Well Spacing & Completions Optimization Eagle Ford 2014
Improvements in completions and recovery techniques are rapidly driving the Eagle Ford towards leading the oil production per rig charts, compared to six of the major U.S. shale plays including the Permian, Bakken and Marcellus.
Oil & Natural Gas Production Per Rig By Shale Play
U.S. Energy Information Administration, Drilling Productivity Report March 2014
Even with production exceeding 1.3 million barrels of oil equivalent per day, well production between zones is highly variable, confirming that the Eagle Ford is not a simple resource and sweet spot trends combined with variable reservoir dynamics are directly impacting completions design across the Upper, Upper Middle and Middle Eagle Ford zones. This geological complexity in multiple producing zones means optimally completing and producing from wells has become increasingly commercially important yet also increasingly difficult.
Operators are now actively seeking ways to optimize production targets through an assimilation of reservoir engineering and geological data with completions design. It is vital that these subsurface complexities are understood to enable development of optimal completions as well as determining the all-important point at which incremental production justifies incremental well spacing and completions cost. These subjects continue to be the make or break of well economics.
This is why this year's Well Spacing & Completions Optimization Eagle Ford 2014 Congress is taking a particular focus on this area, with two full days of uninterrupted industry-led presentations explicitly designed to determine:
Which well design variables have the highest influence on production performance
Which geological variables are being used to optimize completions design
Which completions variables are maximizing stimulated reservoir volume and optimizing production performance
The primary mission of the Eagle Ford Well Spacing & Completions Optimization Congress 2014 is to establish how geological and reservoir data is being used to shape completions designs and improve production performance and economics of horizontal oil recovery in the Upper, Upper Middle and Middle Eagle Ford as well as the Austin Chalk and Pearsall formations. Based wholly on operator-led data with the sole focus of determining which type of completions design yields the highest recovery at the lowest cost, this year's congress is set to be the most commercially valuable and practically applicable yet.
Over two days, speakers from E&P companies actively operating in the Eagle Ford will be delivering data driven well spacing strategies to optimize overall recovery while keeping costs low, correlating geological parameters to completions design to production performance, and sharing the latest empirical results to identify which well design and frac design parameters are contributing most to production in the Eagle Ford shale.
DAY 1: IDENTIFYING WHICH WELL DESIGN FACTORS ARE CONTRIBUTING TO PRODUCTION IN THE EAGLE FORD
Day one will take an in-depth look at well spacing strategies and cluster optimization techniques that have had the highest influence on production performance to improve the long terms economics of Eagle Ford wells, with focused case studies on the Upper, Upper Middle and Middle Eagle Ford zones
DAY 2: MATCHING FRAC DESIGN TO RESERVOIR CHARACTERISTICS TO PRODUCTION PERFORMANCE
Day two will assess which geological variables are being used to optimize completions design in the Eagle Ford, the Austin Chalk and the Pearsall formations and which completions variables are maximizing stimulated reservoir volume and optimizing production performance in different Eagle Ford Zones.
WHAT'S NEW IN 2014?
BRAND NEW TOPICS BEING COVERED IN 2014
EAGLE FORD ZONES 1 - 3: Showing how different reservoir characteristics combined with well design, cluster density and proppant selection have impacted performance in the upper, upper middle and middle Eagle Ford
EAGLE FORD VS AUSTIN CHALK VS PEARSALL: Comparing how different frac fluids, proppants and pump rates are influencing production performance across the life cycle of the well in each formation
GEOMETRIC VS GEOLOGIC BASED COMPLETIONS: Scrutinizing reservoir and production data to establish the effectiveness of geologic vs. geometric based stage design
The Well Spacing & Completions Optimization Eagle Ford 2014 Congress has been strategically designed to be the only congress focusing on well spacing and completion design, with two full days of presentations wholly dedicated to completions optimization
1) EAGLE FORD ZONES 1 VS. 2 VS. 3: The congress is taking a first-of-its-kind approach to well spacing and cluster optimization for producers operating or looking to exploit multiple zones in the Eagle Ford. The congress has been designed to look at how production results vary as a result of well, frac stage and cluster density design relative to the distinctive geological characteristics of the upper, upper middle and middle Eagle Ford. Understanding how results vary across the different Eagle Ford zones will enable operators to adapt and optimize well spacing and cluster decisions as they continue to expand their production targets
2) PLAY VS. PLAY EMPIRICAL CASE STUDIES: For the first time, latest empirical studies across the Eagle Ford, Austin Chalk and Pearsall will be compared and contrasted to allow operators to understand how different frac fluids, proppants and pump rates are impacting well performance in these different plays and enable them to capitalize on the commercial opportunity that lies in fairly new formations
4) GEOMETRIC VS GEOLOGIC BASED COMPLETIONS: A session has been designed specifically to establish the effectiveness of using geologic vs. geometric based stage design to determine whether improvements in production results can justify the increased expenditure on more advanced geologic techniques
5) CORRELATING GEOLOGIC PARAMETERS AND COMPLETIONS DESIGN: Complex geology in multiple producing zones in the Eagle Ford has escalated the complexity to complete and produce from the play. The Eagle Ford Well Spacing and Completions Optimization Congress takes a correlation approach, matching geology and completions, with increased attention on assessing rock sensitivities, clay content, reservoir depth and microseismic and relating them to frac design parameters enabling operators to find out what has individual strategies to understand, enhance and fully exploit these reserves
6) MAXIMIZING PRODUCTION AND SRV: Eagle Ford operators are still sitting on 10 billion dollars worth of oil reserves that are yet to be tapped. To avoid having to spend time and money testing out individual strategies for every well, this congress is delivering outcomes gleaned so far by bringing the production results from other operators and linking them back to well spacing and cluster optimization to find out what has worked best
7) FULLY E&P LED: This is not a call for papers academic conference. The content of the conference agenda is completely E&P led, reflecting the most current, time critical challenge being faced in Eagle Ford Completions right now
