Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

Drawdown management is an essential element in short and long term well performance in unconventional reservoirs. With much of the value of unconventional wells occurring in the early life of the well, it is critical that an optimal drawdown strategy be implemented. Careful consideration should be given to key reservoir components and operating conditions at the surface. The initial drawdown management decisions typically occur during the flowback of new wells. Historically, these procedures have been predetermined and geared towards a “one size fits all” solution. This webinar discusses a case study in the Eagle Ford shale in which a practical drawdown management workflow was developed to maximize well deliverability. The methodology incorporates high frequency production data with rate-transient analysis and a multi-disciplinary approach to drive operational decisions during flowback. This workflow demonstrates how practical field applications of technical interpretations can be used on a daily basis to increase value and improve operational efficiencies while minimizing the potential risk of damaging the completion.
