Predicting Trouble Stages Using Rock and Frac Data - How to build a scalable process for applicable analytics

Presented by Jessica Iriarte, Research Manager at Well Data Labs

Abstract

When analyzing treatment responses that occur in a frac job, a stage with lower injectivity tends to display a higher than expected pressure, lower than expected rate, and higher occurrence of screen outs. Injectivity is driven by a complex interplay of geologic and mechanical factors, thus each stage must be individually evaluated to identify patterns in the dominant controlling variables and come up with suitable mitigation measures.

The challenge is to identify these patterns, or events, with a systematic process and to compare them on a stage-by-stage basis. Manual selection of events in time-series frac data is often very time consuming and prone to inaccuracies due to the lack of uniform selection and variable interpretation methods across the industry.

This talk demonstrates the value of information available in existing high-frequency datasets and a process to automate the recognition of events in the data. This process facilitates the identification of outlier stages and it enhances critical decision making.
