Unconventional

Itasca’s unconventional oil and gas services focus on hydraulic fracturing simulation, including:

  • Optimize Stimulation Design
    • height growth
    • injection rate and volume
    • fluid type, additives, and diverters
    • proppant placement
  • Validate Completion Design
    • completion types and designs
    • stage isolation
    • stage sequencing
    • refracturing
  • Refine Well Plan
    • well orientation
    • landing point
    • well integrity
  • Improve Reservoir Management
    • well spacing
    • well placement
    • induced seismicity and fault activation
    • reservoir characterization
    • production optimization
  • Induced Microseismicity
    • survey design to find the most effective array to serve the client’s microseismic monitoring needs
    • quality control of processed microseismic data to establish confidence in results
    • reprocessing for improved interpretation, including a microseismic discrete fracture network (DFN)
    • fully coupled, 3D geomechanical modeling to get an understanding of how the reservoir is responding to fluid and proppant injection
