My research focuses on the changes in microstructure, velocity, and permeability of shale reservoir caused by thermal maturation under different temperatures and pressures. The goal of my research is to develop a laboratory technique to simulate the changes in shale’s physical properties caused by the natural maturation under different maturity and pressure conditions. The key methodology is running an ex-situ pyrolysis experiment of immature shale core samples under a confining pressure while measuring geophysical properties before and after the pyrolysis. I also apply the organic geochemical modeling to understand the changes in microstructure geophysical properties and the maturation reactions.
