One of the major challenges of unconventional shale reservoirs is to understand the effects of organic richness (total organic carbon, TOC), mineralogy, microcracks, pore shape, and effective stress on elastic properties. The generation of petrophysical parameters, s...
This study of Offshore Malaysia outlines a workflow to increase the availability of high resolution time-depth information, in a cost effective manner through use of rock physics modelling and well-to-seismic ties on pre-existing well log data.

All rocks are anisotropic to some degree. Sedimentary basins worldwide comprise 80% of shales. Shales are anisotropic usually with vertically transverse isotropy (VTI). The rocks in many of the basins of the Asia Pacific region have been measured to have strong anisotropy...
One of the key exploration risks along the margin is to understand the pressure regime. This understanding is both vital for well design but also for de-risking of traps for hydraulic breach for instance.
Clearly pressure prediction h...
Sweet spot identification for source rocks involve detection of organic rich, high porous facies combined with brittleness, which is prone for hydraulic fracturing for optimized production. The current study focuses on identifying the best shale out of three shale plays (...
Successful exploitation of unconventional shale reservoirs depend on the integration of multi-disciplines between geoscientists and engineers. Here, we applied an integrated approach for Green River and Irati shales characterization. Understanding of micro-structu...
