Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

Typical North American shale wells are characterized by long horizontals and multiple stages of hydraulic fracturing. In most cases, the completions and production is left unmonitored. This requires the completion and reservoir engineers to assume that the fracs are being placed and are productive as designed, without any confirmation. In few select cases, the number of fractures has been determined with pressure diagnostics, radioactive tracers, or permanent fiber optic monitoring.

This presentation will discuss an additional method which uses Distributed Temperature (DTS) with an intervention. This new method takes advantages of the fact that the cooling from a hydraulic fracture remains in the reservoir for long periods of time (months). Presented by Kyle Friehauf.
