Stress Shadow and ISIP Productivity Optimization Techniques

Stress Shadow and ISIP Productivity Optimization Techniques

Rosemary Jackson
When fractures are open and propped as volume is stimulated, the build-up of stress shadow along the well bore may increase treatment pressures on the order of 1000 psi. If stages are developed too quickly, you can elevate the stress shadow to the point of increasing geomechanical barriers.

I’m Being Followed by a Stress Shadow

I’m Being Followed by a Stress Shadow

The hydraulic fracturing of wells to create tight cluster spacing in low permeability shale formations develops a dynamic buildup of stress that increases as stages move along the length of the well bore. One of those stressors, the stress shadow, is a dynamic pressure that exhibits when you’re fracking the well.

Today, hear from CEO, Troy Ruths as he discusses well spacing and stage design including proppant per foot, perf diameter, fluid per cluster, stress shadow, and other relevant concerns. Lowering upfront capital investment for better capital efficiency is directly tied to the stage design of full cube development.

Setting the Stage for Optimal Well Spacing Performance

Setting the Stage for Optimal Well Spacing Performance

Stage design, the incremental placing of wells in a cube or well pad, includes decisions focused on well spacing and economic analysis. Petro.ai allows for capital efficiency and well spacing options to be explored through integrated applications that address the geomechanical aspect of understanding the stress regime along the well-bore trajectory and the operational aspect accounting for friction, the perforation pressure drop and stress shadow.

Well Spacing and Capital Efficiency

Well Spacing and Capital Efficiency

Well spacing in the cube, multi-well pad operations continue to confound the industry. Reducing surface costs have been managed by years of engineering modifications. The subsurface, though, provides continuing cost challenges. The leaders in shale understand that capital efficiency is directly tied to development and understanding of the subsurface.

Chase the Cube Not the Well

Chase the Cube Not the Well

Optimizing total cube performance, multiple wells drilled in multiple benches from a single well pad, is more important than optimizing the individual well. The oil and gas industry will meet this challenge by maximizing productivity through drainage.
