The rest of the paper is arranged as follows: the mathematical and numerical model to describe the gas flow process in the specified shale gas reservoir and the component subdivision method to differentiate the effect of free gas and adsorbed gas are presented in Section 2; the contributions of free gas and adsorbed gas to the total gas production are analyzed by using "component subdivision method" and the influences of reservoir properties and hydraulic fracturing parameters on the well performance are studied in Section 3; and finally conclusions are drawn based on all the analysis results in Section 4.
