Unconventional Resources: Validating the Smooth Success of HEAL System
PipeFractionalFlow, a spinoff startup from the University of Texas at Austin, uses new theories and equations to make modeling complex multiphase flow more affordable. A model recently developed offers operators an “independent and unbiased” way to validate the system and select candidate wells.
Natural Fractures Add Little to Shale Gas Reservoir Productivity
Senior Research Scientist and SPE Distinguished Lecturer Ian Walton uses a semianalytic shale gas production model to show that natural fractures, contrary to the intuitive beliefs of many, do not contribute significantly to production.

With Over 200 Shale Well Installs, This Slug-Smoothing Lift Technology Is Boosted By Schlumberger JV
Slug flow has made the life of an unconventional production engineer a bit complicated, but a new downhole technology may smooth things right out by solving some big artificial lift problems for the shale sector.
Technology, Efficiency, and Midstream Growth Drive Long-Term Future for Marcellus, Utica
While the collapse in oil price is reshaping opinions about the North American shale revolution and the outlook for oil producers, natural gas producers in the United States are in a somewhat different position
A Practical Simulation Method Capturing Complex Hydraulic-Fracturing Physics
To understand production from shale reservoirs, the role of hydraulically induced fractures, natural fractures, and their interaction in a formation must be captured.
Unconventional Technology Gains Exceed Expectations, but Low Prices Offer a Stern Test
Oil markets displayed their manic-depressive side in August, dropping to around USD 40/bbl early and jumping back to near USD 50/bbl at month’s end.
Do Data-Mining Methods Matter? A Wolfcamp Shale Case Study
Data mining for production optimization in unconventional reservoirs brings together data from multiple sources with varying levels of aggregation, detail, and quality.
Artificial Lift Experts Warn of Long-Term Production Issues in Horizontal Wells
A panel of experts says US shale producers need to rethink their drilling and completion designs as problems mount for horizontal wells when they go on pump. Hanging in the balance is whether long-term production from many shale wells will be achievable.
Shale Industry Needs to Look Within for Solutions That Save
At the recent 2015 Unconventional Resources Technology Conference, a major theme was how companies can improve performance without increasing the size of their budget.
