Description

Horizontal Well Production Analysis
 
Numerous horizontal well completion techniques are being employed in the industry today.  The successful completion of horizontal wells presents unique challenges that extend all the way back to initial well permitting and continue through the life of the well.  In low permeability reservoirs the horizontal well is commonly fracture stimulated before it is placed on production.  Determining the effectiveness of the completion is necessary in order to evaluate the productive potential of the reservoir.  This presentation will examine several techniques that can be used to evaluate the completion efficiency of horizontal wells that have been completed with multiple transverse fractures, including horizontal well production analysis, corresponding vertical well performance, and various industry “rules of thumb”.
