Unconventional/complex reservoirs

A lot has been learned about shale, but those working to eke out oil from that ultratight rock still extract more value from data than physics.
Physics-based simulations plus machine-learning exercises are yielding a more comprehensive look at production volumes from unconventional assets.
Shale producers have learned in recent years that their fracture plugs may not be holding up as well as they thought. One of the first operators to realize the true scope of the issue is now sharing the pathway it took to solving it.
