• Hydraulic Fracture Geometry, Morphology, and Parent-Child Interactions: Bakken Case Study

    With the continued advances in fiber-optic technologies, we can now measure cluster-level fracture behavior at the wellbore and in the far-field. Recently developed low-cost, pressure-based technologies enable high-volume data acquisition but may not provide the same level of detail compared to microseismic and fiber-optic measurements. This paper presents a case history that details the application of deployable fiber optics to characterize fracture geometry and morphology using microseismic and strain data. It also presents results from Sealed Wellbore Pressure Monitoring (SWPM) (Haustveit et al. 2020), comparing the lower-cost SWPM technology to the higher-cost deployable fiber. 

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