Paper Number: SEG-2019-3208737
... ABSTRACT Laboratory studies show ultrasonic wave stimulation is an effective method to improve permeability of reservoirs which can enhance the production of oil and gas in unconventional reservoirs. However, the basic mechanism of the effect of ultrasonic wave on micro-scale structures (e.g...

The attenuation can dramatically change waveform characters and causes velocity dispersion. Thus, sonic logs, which are acquired at frequencies much higher than seismic data...

ABSTRACT We analyze microseismic data recorded during the hydraulic stimulation of two parallel lateral wells with the goal of isolating regions in the target zone that have been effectively fractured and propped. The two wells are located in Lavaca County, Texas, below a depth of 10,000 feet...

With limited data, and wells being drilled in rapid succession (Rimidio et al., 2015) an understanding of what drives stimulation, and by extension production is critical. In recent years...
