Full Description
 
Shale Well Performance Analysis and Experience in the Arkoma Woodford
 
 
Active development of the Arkoma Woodford Shale is underway utilizing horizontal well completions.  Understanding the parameters that inform decisions on well spacing, well performance, and recovery factor are critical early on.  A new approach to performance analysis was pioneered on a large sample of Woodford wells to address well spacing and the forecasting of production.  Productivity indices were developed employing a "lumped parameter" approach as a way to address the impact of these parameters, and the associated uncertainties, on production and recoveries.  While often times these wells are in linear flow for years, this approach can still be used to narrow uncertainty and inform key development decisions.  These physics-based predictive forecast models were built using the lumped parameters for permeability, frac spacing, and frac area sampled stochastically with input and reconciliation from completion engineers, geologists, and reservoir engineers.  This presentation will review the theory, workflow, and well examples.
