3D Play Characterisation
As drilling is proceeding its important to permanently update the model of the unconventional reservoir play. Ongoing integration and refinement will be essential, among others, for an optimised placement of laterals.
The evolution of understanding at a basin scale is best documented and iteratively enhanced using a comprehensive 3D Petroleum Systems Model of the study area. Such a model can be continuously updated with newest analytical results (geochemistry, reservoir properties, rock mechanics) in order to recognise and predict sweet spots for drilling and production.
