With the KView™ Suite, Seismos directly measures the subsurface fracture system stage by stage. Analyzing the data provides measures of near wellbore and far-field complexity, conductivity, and fracture length.
Seismos methodology computes an effective fracture half-length per stage. On the well below, certain stages demonstrate different behaviors across the lateral. In this well, a single treatment design across the lateral leads to less than optimal frac performance.
Strong correlations between KView™ suite analysis and sonic log properties demonstrate that geo-mechanical properties across the lateral are driving the development of near wellbore fracture complexity.
Additional details on the case study are presented at URTeC 2018 and in July 2018 issue of the E&P Magazine.
