Abstract
AN ALREADY EXISTING HIGHLY ACCURATE, VERY SENSITIVE FLOW METER WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR DOWNHOLE WIRELINE APPLICATIONS. THE FEASIBILITY OF USING THE FLOWMETER IN EASTERN GAS SHALE RESERVOIRS WILL BE EXAMINED. THE FLOWMETER WILL BE USED IN NEWLY DRILLED, RECENTLY STIMULATED AND ALREADY PRODUCING SHALE WELLS IN AN ATTEMPT TO ASSESS ITS FEASIBILITY IN LOCATING ZONES IN THE SHALES THAT PRODUCE GAS, AND ACCURATELY QUANTIFYING THE GAS FLOW FROM THESE ZONES. AN INSTRUMENT OF THIS TYPE IS NEEDED BECAUSE NO CURRENTLY AVAILABLE LOGGING TOOLS ACCOMPLISH THIS TASK.
