This paper presents a multidisciplinary approach to evaluating reservoir drainage patterns and hydraulic stimulation interactions among a development of both existing and new wells. Analysis of an extensive diagnostic package focuses on the potential to capture stranded reserves via refracs and infill drilling within the black oil window of the Lower Eagle Ford Shale, DeWitt County, Texas.  The project consists of a unique setup of primary (parent) wells, new infill wells, and a horizontal well devoted exclusively to observation. Liner refracs were performed in two of the primary wells, with the remainder receiving preloads. It also included the collection of a horizontal core, formation imaging and advanced lateral logs, sealed wellbore pressure monitoring (SWPM), downhole fiber-optics (both permanent and deployable), seven downhole pressure gauges, time-lapse geochemistry, and iterative production interference tests. This substantial dataset provides vital calibration for well spacing, completion strategy, and field development.
