Title:
METHODS AND APPARATUS FOR WELL PRODUCTIVITY
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2015/019112
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
A system and method for drilling a formation and a method for computing expected production from a wellbore in a formation and/or hydrocarbon reserves associated with the formation, the formation having a plurality of naturally-occurring fractures, the method including computationally modelling the formation; computing one or more wellbore positions intersecting some or all of the fractures; and computing an expected production from the wellbore at least partially based on an expected wellbore damage associated with a particular type of drilling technique.
