Session 1: General Industry Trends Champion Ballroom Salon 6
Moderator(s) Leen Weijers, Liberty Oilfield Services; Tom Blasingame, Texas A&M University
Speaker(s) Mary van Domelen, Well Data Labs, Inc; Kyle Haustveit, Devon Energy; Paul Huckabee, Shell; David Craig, OXY; Buddy Woodroof, ProTechnics

This session focuses on the "big picture" of how unconventional well completions have changed the landscape of global production and reserves. The cost per sales volume (barrel or MSCF) has been squeezed to the limit, passing on trillions of dollars in savings from these innovations. However; we now face a situation where the production per lateral foot is stagnating due to well interference (i.e., "parent-child" effects) and in diminishing returns from changes to stimulation designs — in short, we may have reached the economic limit of unconventional development, at least at our present technical capabilities. The purpose of this session is to present an assessment of current industry trends, as well as emerging technical innovations that are likely to improve both the technical and economic metrics for well performance in unconventional reservoirs.

Session 6: Interference Testing and Production Degradation with Interference Champion Ballroom Salon 6
Session Chairpersons Brendan Elliott, Devon; David Craig, Oxy
Speaker(s) Mark McClure, ResFrac; Mark Murray, Sage Rider; Chris Adams, Chesapeake

Most recent industry literature and public presentations relating to fracture driven interactions relate to the active interactions during fracturing, however, there is equal, if not more value to be gained from proper interference design and testing the sustained long term communication between wells. There are various methods and procedures existing today, but what are the proper method for unconventional resource development to identify and quantify depletion, shared drainage, short and long term connectivity, and conductivity of the system? This session will review operator experiences and best practices when it comes to proper methods and ways to evaluate production interference that occurs after fracture driven interactions.
