The testing of proppants in the laboratory to determine conductivity and permeability at closure stress provides critical data for evaluating proppant performance. The data obtained from these tests are important for proppant suppliers and manufacturers in evaluating their sources of supply or in adjusting or modifying manufacturing processes. For the operator it is a basis for comparing performance, quality and value. The webinar will discuss how this data is obtained and the limitations in its use and application.

This lecture seeks to explain a systematic approach to characterize, constrain and validate such models through integration of prefrac diagnostic injections, core data, independently-determined fracture dimensions, and postfrac production data. The final objective is to build predictive models that can be used to improve completion strategies in this promising play.

Fiber Optic (FO) technology is quite unique for diagnostic evaluation of wells as the fiber can be used in multiple ways. Initially, application of fiber for in-well technology concentrated on temperature profiling. This limited its application to processes with strong thermal signatures. More recently the use of fiber for acoustics and strain measurements has expanded the applicability of distributed fiber sensing to other areas of data acquisition and well management.

For successful delivery of Well Integrity, there needs to be an understanding of the risks that can cause undesirable events such as safety hazards or loss of containment. Performing a risk assessment on a well, or type of well, will help determine and rank the potential risks and provide information that allows limited resources to be applied in the most effective manner.
