From Fiber Optics to Cement Isolation – Advancements in Subsurface Diagnostics

February 28 @ 11:45 AM - 1:00 PM


This presentation by Kyle Haustveit at the upcoming SPE luncheon delves into recent innovations in the realm of subsurface diagnostics, specifically tailored for unconventional resource developments. Through a detailed exploration of Devon Energy’s practical applications and research findings, the discussion will cover three pivotal areas:

1. **Measurement Techniques for Stress Shadowing and Net Pressure:** The presentation will outline the methodologies employed by Devon Energy in deploying multiple lateral pressure gauges to accurately measure stress shadowing and net pressure, showcasing a significant step forward in enhancing diagnostic precision.

2. **Reservoir Pressure Depletion Estimation:** Highlighting the Department of Energy HFTS-I Phase 3 project, this segment will introduce a novel approach utilized by Devon Energy to estimate reservoir pressure depletion through the innovative use of permanent fiber optics. This technique marks a significant advancement in understanding subsurface dynamics and optimizing resource extraction.

3. **Impact of Cement Isolation on Well Performance:** The final discussion point revolves around the latest research concerning cement isolation. It examines its influence on well integrity and performance, providing attendees with a comprehensive overview of current best practices and technological advancements in cement isolation techniques.

This presentation aims to equip industry professionals with a deeper understanding of the latest techniques and technologies in subsurface diagnostics, fostering a greater appreciation for the complexities and innovations within unconventional

In-person registration closes on February 27 at 8am MST.
