As gas demand rises around the world and operators turn to tight gas reservoirs for new supplies, the need to optimize the capacity and recovery potential from low-permeability reservoirs has risen. An economically efficient integrated process developed in North American projects enables the data and activities of multiple domains to be integrated for single-well completion optimization field modelling level. The approach constitutes a paradigm shift from how the industry operates and develops fields outside North America today, but as we will show, it has been equally successful in the Middle East tight gas development.
