Hybrid Approach Proves Effective in Multiwell Forecasting in Unconventionals

The authors of this paper propose a hybrid approach that combines physics with data-driven approaches for efficient and accurate forecasting of the performance of unconventional wells under codevelopment.

Poromechanics Modeling Forecasts Production, Analyzes Productivity Decline

This paper describes a full-field and near-wellbore poromechanics coupling scheme used to model productivity-index degradation against time.

Deep-Learning Framework Forecasts Dynamics of Carbon Dioxide Mineralization

This paper develops a deep-learning work flow that can predict the changes in carbon dioxide mineralization over time and space in saline aquifers, offering a more-efficient approach compared with traditional physics-based simulations.

Model Shows Computational Gains, Preserves Accuracy in Tight Rock EOR

The authors of this paper present an advanced dual-porosity, dual-permeability (A-DPDK) work flow that leverages benefits of discrete fracture and DPDK modeling approaches.

Work Flow Screens Surfactants for EOR Through Wettability Alteration

This study presents a novel approach to screen thermally stable surfactants at high pressures and high temperatures for the explicit purpose of wettability alteration in the operator’s Eagle Ford acreage.

3D Integrated Model-Driven Work Flow Developed for Shale Hydraulic Fracturing

The authors of this paper describe a model-driven work flow developed for hydraulic fracturing design and execution that could be a resource for other shale plays with similar challenges worldwide.
