Shale Oil & Gas
Shale reservoirs are characterized by complex geological and petrophysical heterogeneities. To economically exploit these complex low permeability reservoirs a large number of wells are required, essentially a manufacturing approach to well construction and completion. Characterization of the reservoir during appraisal, and optimization during production, are two key elements that drive development success and profitability. The WellDog suite of technical services allows operators to cost effectively describe reservoir and production heterogeneity during resource exploitation activities.
