Description

This talk describes how Anadarko is going about optimizing their development recipe in the Delaware Basin by combining advanced data analytics with physics based modeling and field trials. The use of multiple technologies across several multi-disciplinary teams is being applied to better understand key decisions like well spacing, frac design and target lines. The result is a recommended development plan that maximizes value for each geologic area of the basin.
