Description

EVENT CANCELLED

This presentation will demonstrate XTO’s approach to optimizing well spacing and stacking in the Bakken through an integrated data acquisition program that directly measures wetted fracture geometries and reservoir drainage. It will discuss the previous development strategy, uncertainties in development plans, and how the current pilot program reduced the uncertainties. It will also describe the pilot program design, diagnostic technologies employed, including fiber optics, pressure gauge arrays, and radioactive proppant tracing/logging, along with data analyses and interpretation. Data from the project demonstrated the fundamental relationship between cluster efficiency, wetted fractures, propped fractures, and conductive fractures that contribute to production. Acquired diagnostic data were used to calibrate fracturing and reservoir simulation models for future completion optimization, resulting in significant capex reduction by allowing larger well spacing and reduced fresh water usage in XTO’s Bakken acreage.
