We are pleased to welcome Chad Senters as our guest speaker for March. Chad will be presenting "Feature-Driven Interactions: Near-Wellbore Strategies and Basin Benchmarking Metrics"


Parent-child (primary to infill) relationships continue to be a major influence in drilling and completions decisions.  This presentation covers the intricacies of reservoir dynamics as it relates to Fracture Driven Interactions (FDI’s) and inter-well communication.  Depletion from Parent well production continues to be a driving force in predicting fracture driven interactions; however, this is not always the case.  The concept of Feature-Driven Interactions (FDIs) is introduced as a classification of geologic-driven interactions.  Insight into Feature Driven Interactions as they relate to parent-child interactions is provided by integrating geomechanical data spanning the lateral, along with diagnostic results captured post-fracturing.  Quantification and comparative analysis of inter-well communication is included in the case studies using diagnostic metrics.  Within this suite of metrics, the "communication intensity" metric compares the reservoir connectivity assessment amongst projects within the basin.  This empowers strategic field development decisions through actionable data.


Chad Senters is the US Sales Manager for the ProTechnics division of Core Laboratories specializing in completion, production, and reservoir diagnostics. Chad’s extensive experience in the oil and gas industry including stimulation, coiled tubing and downhole tools in addition to completion, production, and reservoir diagnostics.  Chad is a graduate of the Missouri University of Science and Technology (formerly the University of Missouri Rolla) with a BS in Chemical Engineering and graduate certificate in Management and Leadership.  Senters is an active member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) and has held a variety of section officer positions including Section Chair and is currently serving as SPE GCS Westside Study Group Chair.  Senters is a past recipient the SPE Outstanding Young Member Service Award and the Production and Operations Technical Award for the Mid-Continent Region.  He has published and presented numerous papers at the SPE HFTC and ATCE and is an active contributor in several SPE Applied Technology Workshops.  He is committed to passing on industry knowledge and experience to students and young professionals through local and international SPE mentorship programs in which he actively participates.
