon production from both shale and tight sand reservoirs. This information is important in assessing the prospect of improving oil and gas recovery from such low-permeability reservoirs.
Hossein Kazemi is the Chesebro’ Distinguished Professor of Petroleum Engineering at Colorado School of Mines (CSM) and Co-director of Marathon Center of Excellence for Reservoir Studies (MCERS). He received B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in petroleum engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. Kazemi is a member of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) and a Distinguished and an Honorary Member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE). He retired from Marathon Oil Company in 2001 after serving as the Director of Production Research, Manager of Reservoir Technology, and Executive Technical Fellow. At CSM he teaches graduate courses and supervises research in reservoir modeling, well testing, and improved oil and gas recovery processes.
