A new source of energy has recently been discovered from unconventional hydrocarbon reservoirs, such as shale gas deposits. Shale gas is found in tight porous rocks which are characterised by nano-scale size porous networks with ultra-low permeability [1,2]. The modelling of transport through such tight porous media is very challenging because it is a relatively new discipline and not much is known but transport processes in them, and little data is available; but it is a growing sector and must be addressed. Here, we apply a recently developed non-linear gas transport model , to reservoir simulations of single-phase gas through homogeneous tight rocks.
