Title: Technology in the Permian Basin: Microseismic-based Reservoir Simulation
Description: With a variety of fracture diagnostics technologies available, it is important to validate interpretations and recommendations independently. Understanding how the reservoir reacts to a particular combination of treatment parameters and optimizing the design based on those observations has been key.
In this month’s webcast, a lookback study is reviewed for a three-well pad in the Midland Basin using historic production data, well logs, PVT, and core data, as well as other available offset well data. Initial project goals included determining optimum vertical and lateral wellbore spacing as well as evaluating the completion design in terms of cluster spacing and stage length for wells landed in the Middle Spraberry, the Lower Spraberry, and the Wolfcamp A shales.

Title: Estimating Production and Drainage Volume From Multiple Stacked Wells – A Permian Case Study
Description: In this webcast, we will explain how microseismic-derived permeability enhancement results are integrated with PVT, core and well-log data to build a detailed reservoir simulation model for an 8-well pad in the Permian. We will describe how individual well productivities (PIndex) are predicted and subsequently calibrated using actual production data (i.e., history matching). Then we will show how the resulting reservoir drainage patterns (DIndex) were used to evaluate wellbore spacing and completion designs.
