Abstract

As a major supplement to conventional fossil fuels, unconventional oil and gas resources have received significant attention across the globe. However, significant challenges need to be overcome in order to economically develop these resources, and new technologies based on a fundamental understanding of flow and transport processes in unconventional reservoirs are the key. This special issue collects a series of recent studies focused on the application of novel technologies and theories in unconventional reservoirs, covering the fields of petrophysical characterization, hydraulic fracturing, fluid transport physics, enhanced oil recovery, and geothermal energy.
