The RealGas and RealGasH2O options of the TOUGH+ code for the simulation of coupled fluid and heat flow in tight/shale gas systems

George Moridis and Craig M. Freeman. Computers and Geosciences. October 2013.

Summary

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed and demonstrated new computer codes to the TOUGH+ family of codes. These two equations of state options, RealGas and RealGasH20, allow the study of flow and transport of fluids and heat over a wide range of time frames and spatial scales in tight and shale gas reservoirs. This work was conducted as part of the Subsurface Migration Modeling research project.
