With more infill drilling projects occurring, identification of depletion from existing completions will become an important part of the decision making as to whether to drill and/or complete a well.  By applying high resolution mechanical rock properties derived from drill bit vibrations, depletion can be detected from offset wells.  Using this data to normalize drainage volumes to EUR’s, a more predictive process can be implemented to optimized infill drilling and completion programs.


Eric Marshall has 15 years of oil and gas experience.  He received his B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines in December of 2002 and immediately went to work for Halliburton in the Rocky Mountain Region.  During his time with Halliburton, he became an expert in coiled tubing and hydraulic fracturing operations leading him to manage their Pinpoint Stimulation technology out of Houston, TX where he successfully expanded the technology globally.

In 2007, Eric joined Integrated Petroleum Technologies in Golden, CO as a reservoir and stimulation adviser.  During his 9 years with IPT, he practiced reservoir engineering and completions design, specializing in the economic optimization of field developments.  Eric is currently serving as Vice President of Engineering for Fracture ID where he oversee’s the management of data processing and is working with a team focused on helping operators execute look back studies using measured mechanical rock properties, completions and production data to generate a predictive model catered to helping them maximize the value of their assets.
