With efficiency being crucial when every dollar counts, operators in unconventional plays could add microseismic technology to fracture modeling methods to gain insight into permeability advances and better forecast production.

That’s according to Sudhendu Kashikar, vice president of completions evaluation for MicroSeismic Inc.

Understanding drainage volume and improved permeability of stimulated rock are essential to forecasting production, he said. Typically, several models are used to accomplish this, but the approach has its drawbacks.

A single frack model per stage ignores geological variations along the wellbore. Plus, a discrete fracture network (DFN) model is needed to determine how fracturing actually improves the permeability of stimulated rock, Kashikar said.
