Description

E&P companies in the Permian Basin typically implement basin-wide development strategies that involve cookie-cutter type methods that use multi-well pads with identical geometric stage and cluster spacing. Such development strategies however fail to recognize and account for subsurface stress heterogeneity, and thus assume similar geomechanical properties that are homogeneous and isotropic.

Minimum horizontal stress or Sh (min) is the leading parameter that controls hydraulic fracture stimulation, but is next to impossible to measure quantitatively, especially far field and in 3D space. A method is presented that calculates Sh (min) by substitution of AVO seismic inversion volumes directly into the Eaton stress equation with triaxial core values. This provides an anisotropic measurement of in-situ stress variability for fracture geometry modeling, and for engineered treatment design to prevent interwell fracture communication.

Dr. Michael Shoemaker is the Chief Geophysicist at Callon Petroleum Company with 20 years of industry experience in both conventional and unconventional plays. Current operations at Callon include geomechanical characterization of Permian Basin stacked intervals for optimal horizontal well spacing and landing, and hydraulic fracture modeling for treatment design using advanced 3D AVO seismic inversion integrated with interdisciplinary geoscience models, and reservoir and completion engineering. Before joining Callon, Dr. Shoemaker was a lead prospecting geophysicist at BP America in conventional onshore plays where significant hydrocarbons were discovered. He’s a member of SEG, AAPG and SPE, and holds a Ph.D. in Geophysics from the Missouri University of Science and Technology (formally the University of Missouri-Rolla).
