  • Completions SG - A Current Overview of Distributed Fiber-Optic Sensing in Unconventional Reservoirs

    Apr 12, 11:00 AM - 1:30 PM (CT)
    Completions Study Group Twin Hills Country Club, April 12th, 2017, 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM A Current Overview of Distributed Fiber-Optic Sensing in Unconventional Reservoirs Presented by Kevin Boone, Petroleum Engineer, OptaSense Abstract While fiber-optic technology has been used in oil and gas for decades with Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) and downhole fiber-optic gauges, Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) is relatively new to the scene. With a wide range of seismic and engineering applications, fiber-optics requires careful consideration from planning cable deployment, to data acquisition and management, to data analysis and interpretation. As the technology still matures, operators are seeing clear value from distributed fiber-optic sensing with its ability to take continuous measurements across the entire well and throughout the life of the well. Referred to in industry as the gift that keeps on giving, the full value of distributed fiber-optic sensing is realized when experts across the various oil and gas disciplines are involved in the projects and learnings. Biography Kevin Boone is a Petroleum Engineer that has been working with OptaSense for 5 years, specializing in products and services using fiber-optic distributed acoustic and temperature sensing (DAS and DTS). He has worked on dozens of fiber-optic projects across the world for various applications, with heavy involvement in project planning, execution, and analyses and interpretation of data. Kevin is currently a product manager for OptaSense’s hydraulic fracture monitoring services. He has 8 years’ experience in oilfield services with prior experience in open and cased hole reservoir evaluation. Kevin is a registered professional engineer in Alberta, Canada.

  • April SPE OKC Luncheon

    Apr 20, 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM (CT)
    April SPE OKC Monthly Luncheon Will Rogers Theater, April 20th, 2017, 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM Producing Gas-Oil Ratio Behavior of Multi-Fractured Horizontal Wells in Tight Oil Reservoirs Presented by Steve Jones, Cimarex Energy Co. Abstract Why is the GOR behaving that way? What is it telling me about the reservoir, or the completion? Why is this well different from that one? Are we pulling the well too hard? The nature of linear flow into fractures in tight rock causes the GOR to behave much differently than in conventional reservoirs. The GOR may rise rapidly when the flowing bottomhole pressure falls below the bubble point; a GOR plateau may occur during a long transient flow period; and when boundary-dominated flow is underway, the GOR rises continuously. We will look at field examples from the STACK and SCOOP plays including Meramec, Woodford, and Springer Shale. Using reservoir simulation, we explain the reasons for a wide range of GOR behavior. Then we’ll cover some practical tools to help you recognize which stage of GOR performance your well is in, and the implications for forecasting production and estimating drainage volume. The presentation is based on SPE 184397, which was recently published in SPE Reservoir Evaluation and Engineering. Biography R. Steven Jones Jr. is a Reservoir Engineering Advisor at Cimarex Energy Co. in Tulsa. Previously he was with Newfield Exploration Company, where the work in this presentation was done. He is focused on the reservoir aspects of appraising and optimizing unconventional resource plays. Projects have included well spacing, horizontal well targeting, completion optimization, and flowback analysis. He holds a BS degree from the University of Tulsa, and an MS degree from the University of Texas, both in petroleum engineering. He is a member of SPE and AAPG, and is a registered professional engineer in Oklahoma. (Eligible for PDH) Webinar Information: To Be Announced

  • Reservoir Study Group - "Numerical vs Analytical Models for EUR Calculation and Optimization"

    Apr 25, 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM (CT)
    Reservoir Study Group Twin Hills Country Club, February 28th, 2017, 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM Comparison of Numerical vs Analytical Models for EUR Calculation and Optimization in Unconventional Reservoirs Presented by Dr. Jim Erdle, Computer Modeling Group Abstract Analytical models available in Rate-Transient-Analysis (RTA) packages are widely used as fast tools for history matching and forecast in unconventional resources. In addition, recently, there has been an increasing interest in numerical simulation of unconventional reservoirs. In this study, we use both methods to history match fractured unconventional wells, followed by forecast calculations. This study aims to reveal large differences in Estimated Ultimate Recovery (EUR), predicted by analytical models and numerical simulation in unconventional reservoirs. First, we consider a single-phase shale oil reservoir as a base case for this study. The base case also satisfies other assumptions inherent in analytical models such as homogenous reservoir properties and fully-penetrating planar fractures with constant half-length and conductivity. An excellent match between results of two methods for the base model validates the simulation approach. We then impose different real-world deviations from RTA assumptions and investigate reliability of EUR predictions made by both approaches. We also examine dry gas and gas condensate shale reservoirs. In all cases, historical data and reference EURs are derived from fine-grid simulations. Example results show that, in the presence of real-world deviations from RTA assumptions, analytical models can still match the historical production data; however, key reservoir and fracture parameters need to be modified drastically to compensate lack of sufficient physics in analytical models. Results show that these history-matched models are not predictive for future production, providing highly pessimistic EURs in most real-world scenarios. For the cases presented in this study, analytical models under-predicts EURs by 10-20% although history match of two-year production looks good. This error in EUR increases drastically (up to 50-60%) as the length of historical data decreases from 2 years to 3 months. For all cases, we also apply an efficient simulation workflow for probabilistic forecasting of brown fields. This workflow provides multiple history-matched models that are constrained by historical production data. The probabilistic forecast provides P90 (conservative), P50 (most likely), and P10 (optimistic) values for EUR. In all examples, range of P90 to P10 values includes the reference EUR and the P50 values are within 7% error of the reference EUR. Biography Dr. Erdle is CMG’s Vice President for software sales and support for the USA and Latin American. He has 42 years of industry experience, primarily in reservoir and production engineering-related positions within the services and software segments of the E&P industry, since graduating from Penn State with BS and PhD degrees in Petroleum Engineering in ’71 and ’74. Jim has been involved in several recent SPE papers on the subject of modelling unconventional wells (SPE #’s 125530, 125532, 175122, 180209, 180974), and is the author of Chapter 8 (Application of Numerical Models) in the 2016 SPEE Monograph # 4 (Estimating Ultimate Recovery of Developed Wells in Low-Permeability Reservoirs).
