dc.description.abstractThe early detection of "sweet spots" for oil/gas well site selection and fracturing in shale reservoirs is a challenge for many operators. Most of the time, unique parameters are utilized (i.e. brittleness) to determine the "sweet spots" for well site placement. Additionally, the fractures are generally placed equidistantly. This may create short transverse and/or axial fractures that are problematic during hydraulic fracturing and may create suboptimal production. This technology utilizes an integrated approach to site selection and fracture sequencing that allows for the optimal productivity of the well. This integrated approach utilizes both petrophysics and geomechancical data to develop a Fracturability Index to guide well site selection and fracture positioning.en_US
