When it comes to optimum stimulation results for unconventional reservoirs, many times a thorough understanding of the capabilities of the stimulation fluids package can have a large impact on the outcome. Can the ROI of a well be impacted by engineering the fracturing fluid to improve the Propped Reservoir Volume (PRV) as opposed to being focused only on the Stimulated Reservoir Volume (SRV)? Can proper background knowledge that leads to correct decisions with respect to the stimulation treatment influence why some wells product at higher rates than others? What are some common fluids related causes of conductivity damage and how can these be avoided? How do we learn from our previous decisions and implement change to better improve productivity from through engineered stimulation fluid design? This accelerated course will answer these questions as well as cover the following topics:
Stimulation fluids use and technique in unconventional reservoirs (Slickwater friction reducers including High Viscosity FRs, gelling agents, biocides, scale inhibitors, flowback enhancers, etc.)
Optimizing ROI for unconventional wells through fracturing fluid selection
Proppant pack conductivity damage caused by FRs
Using learnings from historic fracturing data, derived through Artificial Intelligence (AI) to generate higher BOE/ft. from future wells.
