Description

 

Fracture geometry is one of the key variables when completing multiple pay targets, such as the Middle Bakken and Three Forks members, from a single lateral, as is the case in the Williston Basin in North Dakota.  In order to provide better insights into the fracture growth characteristics, ConocoPhillips embarked on two projects with varying diagnostic methods in each to evaluate these critical parameters. The goal was to end up with a calibrated fracture growth model for the area under consideration.  The presentation will focus on the methodology, observations, and results obtained and will discuss ongoing operations for these projects.
