Ali Daneshy is president of Daneshy Consultants International and adjunct professor of petroleum engineering at the University of Houston. He has 49 years of experience in the oil and gas industry and has presented more than 50 technical papers related to hydraulic fracturing. He is an SPE Honorary Member, an SPE Distinguished Member, and has received the SPE Distinguished Service Award. He is also the co-editor-in-chief of the Hydraulic Fracturing Journal, a quarterly publication dedicated to the technology and operations of hydraulic fracturing. 

Full Description

Different types of interactions occur between adjacent horizontal wells at different stages of their life. While drilling and completing a new well in a previously fractured area, these interactions can cause stuck pipe, lost circulation, and damage to existing hydraulic fractures. During fracturing, they can cause an increase in the pressure of the passive offset shut-in wells, and migration of fracturing fluid and even proppant into them. They can also cause liner damage. Post-fracturing, they can cause swift or delayed production interference.

This presentation discusses the different types of interactions, their causes, and their expected degrees and timing of production interference. It will also explore ways of minimizing or eliminating their mechanical and physical damage to the wellbore.
