Modelling Hydraulically Fractured Wells: A Multi-Fidelity Approach to Modelling Unconventional Reservoirs

Unconventional assets have quickly become one of the most prominent sources of hydrocarbon production in North America. The industry has learned that an optimized hydraulic fracture design is vital to the successful development of unconventional reservoirs.

To help you create a comprehensive and accurate development plan, CMG offers a variety of efficient and easy-to-use geomechanics and non-geomechanics-based workflows for modelling the complete lifecycle of unconventional wells. CMG’s workflows provide options for production-only modelling for fast and accurate results, as well as more in-depth geomechanical simulations for fracture initiation and propagation. The inclusion of geomechanics calculations with unconventional reservoir simulation enhances the accuracy of the hydraulic fractures, leading to better description of the interactions that may happen between the wells.
