Integrated Completion Sensitivities for Horizontal-Well Design in the Vaca Muerta
The boom in organic shale plays has revealed the critical need to size hydraulic-facture treatments correctly to achieve commercial success.
Optimism and Activity Rising in the Vaca Muerta
Shale explorers in Argentina are reporting that improving performance and activity is set to rise this year to boost the country’s gas production.
Argentine President Macri Visits With US Oil and Gas Industry, Asks For More Investment
Argentina President Mauricio Macri visited with oil and gas companies in Houston to emphasize that his country’s reforms are making it increasingly attractive for upstream investing.
Shell Stays Committed to Shale Opportunities
Shell has reaffirmed its commitment to the shale business and views it as a growth opportunity moving into the 2020s
Modeling of a Complex Reservoir Where the Normal Modeling Rules Do Not Apply
With the easy conventional oil in Argentina having been produced, one remaining way to find new oil in existing fields is to convert fields from primary or secondary production to secondary or tertiary production, respectively.
Colloidal-Dispersion Gel in a Heterogeneous Reservoir in Argentina
The Loma Alta Sur (LAS) field is a multilayer fluvial sandstone reservoir in the Neuquén basin of Argentina. Colloidal-dispersion-gel injection was considered a viable strategy to improve oil recovery in the field after early water breakthrough.
Conditioning Mature Vertical Wells To Stimulate and Test Shale Productivity
One of the most promising targets for resource-rock stimulation in South America is the Vaca Muerta (VM) shale in western Argentina.
Water Management: Lessons Learned and Considerations for a Shale Play in Argentina
This paper discusses aspects of water logistics necessary during the well-completion phase, fracture-treatment designs applied in Vaca Muerta, and laboratory studies performed on flowback and produced water to help evaluate the potential for water reuse.
