Although shale gas exploration and development have witnessed a revolutionary breakthrough in the USA recently, more than 50% of natural gas production is from tight sand
These wells were to target tight sand
and shale Fms - which do not produce under normal conditions.
Ikon''s CEO Martyn Millwood Hargrave said: "We are pleased to further our partnership with Durham University and to foster multidisciplinary applied research into the new challenges in reservoir characterisation and reservoir monitoring, particularly those related to shales, carbonates, tight sand
reservoirs and reservoir based Carbon storage.
shale gas, shale oil and tight sand
gas, for future development.
"The Dhahran Technology Center will integrate the competencies of engineers and scientists from the Saudi oil and gas industry, King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals and Baker Hughes to develop application-specific technologies for complex reservoirs, including the tight sand
plays of Saudi Arabia," explained Nouh.- TradeArabia News Service
Geologists for decades have known about the natural gas found in shales, tight sand
and coal beds.
"The track was very quick, tight sand
, but I really enjoyed it," said Dettori.
It holds an average of 50% interest in the Tishomingo gas field in Oklahoma and varied interests in three other areas in the Northern and Central regions of the United States, where it is currently pursuing the exploration, development and production of shale and tight sand
Ismail has significant skills and experience directly and readily applicable to Drillsearch's Cooper- Eromanga Basin holdings including well testing analysis, reserves evaluation, gas-condensate reservoirs (including tight sand
fraccing), mature oil fields re-development, water flooding, enhanced oil recovery, gas injection, and production optimization.
KEC will benefit from East West Petroleum's technologies in identifying resource plays such as GBM, shale gas, shale oil and tight sand
gas, for development.
