Introduction to Re-fracturing Fundamentals


Instructor: Tim Leshchyshyn
With the drop in oil prices, a large amount of capital spent on the maintaining of production and cash flow from drilling new wells is being diverted to lower cost recompletions, particularly refracturing.  It only costs 15 to 25% of the original completions costs for refracturing but initial production can often be achieved again however with varying results in new production declines.

Although this course will focus on multistage fractured horizontal wells, there is a rich history of vertical well refracturing in the last 40 years to simplify the leap to horizontals concepts and unique multistage horizontal challenges.

Modern Production Data Analysis for Unconventional Reservoirs


Instructor: David Anderson 
This course provides attendees with a comprehensive methodology for well performance analysis with specific focus on unconventional oil and gas.

The approach combines the use of several powerful techniques and will illustrate the practical aspects of production data analysis. Participants are encouraged to bring their own data as time will be allotted to go through their examples as a class.  

Depending on interest and time available, examples from Barnett, Bakken, Montney, Horn River, Marcellus, Haynesville, and Eagle Ford plays will be presented.
