Description

“Stimulation Evaluation – How Well Did I Do?”
Twenty Years of Evaluating Stimulation Treatment Effectiveness in
Low Permeability Reservoirs

Millions of dollars are spent annually stimulating oil and gas wells.  How does an engineer know if he is achieving the highest possible level of production for a well?  Is he spending too much money for the production increase obtained?  How does he explain to his reservoir group why they have a 50 ft hydraulic fracture when they were designing for 500 ft?  This presentation will focus on stimulation effectiveness analyses for oil and gas wells from numerous and diverse producing horizons as performed by the speaker over the past twenty years.  Emphasis will be placed on characterizing both the quality of the reservoir (permeability-thickness) as well as the stimulation treatment performance in order to truly understand how effective the treatment has been.  Instead of simply comparing pre-stimulation and post-stimulation well performance, the emphasis will be on examining the degree to which the well’s production potential was realized.  Methodologies for performing these analyses will be discussed in detail.
