What is it about?

For shale reservoirs, there is a significant amount of horizontal wells. These horizontal wells bring lots of data for shale reservoir evaluation, which is quite different from data from vertical wells. A challenge is how to correctly and effectively use these data. This paper focused on how to use these data for 3-D structural modeling and property modeling of shale reservoirs.

Why is it important?

Since there are more and more horizontal wells, how to effectively use these data becomes more and more significant. This paper gives a very good example of how to use these data for structural modeling and property modeling.


This is my great pleasure to share my understanding of the application of horizontal well data in shale reservoir evaluation. I hope this will help petroleum geologists and engineers to better use their data for shale reservoir characterization.
