What is in here?

This lesson describes the influence of permeability and surface area in a fractured reservoir. Included are the concepts of compartmentalization, SRV and production-measured (effective) permeability. Also included are the impact of surface area and SRV on well performance and EUR.

Why should you care?

Permeability, surface area and SRV are key drivers of well performance. Understanding how each of these contributes to the production equation is critical to making good decisions around completion and field development optimization.

In order to assess your understanding of the lesson materials, please select the most appropriate answer for each of the multiple choice questions below.
  • Question 1/5

    Suppose a new completion is designed to increase the SRV over that of an existing design, but without impacting the total connected fracture surface area. Which of the following best describes the expected production profile of the new well?

    • Same initial rate, same decline rate
    • Higher initial rate, same decline rate
    • Higher initial rate, higher decline rate
    • Same initial rate, lower decline rate
