Full Description
 
Performance Analysis of the Bakken:
A Reservoir Engineering Perspective
 
 
A vast amount of production data is currently available for Bakken wells in the Williston Basin. Various types of data can be used to predict completion efficiencies and to project ultimate recoveries.  This presentation will describe analytical techniques that are being used to evaluate the performance of Bakken wells.  In particular it will focus on how public data, daily production data, and pressure transient testing can be used to gain an understanding of Bakken performance, and it will further demonstrate how this information can be used to evaluate completion efficiency and ultimate recovery.  The most important point to be made is to move away from rate time and cumulative time techniques and to attempt to discriminate between flow capacity and completion skin by incorporating pressure estimates and more formal production analyses.
