PARENT-CHILD WELL RELATIONSHIPS IN THE PERMIAN BASIN: MAINTAINING PERFORMANCE & ENSURING PRODUCTION LEVELS

PROTECTING THE PARENT WELL

9:40 How To Effectively Protect A Parent Well When Fracing A Child Well To Ensure Consistent Production & Maximized EUR

A main topic of concern is 'well bashing', when frac fluid of an infill child well infiltrates the wellbore of a nearby parent well. Over the past few year's parent-well production has decreased, requiring costly work-over operations to regain production targets. This session looks at how a parent well can be protected and remain productive;

  • Understand the importance of frac-protecting the legacy well when infill drilling
  • Examine cost-effective methods to ensure consistent production from parent wells through pressure build up
  • Assess how to use predictive technologies to identify key risk areas from potential negative communications
  • Analyzing the effectiveness of doing small refracs of parent wells before fracing offset wells to re-stimulate the reservoir

10:10 Question & Answer Session

CHILD WELL SUSTAINABILITY

10:20 Improving The Frac Design To Increase Child Well Economics And Facilitate Strong Productivity And Reliability

One of the most significant challenges facing the oil and gas industry in regard to production is the relationship between producing "parent" and "child" wells. Well bashing is a result of drilling infill, or child, wells that interfere with existing parent wells as fractures from the new wells connect with the old ones, which can lead to a loss of fracturing fluids and under performance in both wells

  • Adaptions in completion designs to increase production and EUR
  • Assess the best method to complete neighboring child wells to maximize recovery and optimize flow rates, looking at positive communications
  • Examine when and in what order to drill the child wells to minimize negative effects

PARENT-CHILD WELL SPACING - WOLFCAMP SHALE PLAY CASE STUDY
 

11:30 Optimize Well Spacing When Infill Drilling To Mitigate Negative Communication Between Parent-Child Wells To Maintain Production Levels And Parent Well Recovery Rates
 

Well-spacing decisions are increasingly tricky because of the potential downsides, from damaging hits to older parent wells to production from new child wells falling short of the old wells. This session discusses optimal well spacing to maintain production levels in both the child and parent wells;

  • Determining how many wells an area can handle to minimize depletion effects between well bores
  • Analyze levels of interference experienced when completed in different horizons, looking at treatment size
  • Mitigating the risks of damaging hits to the parent well to maintain production rates
