The Permian Basin is widely known for its stacked play geology – formations which make it a desirable basin to own acreage in, but also a challenging area in which to optimize completions. This case study highlights an independent oil and gas operator in the Permian that is focused on maximizing recovery in order to provide growth and return opportunities for its shareholders.
MicroSeismic worked closely with the operator to define clear project objectives and the scope of work to achieve these objectives. MicroSeismic employed both a downhole microseismic array and a mega FracStar® array during the hydraulic fracturing of 3 wells targeting the Middle Spraberry, Lower Spraberry and Wolfcamp A. This report focuses on the results of the downhole acquisition and processing.
