Modeling and Simulation Forum #3

Utah FORGE Modeling & Simulation Forum #3

"Injection Testing and Stress Measurements" presented by Pengju Xing and John McLennan (University of Utah)

June 17 at 11 am MDT

"The forum will address injection-based stress assessments were carried out in the openhole toe and in a cased/perforated section in a pilot vertical well in 2017 and in 2019. The basic measurement program is described, and the familiar complexities of interpretation discussed. Additional discussion will briefly describe flowback and temperature as diagnostics for in situ stresses.

Future modeling activities will include history matching legacy injection data using Schlumberger’s Kinetix and Itasca’s XSite. With calibration from this history match, predictive simulations will be carried out to help to comprehend fracture morphology during future injections at the toe of the first FORGE extended reach well.

This is the third forum of the series and is intended to have an open format to present modeling and simulation, both completed and planned, as well as activities being conducted by the Utah FORGE Team. This webinar will be recorded and will be available for viewing later.

Please note registration is required for the forum and seating is limited.

Modeling and Simulation Forum #1 RECORDING

The inaugural Modeling and Simulation Forum was held on April 15, 2020 and if you weren't able to participate you can check out the video recording of the webinar below.

Topics that were covered included an overview of the Utah FORGE project, a description of the numerical methods and codes that have used, a summary of modelling results dealing with discrete fracture network, the distribution of stress, and the planning of well trajectories.

This will be a recurring event to keep the EGS community updated on our activities and, most importantly, to gain the community's feedback.
