Organic-rich and carbonate-rich Eagle Ford Shale is a self-sourced oil and gas reservoir with little alteration of gas chemistry as might be affected by petroleum expulsion and migration. As such it provides an ideal natural laboratory to quantify the compositional variation of gases generated from oil-prone type II kerogen during thermal maturation.

It’s widely known that refracturing a horizontal well can help to reduce the interaction between so-called parent and child wells by causing a high stress area around the refractured wells and diverting child well fractures away from the parent well.
