Pad Placement and Well Design
o Introduction to Shales (North American Success story and International Growth potential)
o Introduction to FDP; Need for & benefits of a Rapid FDP for shale plays
o Introduction to Well Engineering for shales- What is different in drilling shale wells?
o Introduction to Pad Placement in Petrel
o Practical Session: Optimum Pad Placement
? Participants to work in their assigned teams to analyse the sweet spot data & surface restrictions maps to determine pad placement cases
o Introduction to Pad Well Design in Petrel
o Practical Session: Optimum Pad Well Designs
? Participants work in their assigned teams to determine pad well designs for the pad placement cases generated in the earlier practical session
Participants will be introduced to the concept of hydrocarbon production from shale reservoirs and FDP. At the end of day1, they will gain a good understanding of the need for and the process of planning multi-well pads and horizontal well designs and its importance in finalizing an FDP for shale plays.
Rapid Field Development Plan for Shales
o Production forecasting using Type Curves
o Introduction to RapidPlan FDP application
o Practical session: Generate & optimize FDP scenarios
? Participants work in their assigned teams to generate multiple FDP scenarios based on the pad placement cases generated on day1 and determine the optimum scenario
o Practical Session: Analysis of FDP results
? Participants work in their assigned teams to generate reports, analyze results (production and economics).
? Brief presentation of the FDP results and the recommended scenario by each team
o Brief introduction to other FDP options available in RapidPlan
Participants gain a good understanding of type curves and their application in generating production profiles. They will be able to appreciate the relation between lateral length & production. Participants would be able to appreciate the FDP scenarios, ranking & optimization process, understand the basic economic terms such as NPV, ROI and gain confidence in presenting the FDP results and recommendations.
