Title: Unconventional gas recovery symposium

Abstract

The objective of the SPE and DOE in organizing this symposium has been to bring together in a single annual meeting the best of the professional community engaged in unconventional gas recovery technology. The first venture will focus on discussions of the realities and potentials of unconventional gas sources and an exchange of technology developments. Unconventional gas sources are expected to have an important impact on new gas supplies as technological developments rapidly emerge and become mature technologies in the recovery of natural gas from coal, tight formations, Devonian shale geopressured reservoirs and other alternative high-cost gas sources. It is hoped that this symposium will provide a state-of-art perspective on geology, exploration and production research, recovery technology and field test results. Separate abstracts have been prepared for individual articles for inclusion in the Energy Data Base.

  • This conference contains 51 papers and 4 abstracts of papers presented at the symposium on unconventional gas recovery. Some of the topics covered are: coalbed methane; methane recovery; gas hydrates; hydraulic fracturing treatments; geopressured systems; foam fracturing; evaluation of Devonian shales; tight gas sands; propping agents; and economics of natural gas production. All papers have been abstracted and indexed for the Energy Data Base.
  • This conference proceedings contains 55 papers of which 4 appear as abstracts only. All papers are abstracted separately. Topics covered include: geologic study of fractured gas fields; aerial photography for location of drilling sites; evaluation of Devonian shales; glacial loading; assessment of coalbed methane in U.S.; tight gas research and development; methane recovery; foam fracturing; hydraulic fracture treatment design; geopressured reservoirs; fracture propagation; economics of gas production; and choosing proppants.
  • This book presents the papers given at a symposium on the recovery of natural gas from unconventional sources. Topics considered at the symposium included tight sandstones, Devonian shales, hydraulic fracturing, coalbed methane, gas hydrates, interference testing, naturally fractured reservoirs, gas condensate wells, formation damage, hydraulic fracture mechanics, and computerized simulation.
  • The International Unconventional Gas Symposium was held on May 14--20, 1995 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama where 52 reports were presented. These reports are grouped in this proceedings under: geology and resources; mine degasification and safety; international developments; reservoir characterization/coal science; and environmental/legal and regulatory. Each report has been processed separately for inclusion in the Energy Science and Technology Database.
  • This document contains papers that were presented at the Department of Energy's contractor meeting on Unconventional Gas Recovery. The meeting was hosted by the Morgantown Energy Technology Center on November 18-19, 1985, at the Ramada Inn in Morgantown, West Virginia. Emphasis was on activities related to the development of Eastern Gas Shales, Coalbed Methane, and Western Gas Sands. The objectives of this conference were the following: to review the current status in various research activities; to promote technical information exchange among researchers; and to focus on technical issues remaining. Eighty-five individuals from academia, industry, national laboratories, and Government participated inmore » the review. Twenty-nine presentations were made during the two-day conference. All papers have been processed for inclusion in the Energy Data Base.« less
