Abstract
Existing “evaluation indicators” are selected and combined to build a model to support the optimization of shale gas horizontal wells. Towards this end, different “weighting methods”, including AHP and the so-called entropy method, are combined in the frame of the game theory. Using a relevant test case for the implementation of the model, it is shown that the horizontal section of the considered well is in the middle sweet spot area with good physical properties and fracturing ability. In comparison with the FSI (flow scanner Image) gas production profile, the new model seems to display better abilities for the optimization of horizontal wells.
