For decades, RTA has been used by reservoir engineers to understand well performance drivers and quantify reserves. More recently, RTA has firmly established itself as a core component of an integrated reservoir study. The reason for this is simple- when coupling its results with those from other subsurface sciences, it has been repeatedly demonstrated to greatly reduce uncertainty surrounding reservoir and fracture properties; properties which must be understood to optimize a field development program. This presentation will demonstrate the latest applications of RTA, by itself and as part of an integrated workflow. Case studies featuring examples from the Bone Spring, Spraberry, Wolfcamp, Meramec, Cardium and Montney will be showcased.
