Significant advancements have been made in industry understanding, execution, and optimization of multifractured completions, but significantly more complexity and uncertainty results from interactions between infill wells and existing wells due to depletion and connectivity. At the 2019 SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference plenary session on Frac Hits, Well Spacing, and the Science (and Art) of Infill Drilling in Unconventionals, Schlumberger and other industry experts discussed the intricacies and challenges of working around tight well spacing and examined the task of integrating data to accelerate learning and optimize overall economics.
