FracPredictor 2014 to provide the Oil and Gas industry the capabilities to do their own internal studies. Successful development of unconventional resources requires the integration of at least five key data types:
Special logs such as brittleness and fracture density available at the wells,
Rock elastic properties estimated in 3D from post and pre-stack seismic inversion,
Reservoir stress and strain models using advanced 3D geomechanical simulations,
Reservoir models of Total Organic Content (TOC), porosity and fracture density,
Production and pressure forecasts of multi-fractured wells,
FracPredictorTM brings to the E&P industry a quantum leap in technologies that achieves the true integration of these five disparate data types. Most of the current industry efforts towards this integration goal consists of trying to glue together old technologies, into a new workflow that attempts to address the unconventional challenges. GO GEO made a strategic decision to combine proven existing technologies with new ones specifically designed for bringing the power of 3G to provide intelligent engineering solutions.
FracPredictorTM includes 8 modules that achieve the synergetic integration of the five data types. The modules can be licensed separately.
LogPredictorTM: uses limited core and well data to predict along the wellbores that have minimal number of conventional logs properties such as TOC, Brittleness, and fracture density.
MapPredictorTM: uses limited 2D well data to create geologic maps of key properties such as curvature, distance to faults, average reservoir porosity and brittleness which can be correlated to EUR and other well performances
StratPredictorTM: From well and seismic data, structural maps are contoured and used to build structural frameworks that lead to 3D geocellular grids.
SeismicPredictorTM: uses imported seismic data to compute attributes derived from spectral decomposition, volumetric curvature, colored inversion and extended elastic inversion.
RockPredictorTM: uses a 3D geocellular grid, seismic attributes and well data to propagate in 3D key rock properties such as TOC, brittleness, porosity and natural fracture density
GeomechanicalPredictorTM: uses the derived elastic properties, the designed horizontal wellbore and the frac stages to model the propagation of the hydraulic fracture and its interaction with the natural fractures.
WellPredictorTM: uses the derived geologic, geophysical, and geomechanical models to design the optimal engineering solution.
ProductionPredictorTM: uses the derived well design and its surrounding geologic properties to forecast the production and estimate reserves.
