Session 1: Panel - Importance and Challenges of Collecting NWB Data for Optimization New Mexico Room
Session Chairpersons Dante Guerra, NSI; Eric Marshall, GEODynamics

This panel will engage industry experts to discuss the need for collecting near wellbore data, current advancements in data acquisition technology, as well as the challenges and long-term impacts of data acquisition and evaluation. 

10:00 - 10:30
10:30 - 12:00
Session 2: Cementing - Best Practices for an Optimal Stimulation New Mexico Room
Session Chairpersons Josh Jackson, Chesapeake Energy; Mary Van Domelen, Well Data Labs

The importance of the NWB area is the focus of this workshop because it is such an important part of successful stimulation and production from unconventional reservoirs. It is known that good zonal isolation is essential for effective multi-stage stimulation. This session will examine recent advances in cement design, placement and evaluation techniques specifically for horizontal wellbores. 

12:00 - 13:30
13:30 - 15:00
Session 3: Completion Hardware - New Technologies New Mexico Room
Session Chairpersons Kourtney Brinkley, Devon; Craig Cipolla, Hess

Completion optimization is an ever changing landscape within our industry. With completions commonly consisting of more than 50% of a new well's total cost even the smallest improvement can yield large impacts. The content of this section will focus on new completion hardware, tools, and other diagnostic strategies that can provide insight into fracture geometry, growth and effectiveness. 

15:00 - 15:30
15:30 - 17:00
Session 4: Perforating Design & Execution New Mexico Room
Session Chairpersons Dave Cramer, ConocoPhillips; Dante Guerra, NSI; Amit Singh, Chevron

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

17:00 - 18:30

Session 5: Parent Child Interactions - Depletion Focused New Mexico Room
Session Chairpersons Dick Leonard, ProTechnics; Joel Mazza, Fracture ID

Infill development is becoming more prevalent across North America's unconventional plays. This session will cover current technologies being utilized for depletion mapping/modeling and resulting production optimization strategies employed during the drilling and completion phases of child well development. 

09:30 - 10:00
10:00 - 11:30
Session 6: Diagnostics - Pressure Transient New Mexico Room
Session Chairpersons Karen Olson, Well Data Labs; Mojtaba Shahri, Apache

This session focuses on the application of pressure-based measurement technologies to characterize near-wellbore completion behavior and fracture performance. Traditional measurements such as step-down tests, ISIP & post-treatment pressure decline, and treating pressure behavior will be complemented with innovative accoutic technologies. 

11:30 - 13:00
13:00 - 14:30
Session 7: Refrac - Economics and Results New Mexico Room
Session Chairpersons Dick Leonard, ProTechnics; Karen Olson, Well Data Labs

Restimualtion of existing wells continues to be a cost-effective approach to maximize production. Effective isolation from the original perforations is both a mechanical and economic challenge . This session will cover the results, challenges, and economics behind various methods and techniques currently being utilized in several basins. The primary goal of these restimulations are to contact new rock which requires overcoming NWB depletion effects. 

14:30 - 15:00
15:00 - 16:30
Session 8: Case Studies New Mexico Room
Session Chairpersons Craig Cipolla, Hess; Dave Cramer, ConocoPhillips

This session highlights the value of integrating multiple measurements to charcterize near wellbore completion effectiveness, fracture-to-wellbore connectivity, and the relationship between near wellbore and far-field fracture growth. Case studies will illustrate the application of learnings from these integrated measurments to improve completion strategies and fracture treatment designs. 

17:00 - 22:00

Session 9: Data Analytics - Past, Present and Future New Mexico Room
Session Chairpersons Eric Marshall, GEODynamics; Joel Mazza, Fracture ID

The amount of data being collected, stored, and analyzed in the industry has never been greater. Today's data-rich environment is providing an opportunity for engineers and geoscientists to include analytics in their workflows. This session will address how the industry is approaching and solving real-world completion challenges and creating value using data analytics. 

09:30 - 10:00
10:00 - 11:30
Session 10: Group Discussion - Live Polling New Mexico Room
Moderator(s) Dante Guerra, NSI; Eric Marshall, GEODynamics

This session will utilize interactive polling to allow for real time attendee feedback and interactive discussion pertaining to presentations throughout the workshop. The format will provide attendees an opportunity to interact with the colleagues, content presenters and committee members regarding topics of interest presented or requiring additional discussion throughout the workshop.
