Paper Number: SPE-199700-MS
... Abstract Reduced production from child wells has been observed due to prior depletion around the parent well. In this work, a systematic simulation study is conducted to understand the effects of parent well depletion on child well fracture growth and production. A three-dimensional hydraulic...
