Unconventional reservoir development has significant challenges.  The use of bottom hole pressure data can contribute greatly to knowledge of the reservoir and assist with well spacing and completion design decisions.

This talk will focus on the information that can be obtained utilizing multiple pressure gauges in both vertical and horizontal wells.

  • Vertical observation well
    • Falloff testing post frac hit – frac energy propagation both laterally and vertically
    • Interference testing – fracture orientation and communication both laterally and vertically
  • Horizontal observation well with gauges spaced along the lateral
    • Especially useful when multiple frac designs are implemented along the lateral in an offset well. Interference testing can provide initial communication as well as how each design’s resultant communication changes over time.



Mark Murray joined Sage Rider in August 2019 as a Sr. Reservoir Engineering Advisor. He has 39 years of well-rounded petroleum engineering experience with emphasis in reservoir engineering in both conventional and unconventional reservoirs with primary focus on pressure analysis.  Prior to joining Sage Rider, he spent seven years with Pioneer Natural Resources working unconventional plays in south Texas and the Permian Basin. He has designed and analyzed all types of well tests for oil and gas reservoirs around the world including specialized unconventional reservoir testing, on-site drill stem test supervision, and has authored/presented well testing courses for both conventional and unconventional reservoirs. Mr. Murray holds a B.S. in Petroleum Engineering from Texas A&M University and is a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers.
