Reservoir: Sampling a Stimulated Rock Volume: An Eagle Ford Example

Speaker: Kevin Raterman
Speaker Kevin Raterman

Kevin Raterman holds a Doctorate in Chemical Engineering from the University of Illinois. He has 35 years of upstream experience as a reservoir engineer. Currently, his responsibilities include piloting design, implementation and analysis for unconventional reservoirs.

In 2014 ConocoPhillips drilled the first of five deviated wells in DeWitt County, Texas, in order to sample the rock volume adjacent to a horizontal Eagle Ford producer prior to and immediately following hydraulic stimulation. The design, execution and results of the pilot will be described, with particular emphasis on the data acquisition program, which included core, image log, microseismic, DTS/DAS, and pressure data. The observed reservoir state preceding and following hydraulic fracturing will be discussed from an integrated perspective, emphasizing geologic, geophysical, reservoir engineering and completions related observations.
