About the book

"Shale Gas Production- Lessons Learned" intends to provide a critical review of the shale gas boom that started in North America. An overview of the technology history, economic challenges, and policy of shale gas development in the United States to ascertain the main factors contributing to the shale gas boom. This book welcomes but does not limit to submissions regarding:

-production; advances in decline curve analysis, determining of optimal well spacing, parent-child wells relation, frat hit, stress shadowing, well interference,
-completion; determining optimal fracture spacing, optimal pad volume, optimal proppant volume, size and type, fiber optics,
-environmental aspects; produced water management, environmentally sustainable operation, footprint, and water consumption,
-improved oil recovery; Huff and Puff gas injection, surfactant injection, pilot tests, upscaling of lab-results to pilot-scale and field-scale,
-economics; integration of gas utilization, reducing operational costs, and water treatment.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Nino Popovic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
