Mangrove Engineered Stimulation Design in the Petrel Platform

Simulate complex fractures in shale reservoirs

Mangrove engineered stimulation design in the Petrel platform is the only hydraulic fracturing simulator that seamlessly integrates petrophysical analysis, complex fracture engines, and comprehensive geomechanics in a comprehensive, end-to-end workflow. With a 3D finite-element geomechanical simulator, Mangrove design enables operators to simulate fracture initiation and diversion, as well as all geomechanical changes during fracturing and production, so they can make critical decisions to maximize production.

Integrate reservoir data in the Petrel platform

Through the industry-leading Petrel E&P software platform, Mangrove stimulation design integrates geological and geophysical (G&G), petrophysical, geomechanical, and microseismic data.

Integrated Stimulation Design and Modeling Increases Production by 40%

An operator in an oil-rich sector of the Eagleville field reduced completion costs by 11% and increased production with integrated reservoir characterization and multiwell completion workflow design.

Perform sensitivity studies within hours

The design is now available under cloud subscription, which provides customers with unprecedented flexibility, removes most barriers related to IT assets, and empowers users to carry out sensitivity studies in a single day that ordinarily require a month to complete.

Compare simulations to actual results

Mangrove stimulation design workflow provides estimates of proppant placement, fracture network dimensions, and reservoir penetration based on properties such as rheology, leakoff pressure, friction performance, permeability, and closure stress.

Real-time data, such as that acquired by StimMAP hydraulic fracture mapping service, can be compared to simulated results to optimize treatments as they are being performed. These comparisons help improve well planning and reduce operational risks.
