Abstract Understanding hydraulic fracture propagation events would enable operators to estimate the fracture geometry, understand formation/fracture interactions, and estimate the total microseismic events cloud. This paper introduces a new method for understanding the dynamic fracture propagation events using a signal processing technique. Detection of the dynamic fracture event using continuous wavelet transform (CWT) is used to train a deep learning model with microseismic events to predict this cloud for every hydraulic fracture job. The deep learning model is used for the same formation. The CWT for treatment pressure is a convolution process that involves ...

The diagnostic fracture injection test (DFIT) is widely used to obtain fracture closure pressure, reservoir permeability, and reservoir pressure during hydraulic fracturing operations. Conventional methods for analyzing DFIT data assume a vertical well drilled in ultra-low permeability reservoirs and account for potential multiple fracture closures. However, these traditional techniques have limitations and make assumptions that can conflict with each other, leading to greatly varying approximations of closure pressure and duration, especially for horizontal wells. To address this issue, a new method for detecting fracture closure pressure using continuous wavelet ...

By now, you’ve likely experimented a bit with ChatGPT. I’ve extensively discussed it in my Newsletter and shared in-depth insights on my LinkedIn feed and blog. If you haven’t done so yet, you can start by reading the ‘ChatGPT for Oil & Gas’ series, with part 1 available here . ‍ Today, we’re going to explore CustomGPTs, which are essentially the same as regular ChatGPT but tailored to a specific subject of your choosing. ‍ And the best part? You don’t need any coding skills. Within just a few minutes, the ChatGPT interface allows you to create a bot designed to engage in conversations on the particular topic you’re interested in, making ...

Not long ago, I shared a post on LinkedIn that generated a lot of interest: 👉 link to post ‍ “Do you have this dynamic PDF with well test interpretation models by the IFP? It’s awesome… Wellbore, reservoir, and boundary models are listed, with live links to pages showing their log-log response. They’re color-coded and tell you which parameters are extracted from each region of the plot.” This invaluable resource was produced by the IFP in 2002 (get it here ). However, one downside is the need to open a PDF file every time you wish to consult it, which can be inconvenient. You might not always have the file at hand, or you may need ...

Let’s continue with the ChatGPT series. So far, in the previous installments of the series, we’ve explored the language model, including text generation, proofreading, translation, and summarization. Then, we moved on to exploring ChatGPT’s advanced coding capabilities, from creating Excel VBA snippets to writing and troubleshooting Python scripts. ‍ Now, let’s turn our attention to another exciting aspect of ChatGPT: its data analytics capabilities. With its advanced data analytics plugin, ChatGPT can process and analyze large datasets, offering insights far beyond what traditional Excel data analytics can provide. This powerful feature enables users ...

It’s been more than a year since the release of ChatGPT, and I’m still shocked every time a colleague or friend tells me they aren’t using it. I hear: “But what can it really do?” “I don’t see the value” “I haven’t really needed it” “It’s not helpful in my field.” ‍ So, in this 4-part series, I want to present a few compelling examples showcasing how ChatGPT can profoundly transform your professional abilities and increase your productivity. ‍ Let's dive right into a few use cases 👉 https://www.crowdfield.net/blogposts/chatgpt-for-oil-and-gas---part-1-text ...
