GENERAL MEETING | Using Water Hammer Characteristics as a Fracture Treatment Diagnostic

When: December 13, 2017 at 11:30 AM

Where: Denver Athletic Club | 1325 Glenarm Pl, Denver, CO 80204

Who: Jessica Iriarte



Abstract: A water hammer signal is generated at the end of a hydraulic fracturing treatment from the sudden change in fluid velocity in the system. Analysis of water hammer data has been proposed to be a simple, inexpensive diagnostic technique to assess the hydraulic connection between the wellbore, fracture network, and reservoir. Previous studies have reached differing conclusions, suggesting that the water hammer signal can be dominated either by the hydraulic fracture dimensions or by wellbore effects. This study evaluates the utility of water hammer diagnostics in a large dataset to determine correlations between the observed water hammer signal characteristics and treatment size, fracture fluid type, completion type, tracer data and resulting well productivity.

Bio: Jessica is a Research Engineer at Well Data Labs, an oil & gas technology company in Denver, Colorado. She analyzes large completion data sets for original research and to drive engagement with customers. Jessica holds an MS in Petroleum Engineering from Colorado School of Mines and has field and technical experience working with well stimulation and completions.
