Accessed drainage volume and recovery factors of fractured horizontal wells under transient flow
The objective of the research presented in this Master of Science thesis is to propose a practical approach to estimate the drainage volume and recovery factors of fractured horizontal wells in tight, unconventional reservoirs under economic constraints. For conventional wells, economic depletion of a given drainage area is mainly dictated by physical depletion. For fractured horizontal wells in unconventional reservoirs, however, economic depletion rates are usually reached during transient flow and recovery factors are insensitive to well spacing. A consequence of this phenomenon is the disparity ...
