This applied technology workshop will address key technologies and best practices for improving well performance and/or reducing

well costs to optimize completions across a mix of active North American shale reservoirs. Emphasis will be placed on “data-calibrated

optimization” as opposed to “opinion-based design”. Specific topics of interest will include:

• Current best practices across the different shale reservoirs

• Understanding critical characteristics and differences in shales

• Placement control for effective stimulation distribution

• Diagnostics to determine how well we control placement and characterization of stimulated reservoir volume

• Water management and regulatory issues

• Well performance analysis

PureLight is a step change in production analysis technology

from Pure Energy, utilizing Fotech Distributed Acoustic (DAS)

and industry accepted Distributed Temperature Survey (DTS)

technologies to deliver a breakthrough in down-hole distributed

sensing that gives a real-time dynamic profile of the well.

PureLight is built around Fiber Optic Distributed Sensing, using

backscatter analysis of pulsed laser light to turn a dual optical

cable into a high fidelity monitoring instrument that continuously

detects temperature, acoustic and vibration events every

1.8 feet (0.55m) along the entire length of the wellbore.
