The Kinetix Shale reservoir-centric stimulation-to-production software is a plug-in for the Petrel E&P software platform. It is designed for multistage completion and stimulation design and production evaluation for conventional and unconventional reservoirs.
The Kinetix Shale plug-in consists of two tabs on the Petrel ribbon that are enabled when the Stimulation perspective is selected on the Home tab: Hydraulic fracture design and Hydraulic fracture production.
The Hydraulic fracture design tab contains all the processes related to hydraulic fracture design, including setting up a well, making zones, making completions, creating pump schedules, creating stimulation cases, and others.
The Hydraulic fracture production tab contains all the processes related to hydraulic fracture production, including creating production grids, defining cases, managing scenarios, calibrating history matches, analyzing net present value (NPV), and more.
Unconventional fracture model (UFM) improvements
Two new options have been added for the unstructured grid case in the Define production grid process
In the Workflow editor, a new set of commands for manipulating Kinetix objects has been added. Using these commands, you can modify existing Kinetix objects or create new ones. Manipulations you can perform with these workflows include:
