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.
