Multivariate Analysis Using Advanced Probabilistic Techniques for Completion Optimization

(Feb 2017, SPE Canada Unconventional Resources Conference, Calgary) Efforts to identify optimal completion technology and design parameters are complicated by the compounding impacts of broad statistical variability in operations, reservoir/fluid and completion/wellbore design. There are several analysis approaches available to identify and optimize key completion design parameters. Each approach offers limited insight on its own, but combining a set of approaches into a disciplined methodology can collectively present a unique understanding of optimal completion technology and design. This is the presentation for manuscript SPE-185077-MS presented at SPE Canada Unconventional Resources Conference on Thursday, February 16, 2017.
