Title

Introduction to Shale and Tight Oil Reservoirs

Abstract

This chapter introduces the basic definitions for shale and tight oil reservoirs. It also describes the main geological characteristics of such unconventional resources and discusses the production techniques used to develop them. Moreover, it explains the main problems, which make the oil recovery in such reservoirs so low. This chapter presents the necessity of using improved oil recovery (IOR) methods, as well as some issues and options during the IOR process.
