The performance of unconventional wells depends on variables within operator control, such as stage length and fluid volume, and outside of that control, such as rock properties, geology, and market economics. The completion design must account for all of these factors. The other challenge has been the lack of availability of low-cost data that can be collected on a large scale to properly distinguish and separate the impact of these factors on completion performance. Collection and analysis are now possible with pressure data from the treatment and offset wells. The pressure data are a low-cost option to enable measurements on every well and implement established best practices for continuous improvement.
