Session 1: Downhole Innovation - DOE Field Test Sites (HFTS I, HFTS II, MSEEL, ACEFFL)
Session Chairpersons Kourtney Brinkley, Devon; Dante Guerra, NSI Technologies

This session will present a summary of learnings from recent DOE Funded Field Test Sites. The presentations will focus on 1) What questions they set out to answer, 2) Test Site Design and Monitoring Technologies Deployed, 3) Results to date and key takeaways, 4) Future work.

10:00 - 10:30
10:30 - 12:00
Session 2: Perforation Design & Execution
Session Chairpersons Josh Jackson, Chesapeake Energy; Ohm Lorwongngam, Hess Corporation

This session will cover current perforation design strategies and how to optimize the process to maximize uniform proppant placement and near-wellbore conducitvity. Topics such as extreme limited-entry (ELE) and other innovative designs will be addressed with a focus on improved stimulation performance.

12:00 - 13:30
13:30 - 15:00
Session 3: NWB Geomechanics
Session Chairpersons Eric Marshall, GEODynamics; Joel Mazza, Fracture ID

The amount of information and effort we gather and employ to design a completion can be completely uprooted by what is going on behind the pipe. This session will focus on the near well stresses (naturally or induced) and rock properties that exist and discuss ways to better understand them as factors in our designs.

15:00 - 15:30
15:30 - 17:00
Session 4: Parent/Child Interactions
Session Chairpersons Dick Leonard, ProTechnics; Mojtaba Shahri, Apache

Inter-well fracture communication continues to be a signifcant challenge in optimizing well placement and stimulation size. This session will focus on what can be done in the near-wellbore environment to mitiigate fracture-driven interactions and maximize overall reservoir recoveries.

17:00 - 18:30

Session 5: Diagnostics - Sub Surface Integration
Session Chairpersons Craig Cipolla, Hess Corporation; Dick Leonard, ProTechnics; Karen Olson, Well Data Labs

The key to optimization is integrating multiple measurements and multiple scales, connecting the near-wellbore and the far-field fracture performance. This session will focus on integrating subsurface fracture diagnostics, including near-wellbore measurements such a proppant tracers, perforation imaging, stepdown testing, and "frac well" fiber optics, and far-field measurments such as microseismic, SWPM, and observation well fiber optics.

09:30 - 10:00
10:00 - 11:30
Session 6: Refrac
Session Chairpersons Josh Jackson, Chesapeake Energy; Dick Leonard, ProTechnics; Mary Van Domelen, Well Data Labs

Restimualtion of existing wells is often times a cost-effective approach to optimize well performance. One of the biggest challenges in refracturing is isolation from the original perforations. This session will cover methods and techniques currently being utilizied to ensure the restimulation initiates at different locations within the wellbore; thus avoiding potentially depleted intervals and allowing the refracs to contact new rock.

11:30 - 13:00
13:00 - 14:30
Session 7: Case Studies
Session Chairpersons Craig Cipolla, Hess Corporation; Joel Mazza, Fracture ID

This session will highlight case studies that focus on near-wellbore issues such as fracture-to-wellbore connection, cluster level fluid and proppant distribution, and the relationship between near-wellbore fracture behavior and far-field fracture geometry.

14:30 - 15:00
15:00 - 16:30
Session 8: Podcast
Session Chairpersons Eric Marshall, GEODynamics

This session will be host to a live recorded podcast discussing the issue we currently face as an industry. The discussion will involve key take aways from the workshop, interactions with the audience and a general discussion about the state our industry.

16:30 - 17:00
