Description

 
Shale Reservoir Properties – Implications for Horizontal Well Completions
 
 
Shale reservoir properties can have a significant impact on horizontal well completion strategies and ultimate productivity.  Key properties that impact productivity are bulk or system permeability, fractures, geochemical maturity, hydrocarbons-in-place, reservoir pressure, reservoir thickness, reservoir heterogeneity, closure stress profile, and matrix permeability, to name a few.  Examples of these properties and their variations in various shale reservoirs will be presented, along with their impact on horizontal completion strategies.  It is important that these reservoir parameters be fully identified before locating the lateral and optimizing the fracture stimulation design for horizontal wells.
