... routinely by numerous companies to predict the mechanical properties, density, and associated TOC of many formations, there is yet to be a direct link made between TOC loss, kerogen conversion, and the associated changes in rock properties. This work documents the importance of TOC loss during maturation...

Paper presented at the SPE/AAPG/SEG Unconventional Resources Technology Conference, August 1–3, 2016
Paper Number: URTEC-2461404-MS
... Abstract Facing declining production, the U.S. started looking for new unconventional resources. Shale gas and oil are considered to be the future of the U.S. energy industry. One of the biggest factors governing the success of shale development is maturity. Thermal maturity not only reflects...

Paper Number: URTEC-2152372-MS
... Summary There is general agreement across industry regarding the importance of thermal maturity as one of the key parameters defining core areas in unconventional plays. In such plays, the process of organic maturation has implications for both source and reservoir potential. From a source rock...
