Diagnostic tools such as microseismic, microdeformation, and fiber optics have been successfully used in unconventional basins for many years to identify characteristics of hydraulic fractures (Warpinski et al. 2014). More recently there has been a push for integrating multiple diagnostics for better understanding of fracture characteristics and development for overall well planning and increasing ultimate recovery. Well spacing is crucial for proper development of each asset within every resource play in North America.
The datasets used for this study will demonstrate how a more effective development of an asset based on well spacing can be created using integrated fracture diagnostic analysis to understand proppant distribution.
