The presentation describes a well established fracture modeling workflow that uses a standard 3D seismic, conventional logs, image logs and data from one core to build predictive 3D fracture models that are validated with blind wells. The workflow uses multiple seismic attributes derived from high resolution inversion, spectral imaging and volumetric curvature along with geologic drivers to predict the fracture density with a vertical resolution of 2-3meters. The same workflow is also applied to a 2D problem where the cumulative hydrocarbon production at the existing wells is used as a proxy for the fracture intensity. The 2D and 3D mapping of the fractures is applied to a shale play to demonstrate the availability of a robust fracture mapping workflow that fully utilizes your existing data to reveal the sweet spots and optimize the development of any fractured reservoir including all the shale plays.
The live portion will be followed by a full day of independent study (not a live event). The one-hour live e-symposium can be accessed from any computer anywhere in the world using a high-speed internet connection. After the event is over, you will receive via email information about accessing the asynchronous segment (not live) which consists of your independent study materials, to be accessed and studied at any time. You will be able to email responses to the readings, along with your study question answers for CEU credit (if you sign up for the extended package).
