Check out the fifth webinar in our Power Up series and the first in a mini-series of three webinars exploring the factors affecting the growth of stimulated rock volume in Kaybob, Duvernay; Unlocking the Role of Geomechanics in the Duvernay: Part 1 of 3. If you missed it, we've got you covered with the replay now available on demand.
This session (originally presented September 14th, 2020), is the first of a three-part webinar series where Erfan Sarvar Amini, Ph.D., P.Eng. shares our findings from a collaborative study of Kaybob, Duvernay. Each webinar will address key unknowns pertaining to stimulation and fracturing within the area.
Part 1 primarily focuses on the construction of the 1D Mechanical Earth Model (MEM) for the target Duvernay rocks and potential overlying and underlying containment zones. Discussion includes:
- Characterizing the geomechanical properties and the state of tectonic stresses and pore pressure in targeted rocks
- Determining the geomechanical sweet spots and best landing zone for maximizing stimulated rock volume
To set the stage for the following two webinars, we use the constructed MEM to simulate the geomechanics of fracturing using a novel 3D SRV simulator and provide insight on:
- Growth of SRV and fracture height and containment in the presence of the geomechanical heterogeneities
- Determining the SRV compressibility and the potential role of unpropped stimulated volume on production based on the pressure fall-off stage of a mini-frac test
- Comparison of the single stage frac propagation vs multi-cluster simultaneous frac propagation
If you want to check out Part 2 or Part 3, they are also now available on demand. While these sessions are interconnected and built together, each also functions as a standalone. You are encouraged to attend any or all of them based on your area of interest.
The session is an hour long including Q&A. If you need to pause for a break, just close the webinar window and it will remember where you left off when you come back.
We've also created a short anonymous survey so that you can let us know what you think of our webinars, so please share your feedback!
