01  Panel: Fracture Driven Interactions Permian Ballroom
Moderator(s) Kyle Scott - Pioneer Natural Resources, Himanshu Kumar - BP
Speaker(s) Brendan Elliott - Devon Energy, Mike Rainbolt - Abra Controls, Yvonne Scherz - Endeavor Energy Resources, Laine Valle - MDC Texas Energy
As infill wells are developed on pads or zones adjacent to existing producers, it's clear that wells interact. These interactions can have varying severity ranging from only minor pressure or fluid connectivity during completion to significant degradation in long-term well performance of both the original primary well and the new infill well. Characterizing interaction drivers and mitigating potential degradation are critical for optimal development. This panel session will bring together several industry experts to discuss current understanding, emerging technologies for new learnings, and methods for mitigating negative frac-hit interactions.
