Study Investigates Mechanisms for Damage vs. Uplift in Different Basins
The authors of this paper compare case studies from the Bakken and the STACK plays to conclude that mineralogy, petrophysics, and reservoir-condition differences between basins cause differences in the effect of fracture-driven interactions.
Parent/child interactions pose a critical challenge for oil and gas shale producers. The industry has progressed significantly in its understanding of causes and mitigation. However, important uncertainties remain. Fracture-driven interactions, or “frac hits,” exhibit varied behaviors in different basins.
