Paper Number: SPE-202870-MS
... multiple reservoir zones with confidence. This multilateral well has proven the concept of implementing shorter lateral sections to target multiple zones of interest, aiming for enhanced production when compared to projects with single longer laterals. The novelty of this work is the optimized methodology...
