A comprehensive study of the reserve and production potential of the Barnett Shale integrates engineering, geology, and economics into a numerical model that allows for scenario testing based on several technical and economic parameters.
Part 1 summarizes the geologic characterization, per-well decline analysis, and productivity tiering required to feed into the detailed modeling of future reserve and production forecasts.
The conclusion (Part 2) examines full field economics and production and reserve forecasts.
