The modeling requirements for geopressured-geothermal reservoir analysis are discussed and demonstrated in this paper. Compaction effects, reservoir hetereogeneities, localized gas evolution, and shale dewatering mechanisms are implemented into a specific model. Applications which demonstrate the potential sensitivity of reservoir pressure-production behavior to these mechanisms are illustrated.
