George E. King is a Registered Professional Engineer in Texas (2012) and Oklahoma (1977) with 47 years oilfield experience since starting with Amoco Production Research in 1971. He is Apache Corporation’s Distinguished Engineering Advisor, providing training and engineering support on field-based problems.  His technical background includes research on energized fracturing, workovers, chemicals, well integrity, horizontal well completions and unconventional formations.  Publications include over 80 presented and published papers, book chapters and articles. His education includes Bachelor of Science degrees in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering and a master in Petroleum Engineering from University of Tulsa (1982). He taught petroleum engineering classes as an adjunct professor for eleven years at University of Tulsa from 1988 to 1998, while working for Amoco. 

Full Description

Fracture-driven well-to-well communication (FDC) is not new, having first been seen between fractured vertical wells in the 1950’s; however; with the increasing use of horizontal wells with closely spaced transverse hydraulic fractures in naturally fractured formations such as shale, the incidence of FDC is increasing.  This presentation summarizes investigative work carried out by Apache in the past two years, looking at significant causes, workable methods of decreasing the frequency and magnitude of the interference, and evaluation of ways to restore production.
