Effect of thermal maturity on nanomechanical properties and porosity in organic rich shales (a Bakken shale case study)
Unconventional resources (Shale Plays) have been the game changer of energy supply worldwide. The ever improving technologies and expanding of knowledge related to unconventional hydrocarbon accumulations has generated an enormous opportunity for countries with these resources towards energy self-sufficiency. For successful development of these resources, we need remote techniques that allow for spatially extensive in-situ reservoir characterization and sweet spots detection. In self-sourcing mudrocks, maturity (extent of oil generation), porosity and abundance of natural fractures are the main ...
