How fracture interference impacts Woodford shale gas production
Integrated digital workflows are becoming increasingly important in understanding complex, unconventional reservoirs and basins. Bringing disciplines together in a single-project environment is central to maximizing productivity through better knowledge sharing, increased collaboration, and a standardized approach. The end goal is always the same—to allow asset teams to make more informed decisions through an optimal understanding of risk. A recent example of how a multidisciplinary digital workflow shaped understanding and developmental planning can be seen in the Woodford shale of the Anadarko basin in Oklahoma. The Woodford shale was deposited during the late Devonian, along the western margin of the North American Craton. Regional studies indicate that the Cherokee Platform and Nemaha Ridge were positive features at the time, segmenting the Devonian shelf into proto-Anadarko and Arkoma basins, and disrupting deep marine upwelling conditions, resulting in regional facies changes.
