Title: The Illumination of Natural Fractures and Faults of the Muskwa Shale Play in Northeastern British Columbia
Description: In this month’s webcast, we will present a case study presenting the natural fracture and faulting characteristics of the Muskwa Shale play in Northeastern British Columbia. The microseismic data for this study was recorded by a surface array during the hydraulic fracturing for 9 horizontal wells, 8 of them located within the Muskwa formation. Specific wells in this pad will be discussed illustrating different geologic characteristics, stimulated fracture geometry, and the performance of the completion including focal mechanism and b-values analysis.
