Barnett study develops decline analysis, geologic parameters for reserves, production forecast - Part 1 of 2.

A comprehensive study of the reserve and production potential of the Barnett Shale integrates engineering, geology, and economics into a numerical model that allows for scenario testing based on several technical and economic parameters.

Part 1 summarizes the geologic characterization, per-well decline analysis, and productivity tiering required to feed into the detailed modeling of future reserve and production forecasts.

Published in the Oil & Gas Journal.

The conclusion (Part 2) examines full field economics and production and reserve forecasts.
