This paper relates the success of applying microcomputers to quickly and accurately analyze a large mature field. The objective of this study was to combine historical and ongoing activity with geologic information to locate restimulation, recompletion and horizontal drilling potential in the Giddings Austin Chalk field. The project was divided into four segments: system design, software development, data analysis and project implementation. The end product was a custom analysis system which allowed the operator to economically add reserves through restimulation and recompletion projects.
