Mechanical stratigraphy of the Vaca Muerta Formation, Neuquén Basin, Argentina
The Vaca Muerta offers an excellent opportunity to study field development at an early stage. The particularities of how best to characterize this play are developing, and various techniques and processes must be tested. Even in parts of the basin where wells are being drilled in rapid succession, production history is relatively short, and the dynamics of how the production may change with time are still to be anticipated (Rimedio Et al., 2015). With limited core data for calibration, a comparison of several predictive methods was made to estimate rock properties for the Vaca Muerta Formation ...
