Description

A breakthrough pressure monitoring technique using an offset sealed wellbore as a monitoring source has enabled the quantifying of hydraulic fracturing cluster efficiencies in real-time. Over 1,500 stages have been monitored using the technique. Sealed Wellbore Pressure Monitoring (SWPM) is a low-cost, non-intrusive method used to evaluate and quantify fracture growth rates and fracture-driven interactions during hydraulic fracturing. The measurements can be made with only a surface pressure gauge on a monitor well. SWPM can be applied to improve the understanding of hydraulic fractures in the following ways: 

  • Qualitative cluster efficiency/fluid distribution
  • Fracture count in the far-field
  • Fracture height and fracture half-length
  • Depletion identification and mitigation
  • Fracture model calibration
  • Fracture closure time estimation 

The technique has been validated using low-frequency Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) strain monitoring, microseismic monitoring, video-based downhole perforation imaging, and production logging. This presentation will review multiple SWPM case studies collected in the Anadarko Basin (Meramec) and the Permian Delaware Basin (Wolfcamp and Leonard/Avalon).
