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 daily rates breaching 3,000 boe/d.
Why did these wells produce so much? Was it a novel completion design, a geologic hot spot, or a heavy tailwind of flush production? Lets explore this oil and gas machine learning use case. We will put these wells under the microscope with our Vaca Muerta public-data model.
