• Application of Disposable Fiber Technology to Evaluate Far-Field Communication and Fracture Performance in the Marcellus Shale 

    This paper will discuss a new, low-cost option now available to conduct cross well monitoring and microseismic evaluation of offset completions using a disposable optical fiber that requires minimal equipment to deploy into the wellbore. It reduces surface impact during the operational phase, provides quality strain information with excellent quality microseismic data when compared to other fiber-optic deployment methods, and can be disposed of at the conclusion of the operation with no detriments or impediments to the completion of the well. It was demonstrated to provide valuable data for the purposes of understanding the impact of hydraulic fracturing on far-field communication and evaluating both the temporal fracture response and zonal impact caused by structural changes across the lateral. 

    This presentation is from the 2022 SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference and Exhibition.
