CHOA Partner Event: Mitigating Production Degradation Due to Frac Hits in Unconventional Reservoirs

Abstract: In unconventional reservoirs, a "frac hit" is the infill-to-parent well communication during hydraulic fracturing. In most shale plays, production from the parent-infill well system drops below original forecasts due to production degradation after fracture hits from offset wells.  This study reviews current methods to mitigate the production degradation and evaluates the effectiveness of these […]
