Operators are pushing the boundaries in shale field development and optimizing costs by using super pads to drill as many as 24 to 40 wells from the same pad location. While it helps consolidate the facilities, and to reduce rig moves and surface footprints, it also presents complex challenges in terms of slot optimization, shallow-depth anti-collision, and operational and scheduling activities. Landmark integrated field planning technology can help mitigate risks and uncertainties in super-pad developments by analyzing various pad layouts, along with well planning and design scenarios, to successfully execute the well and lower overall costs per barrel.
