Fobex 18: “Coal Bed Methane”

CBM gases in coal has different properties with gases in the conventional reservoir. Because of the contradiction in mechanism of storing gases in the coal, the Formation Evaluation Mehod in the conventional oil and gas industry is unapplicable for CBM reservoir to calculate the gas volume in it. Gas content determination method had been developed […]


Fobex 17: “Oil Shale”

Oil Shale by Bagaskara Widi N. and team Nowadays, peoples increasly looking for compliment energy to fulfill world energy needs. In fact, that’s begin many research of renewable and clean energy vigorously. But, many problems like effective cost to exploitation and technology still being problem for renewable energy exploitation. Peoples have great dependency to fossil […]


Fobex 16: “Deep Basin Gas”

Deep basin hydrocarbon accumulation, also known as basin-centre or continous accumulation, have been recognised in the Rocky Mountain Laramide Basins of the centra-western US and in the Western Canadian Basin. Deep Basin Gas accumulations are unconventional in that they lie downdip of water-saturated rocks with no obvious impermeable barrier separating them. The porosity in such […]


Fobex 15:”Shale as a source and reservoir rock”

In conventional oil and gas accumulations, shales comprise the source rock from which hydrocarbons are generated following burial. Through geological time, these hydrocarbons migrate from the source rock, through carrier beds and ultimately accumulate in porous reservoirs (typically sandstone or carbonate) in discrete traps. These traps are typically located in structural highs on the margins […]
