Understanding Type Curve Complexities and Analytic Techniques

(Dec 2015, SPE – Calgary Section) This presentation is the culmination of a decade of working with industry experts. It illustrates the complexities, technical considerations and analytic techniques that should be part of type-well curve development and use. If proper techniques are not used there can be significant impacts on reserves evaluations, development planning, production performance comparisons and completion optimization insights.

Statistical Techniques For Analyzing Production Impacts of Completion Designs

(May 2015, REU Calgary) This presentation explores statistical techniques to better understand completion impacts on production and reserve evaluations. It demonstrates changes in completions over time and the associated changes in production profiles. It focuses largely on the Montney resource play, the largest completion data set integrated with production data to date. Editor’s Note: While VISAGE rebranded to VERDAZO in April 2016, we’re proud of our work as VISAGE and haven’t changed the VISAGE name in our earlier presentations.

Diagnostic Analytics: Tools to Identify Opportunities

(May 2014, PASC Education Day) This presentation illustrates diagnostic techniques to help production engineers identify and prioritize optimization opportunities. Three key performance areas are covered: 1) ensuring downtime impact reduction in daily production, 2) ensuring net operating income is maximized and operating costs are minimized, and 3) ensuring performance deviations from forecast are addressed early to minimize impacts on cash flow and overall corporate reserves value. Editor’s Note: While VISAGE rebranded to VERDAZO in April 2016, we’re proud of our work as VISAGE and haven’t changed the VISAGE name in our earlier presentations.
