After the Great Coronavirus Shut-In, Vista Oil & Gas turned back on their new Vaca Muerta pad. A pleasant surprise greeted them. Their oil and gas machine learning model showed the highest production the play had ever seen. Both the MDM-2063 and MDM-2061 wells produced over 2,000 bbl/d on average for the month, with peak […]
“Upsizing well completions increase production 37.5%*!!!” Sure, but when? Where that asterisk lands will have a huge impact on the returns of oil well design completions. If it’s Peak Rate, that might shorten payback. If it’s EUR — now you might have a real valuable well. Oil and gas machine learning models can be trained […]
Should QEP change its development strategy in this lower price environment? Using our machine learning models and Novi software we analyzed QEP’s Midland Asset development plans to determine the best plan going forward. Based on evaluation of the data, QEP should consider: Downsizing completion designs in primary zones. Discontinuing development of non-core zones. How much […]
How much of the oil & gas industry’s recent underperformance comes from misapplication of large completions designs with tight spacing configurations?
