• Reservoir and Completion Characterization Leads to Improved Well and Field Economics in South Texas Eagle Ford Field

    The capital investment required when completing horizontal, unconventional reservoir wells is significant. This capital pays for materials and services which help to improve the productivity and recovery from the well. The goal of the authors’ work was to identify the primary drivers in this capital spending that affects productivity and recovery and then optimized the spending to get the most revenue for the least amount of dollars. They show how, through the characterization of reservoir properties and completion effectiveness, well and field profitability can be maximized without sacrificing recovery or productivity. A case history from beginning evaluation to the results will be presented for improving oil recovery and economic performance. 

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