ABSTRACT of Presentation

THIS REGULAR GENERAL MEETING LUNCHEON EVENT WILL BE HELD IN PERSON AND ALSO VIA WEBINAR. TO REGISTER FOR THE IN-PERSON MEETING, PLEASE RETURN TO THE EVENTS PAGE FOR THE IN-PERSON LINK

In recent years, mechanical specific energy (MSE) has been used to assess mechanical properties of rocks. It is further known that changes in reservoir pressure will also influence MSE. A new process was developed that analyzes a modified mechanical specific energy, and identifies anomalous increases in MSE, which represent drilling through a depleted fracture often caused during the fracture and production of an offset parent well.  This talk will describe the process and discuss several case studies  where fractures were successfully validated with this process using nothing but standard drilling data, without the use of any additional tools being run in the wellbore. This new revolutionary technique will provide significant impact, not only in designing completions for parent-child well pairs, but will also further the understanding of far field fracture effects such as the extent of fracture extension, depletion around a fracture, and implications for well spacing
