Michael J. Fetkovich Technology Award

PS! Video can be found here: https://youtu.be/9jHoEFFWRYI This award is dedicated to the many and important technological achievements made by Mike Fetkovich in the field of petroleum engineering. Its intention is to honor new technology that would have been recognized by Mike as improving the accuracy and certainty of resource determination and production forecasting. 2022     […]

What is Fractional RTA?

An inherent assumption in most industry RTA is equally spaced fractures. However, as shown in several field studies (Raterman 2017, Gale 2018), the distance between individual fractures tends to be unevenly spaced along the wellbore (e.g., “fracture swarms”). Fractional RTA extends industry standard RTA workflows to account for uneven fracture spacing. Flow Regimes 1.01 To […]

Anadarko – Multi-Client PVT Study

Last updated: 11 August 2022 SCOOP/STACK/Merge – Multi-Client Study The SCOOP/STACK/Merge multi-client project was first initiated in February 2019. The main objective of the study was to create one, field-wide equation of state (EOS) model for the entire Anadarko Basin. Since then more data has been incorporated into the model, resulting in a more robust […]

Crossing K-values from a tuned EOS model

Author: Sissel Martinsen In our monthly article “How to Quality Check a Developed EOS” we addressed methods to check that an EOS model calculates physically consistent properties and thermodynamic valid solutions. A thermodynamic consistent EOS model is a model that gives consistent phase behavior of mixtures, and individual components. Part of our standard EOS QC […]
