In my paper, I will write about Shale & Sandstone reservoirs. I will try to investigate and compare the two reservoir rock types and relate that to their effects on hydrocarbons production.

Requirements: • 3-5 pages • double spaced • 12-point font • 1-inch margins • Minimum of three peer reviewed reference publications Important Dates: Due March 28: (5 % of project grade) • 1-2 sentence summary of paper topic • Reference list/bibliography (min. of 3 peer review papers) Due April 8: (30% of project grade) • Outline draft of your paper Grading Expectations: Papers need to be properly cited using parenthetical citations (the final paper will be submitted through ‘Turnitin’ on Moodle so an automated plagiarism check will be completed). Please use the Geological Society of America reference style ( ) and standard inline parenthetical citations e.g. ‘….some conclusions from one author (last name, published year)’, ; ‘….some conclusions from two authors (last name & last name, published year)’ or ‘….some conclusions from more than two authors (last name et al., published year). Or write it like: ‘Soso (2017) concluded…’, or ‘in their study so-so et al. (pub year) found….’ No quotations in your paper. You should synthesize the reviewed literature. References: no websites or conference abstracts. They need to be a peer review academic paper. A suggestion to help find academic papers: ‘GeoRef’ or ‘Web of Science’ databases available through the library website. ...

Shale and Sandstone Reservoir Rocks
Students Name
Institution Name




A rock or a stone is most commonly a natural substance that constitutes one or more
minerals which may include graphite. The earth's outer layer and lithosphere are composed of
rocks which make the outer cover of the earth. However, on the topic of rocks, there are reservoir
rocks which derived from their name they have the ability to store and in this care these rocks
store fluids inside their pores for a very long time. However, these fluids can be extracted from
these reservoir rocks. Petroleum of amongst one of the most common fluids to be obtained from
reservoir rocks since they produce accumulate hydrocarbons. In this case, a petroleum reservoir
if a pool of hydrocarbons that is contained within the pores of rock formations and thus in this
case petroleum reservoirs can broadly be classified as both unconventional and conventional
reservoir. The ability of these rocks to hold fluids (gas, water, and air) makes reservoir rocks
have the ability to contain vital resources that could be extracted.
