Matt Czapski is a senior completion engineer at ConocoPhillips where he has worked in the Permian Shale group for the past three years.  He has provided overall completion optimization and delivery of horizontal wells in the Delaware Basin’s multiple stacked pay targets during this time.  Matt’s primary focus has been in unconventional horizontal completions with experience in multiple areas, including Haynesville, Western Canada, and Permian conventional formations.  Matt received a B.S. degree in civil engineering from Texas A&M University.


 


 

Full Description

In many unconventional reservoirs, accurately predicting effective fracture height remains one of the biggest challenges.  In thick stacked plays like the Wolfcamp formation in the Delaware Basin, effective fracture height becomes a critical factor in determining the number of stacked laterals required to successfully develop the acreage.  ConocoPhillips recently designed a vertical fracture characterization well to empirically determine and gain critical insight into created fracture height.  The presentation will review the framework, observations, and findings from this project and will offer a comparison to other diagnostics used for characterizing fracture geometry.
