PEH:Tight Gas Reservoirs - PetroWiki


Actually, the definition of a tight gas reservoir is a function of many factors, each relating to Darcy's law. The main problem with tight gas reservoirs is that they do not produce at economic flow rates unless they are stimulated--normally by a large hydraulic fracture treatment. Eq. 7.1 illustrates the main factors controlling flow rate.
