Shale Gas development demands for reservoir study to horizontal casing completion wells. Stages production are crucial to understand reservoir characteristics related with stimulation design and production.

The objective of the research is to propose a new method to understand the reservoir characteristic relationship with stages production after multi-stage plug-n-perf and stage stimulation.

Chemical gas tracers were added to each stage during stimulation[1]. Tracers are unique, independent, non-reaction with each other. Samples of the produced gas are collected from the wellhead and analyzed for the presence and concentration of each tracer. A comparative analysis of the amount of tracer from each stage in the samples can then be related to the amount of gas produced from that stage. The more gas produced from that stage results in more tracer produced from the stage.

A new methodology is used in this paper to describe relationship between reservoir characteristics and production and stimulation. Analyzed data will be input into a CTTRIP interpretation system for in-depth interpretation. An IRA interrelation analysis based on CTTRIP data will reveal how reservoir characteristics corresponds to the production under in-situ stimulation.

Further analysis under big data will precisely evaluate the relationship between formation petro data and stages production under in-situ stimulation for certain tectonic structure and reservoir feature, which also helps to determine compartmentalization in a specific reservoir.
