Full Description
Engineering and Evaluation of Stimulation Treatments
in the Eagle Ford Shale
 
Unconventional reservoirs, the Eagle Ford shale in particular, require a completion strategy that is reservoir specific.  Completion analogies in similar reservoirs are a good place to start, but care must be taken to fine-tune design parameters which may have a significant impact on production.  Completion engineers need to work closely with the geologist and reservoir engineer to understand how to use reservoir information to design effective completions.  Understanding rock properties (YM, embedment, Brinell Hardness, etc.), mineralogy (clay content, TOC, Brittleness Index, kerogen, etc.), and type of productive hydrocarbon (oil, condensate, dry gas, etc.) are all needed to properly apply the correct treatment type (water frac, hybrid, or conventional fracturing fluid system).  Analyzing the production and completion efficiency is extremely important so that improved design changes can be made based on quantifiable evaluations as opposed to qualitative comparisons.
 
This presentation will discuss some of the current completions strategies and production evaluation techniques currently being used in the Eagle Ford shale, with the primary focus in the high liquid production areas.
