Jon Spencer has 38 years in the oil patch. After obtaining an engineering degree he spent 15 years with Halliburton Logging Services performing open hole, cased hole and production logging services in Texas, South America, Mid East and Far East before joining Tracerco in 1993 where he worked in various technical and managerial roles in Texas, Alberta and Brazil leading the reservoir tracer technology group.


Currently as Technical Advisor for Reservoir & Completion Tracer Technologies, he is designing and analyzing waterflood and frac tracer projects for wells throughout the world. 


Mr. Spencer has collaborated on three SPE papers and is co-sponsor of the patent on oil tracer technology for hydraulic stimulation production measurements.

Full Description

The evolution to horizontal wellbores requires a similar evolution in measuring and monitoring wellbore production. Tools commonly used in vertical wellbores have not been adequately indicating horizontal production characteristics, and in many cases have not been utilized due to cost.  However, an approach taken by trending the internal wellbore data during the initial phase of production, and in some cases long-term monitoring, has provided insights to wellbore operational characteristics that can be modeled in the new complex hydraulic fracture simulators being incorporated in the design and optimization of infill wellbores to better understand the rock properties, wellbore effect on nearby wells and EURs. With many operators moving to infill well development, an option to monitor the stimulation effect on the new and existing wellbores by the use of tracers is opening the evaluation of the rock properties to new understanding.  This presentation will be focused on a review of Production Log responses compared to Tracer production to highlight the difference between a discrete measurement and a production trend over time.

 

Case histories will be shown that show the productive performance as indicated by tracer production against production logging tools with commentary on the correlations and discrepancies.
