Unconventional resource plays are different. Determining the best drilling locations, completion methods and production plan must be different too. Heavy oil, tight gas and shale plays all require better subsurface information and a deeper understanding. Rely on experts to ensure the best results.
Where is the economic acreage in vast shale plays? What makes the difference between great wells and not so great? Sweet spots. Resource mix. Relative brittleness. Fracture orientation. Find the core acreage with better subsurface knowledge. Prioritize drilling locations.
Recovery effectiveness in heavy oil is key to favorable economics. Reducing the steam/oil ratio and increasing production are essential to better return on investment. How do you move from inefficient resource mining to effective and controlled oil recovery?
Do you know where to frac? Success in shales depends on optimizing completions. Placement of the wellbore is the first step. Accurate placement of fracture stimulation stages is the next. Too many stages fail to produce results. Too many wells perform below their potential.
