Production of oil from organic shale reservoirs is a function of porosity, hydrocarbon saturation, pore pressure, matrix permeability, and hydraulic fracture surface area plus fracture conductivity. Hydraulic fracture surface area, porosity, saturations and pore pressure dominate initial production rates. Matrix permeability becomes increasingly important in sustaining production later in time.
