Title: Productive-SRV: Proppant Placement and Production Estimation from Microseismic Data
Description: This month’s webcast focuses on how using microseismic data allows users to build an event magnitude calibrated DFN, taking into account the seismic energy of the events, rock properties, and the pumped treatment. Evaluating proppant placement in the calibrated DFN allows you to discern between the part of the SRV that contributes to production in the long term, and the part of the reservoir that was affected by the treatment but may not be hydraulically connected over a longer period of time. Then obtaining reservoir characteristics from microseismic data gives you an idea of permeability that was created with the stimulation in order to evaluate drainage volume from where you are producing. From here you are able to estimate production, as well as refine field development in terms of wellbore spacing. Considering other treatment data, such as pressure and rate, we show how you can make additional recommendations on stage spacing and how to optimize your fluid system based on the signature of a proprietary treatment analysis plot.
