Title: Using Depletion-Zone Microseismicity to Understand Producing Volumes | Part 2
Description: In Part 2, the methodology for separating microseismic events into different populations is further defined. This yields insight into an observed proppant distribution associated with offset producing wells, an observed fluid and proppant-laden gel distribution on stimulated wells, and depleted zones associated with offset producing wells.
In addition, the proppant-filled discrete fracture network model is validated by demonstrating that the modeled proppant distributions are very similar to the observed proppant-distributions on both the offset producing wells and the stimulated wells.
