Organic-rich hot shales of the Silurian Qusaiba Formation are known to have sourced oil and gas reservoirs in the Paleozoic Petroleum System in Saudi Arabia. Recently, these shales have attracted attention in terms of unconventional oil/gas reservoirs. Shale gas assessment requires evaluation of many key variables that play a role in both shale gas reservoir quality and shale gas production quality. We have reassessed all the key factors for shale gas reservoir quality by benchmarking with world-class gas-sorbed reservoirs and found that the Qusaiba hot shales’ properties fulfill almost all criteria, and therefore the Qusaiba hot shales were qualified...
