The exploitation of non-conventional reservoirs have their own approach and techniques different than the ones used for the exploitation of conventional resources. The successful development of unconventional fields needs an estimation of the OOIP and knowing the physical process that allows the fluid movement from fractures to wellbore, that will define the recovery factor.
