​​SPE Japan Section was pleased to invite Mr. Kyle Haustveit for the 1st distinguished lecturer program for 2020-2021 on November 16, 2020 (Zoom Meeting).

Date: 16:30-18:00 JST, November 16, 2020
Topic: Making Decisions Using Completions Diagnostic Tools in Unconventional Reservoirs 
Lecturer: Kyle Haustveit, Devon Energy

Kyle Haustveit is a professional engineer registered in the state of Oklahoma. He is a completions engineer in a centralized subsurface group at Devon Energy. He focuses on completions design, fracture modeling and diagnostic program design and interpretation.

In this lecturer program, he focused on the use of diagnostic tools to characterized fractures created in hydraulically stimulated reservoirs, focusing on fracture height. The performance of hydraulically stimulated horizontal wells in unconventional reservoirs depends largely on the quality of the completion. When developing an unconventional field with horizontal, hydraulically stimulated wells, proper characterization of fracture geometry can yield a more economic field development strategy in well spacing and completion design.

His presentation showed a case study focused on evaluating fracture height using fiber optic strain monitoring, and two forms of offset pressure monitoring to reduce the uncertainty in the well count in a stacked pay development.

SPE Japan is glad to have him as one of the distinguished lecturer this year. We appreciate his informative talks and we are looking forward to seeing the Japan Section members in the next distinguished lecture program.

Thank you.
