Background

YPF sought to optimize future well performance and achieve improved ROI in the Vaca Muerta Shale formation by modeling the interaction between the shale and the hydraulic fracture network. Mangrove engineered stimulation design in the Petrel E&P software platform created a fieldwide 3D static geologic model to determine reservoir and completion characteristics, allowing for improved ROI and a complete understanding of the hydraulic fracture network.
