This paper demonstrates that formulation beyond the usual is required for rigorous modeling of flow through hydraulically-fractured shale-gas reservoirs. This challenging task is demonstrated here by considering the transport of gas in nano-permeability shale-gas reservoirs, including absorption, adsorption, pore-confinement, and alteration of gas properties. This leads to significant deviations from the conventional treatment.
