Optimized Well Placement from the Integration of Geoscientific Measurements

Gorka Garcia Leiceaga


The integration of prestack seismic, rock physics, horizontal drilling, and hydraulic fracture monitoring may be used to help evaluate hydrocarbon production capacity in unconventional plays such as tight or shale formations may. The workflow presented in this paper demonstrates how many pieces of the geoscience puzzle may fit together to potentially enhance recovery rates from optimized well placement.
