About

This course provides in-depth background and state-of-the-art tools necessary to maximize the performance of Hz wells. Practical examples will illustrate how candidate horizontal wells are selected and designed using multi-disciplined team efforts to ensure both technical and economic benefits are maximized. Methods used to predict well performance; such as, expected producing rate, drainage area, and fluid coning will be explained through class problems. Optimization of Multi-stage Fracing of Horizontal Wells (MFHW), including the number frac stages, spacing between the frac stages, size of the fracs, and how to take advantage of the “sweet spots”, will be illustrated using advanced software. The art of well test interpretations will be discussed including the benefits of Mini frac (DFIT) to improve the frac design. The challenge of reserves estimate for tight/unconventional reservoirs using advanced decline curve analysis and probabilistic techniques will be reviewed. Excellent course notes will be provided.
