Abstract

The purpose of this presentation is to introduce the topic of hydrodynamics and discuss its role in helping to predict areas with a higher risk of water production in unconventional reservoirs. Hydrodynamics plays a key role in the formation of regional low permeability tight gas and hydrocarbon liquid systems, such as the Lower Triassic Montney Formation located in northeastern British Columbia and west-central Alberta. Variable reservoir quality, multiple source rocks, occurrences of fluid migration, and structural history have all contributed to a complex hydrodynamic system in the Montney. This presentation provides several examples of areas of higher water production across the unconventional reservoir.
