Tank Development in the Midland Basin, Texas:  A case study of super-charging a reservoir to optimize production and increase horizontal well densities.

Presented by:
Dr. Jon McKenna, Geological Engineer, FracRx


Overview: Jon will give a presentation on frac hits/parent child covering the specifics from the QEP URTeC paper entitled “Tank Development in the Midland Basin: A case study of super-charging a reservoir to optimize production and increase horizontal well densities”.  In addition, he will show a geomechanics study detailing stress patterns from the Utica.   Download Case Study


Biography: Dr. Jon McKenna is a geological engineer at FracRx. His work relies on microseismic measurements during hydraulic stimulation to quantify dynamic stress changes in the reservoir and develops accurate fracture models to simulate proppant placement and forecast production.  He holds a B.S. and a M.S. from the University of Georgia in Geology and Geophysics and a Ph.D. from the Colorado School of Mines in Geological Engineering.  He has over 20 years of engineering geology experience, has published over 50 journal articles or abstracts and is the primary inventor of three U.S. patents.
