General Meeting: A New Revolutionary Technique for Understanding Far Field Fracture Effects and their Impact on Completion Strategies
ABSTRACT of Presentation
THIS REGULAR GENERAL MEETING LUNCHEON EVENT WILL BE HELD IN PERSON AND ALSO VIA WEBINAR. TO REGISTER FOR THE WEBINAR, PLEASE RETURN TO THE EVENTS PAGE FOR THE WEBINAR 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

Registration & Walk-ins
All attendees are encouraged to register and pay online for this event. This is a more efficient means of registering for the event and enables the registration process at the meeting to move much faster. Walk-in space is available on a seat-limited basis at a fee more than the on-line registration fee.
