Unconventional Optimized Development Strategy Workflow

Unconventional Optiumized Development Strategy Workflow

Sama Morsy presents her 2021 paper with Chevron on Unconventional Optimized Strategy Development Workflow, discussing completion design optimization due to depletion and also the preloading process to safeguard against damage to parent and child wells due to depletion and offset fracturing. She also highlights additional modeling capabilities with ResFrac and how ResFrac can be used for the optimal evaluation of completion designs.

Stress variations with depth and hydraulic fracture optimization

This month, we had a presentation from ResFrac Senior Consulting Engineer, Dr. Ankush Singh, entitled, “Stress variations with depth and hydraulic fracture optimization”. He covers material from SPE papers “Optimization of Multi-Stage Hydraulic Fracturing in Unconventional Reservoirs in the Context of Stress Variations with Depth” (https://doi.org/10.2118/201739-MS) and
“Integrated Analysis of the Coupling Between Geomechanics and Operational Parameters to Optimize Hydraulic Fracture Propagation and Proppant Distribution” (https://doi.org/10.2118/194323-MS).
