Bob spent 10 years with Schlumberger as an openhole field engineer, sales engineer, and product development manager.  While at Schlumberger he was the North American product champion for the “FracHite” and “Quantifrac” products that integrated wireline, testing, and pumping inputs to optimize hydraulic fracture treatments.  Since then he has spent 24 years consulting to over 250 companies on petrophysics and completion optimization.  He served as a SPE Distinguished Lecturer on integrating petrophysics with the hydraulic fracture treatment optimization process.  He has implemented this integration process in a wide variety of reservoirs in North America, conducting numerous field studies for operators evaluating well performance and providing "best practices" recommendations based on the study results (SPE 90483).  Recent major consulting projects have integrated petrophysics with completions in organic shale reservoirs for major operators in the, Wolfberry, Wolfbone,  Wolfcamp, Marcellus, Utica, Cline, Eagle Ford, and Bakken.  Bob has a BS from the US Naval Academy and an MBA from the University of Florida.  He is a member of the SPE, SPWLA, and the AAPG.

Full Description

 

The recovery factor analysis technique involves the integration of hydrocarbon pore volume from a core-calibrated petrophysical analysis with the estimated ultimate recovery from the horizontal lateral.  When the hydrocarbon pore volume estimates are tied to production results, a model can be developed to both identify potential refrac candidate wells and zones and to assess refrac performance.  This technique can provide a realistic comparison of the effectiveness of the refrac process using various diversion and mechanical isolation methods.  Case studies are provided to demonstrate the utility of the process.
