During GeoConvention, local geoscientist Eric Keyser presented his case study that highlighting the importance of geophysics to the rest of the asset team when drilling horizontal wells.
Predicting Frac Effectiveness Using Azimuthal Gathers
He demonstrated his interpretation methods to reduce the range of uncertainty when drilling horizontal wells to maximize production and minimize risk. His case study shows the correlation between azimuthal vectors derived from azimuthal gathers and frac effectiveness based on breakdown pressures.
He has graciously agreed to allow us to present a portion of his case study, Predicting Frac Effectiveness Using Azimuthal Gathers at the upcoming URTeC Conference in Houston from July 23-25.
If you’re going to be attending, we’ll be presenting the case study twice daily at Booth 2006.
