Natural gas resources a vital and relatively clean component to world energy supply are consumed as both gases and as liquids extracted from the gas across all sectors of the economy.A discussion on the theory and field practice to understand process-based mechanisms and their applications as advanced techniques employed to improve recovery covers the fractal-based approaches to flow and transport in complex reservoirs; novel numerical methods and modelling to EOR; fracture characterization and hydraulic fracturing; transport properties in single- and dual-porosity tight-gas reservoirs; capillarity in EOR; and geochemical geophysical and microbial approaches to unconventional gas reservoir characterization and recovery.
