Enhanced Production from Frac & Soak in Organic-Rich Shales: Theory, Quantifying the Benefits, and Identifying Candidates

While investigating organic-rich shales, operators noted an increase in hydrocarbon production and a decrease in water production after well shut-in. This is contradictory to conventional reservoir expectations following a shut-in. Investigation of this phenomenon was undertaken as part of various joint industry projects, and a working model for the mechanism of clay desiccation and enhanced production through well shut-in has been developed. An alliance has been formed with Texas A&M University to further research this phenomenon. This presentation will discuss common questions about desiccation and soaking, including the identification of soaking candidates and methods for quantifying the benefits.

 

Registration for this event closes at 6:00 PM CDT on Monday, October 15, 2018.

Stacy McWhorter graduated from Grantham University with a BS in engineering management technology and an MBA. She joined Core Laboratories in 2007 and has since worked in the areas of data management, modeling, and applications. Most recently, she has worked on the integration of multidisciplinary datasets to qualify the prospectivity of producing fields and formations. She is the principal investigator in a study on desiccation in mudstones and its impact on completion and production. She has also worked in multidisciplinary data analysis and management and high resolution virtual petrography. She is an industry expert in the geochemical controls on mudstone properties and the application of this knowledge in reservoir characterization and exploitation.
