Production Prediction of Hydraulically Fractured Reservoirs Based on Material Balances

submitted on 30.05.2019, 17:54 and posted on 31.05.2019, 15:17 by Raul Velasco, Palash Panja, Milind Deo
Transient flow is dominant during most of the productive life of unconventional wells in ultra-low permeabilities resources such as shales. As a result, traditional reservoir performance analysis such as the conventional material balance have been rendered inapplicable. A new novel semi-analytical production predictive tool based on application of material balance on a transient linear flow system is developed.
