Below is an interesting introductory videos on horizontal wells (by www.unconventionaloilandgastraining.com).
Basic overview of plug-and-perf completions and operations.
At Isamgeo Italia, we believe that one of the keys to optimize stimulation and maximize recovery rates of both traditional and unconventional resources is geomechanical modelling, possibly coupled to microseismic monitoring during operations.
Microseismic monitoring allows to follow more accurately the spatial patterns of stress changes, an information that can be fed back to the calibration process of geomechanicals models. Ultimately, this would produce more accurate, reliable process understanding and forecasting.
