This paper targets a comprehensive predictive model to evaluate the key success of completion strategies (treatment) for major successful shale plays and guide future selective optimum completion for each shale play. Many important parameters that control producing well behaviors such as number of horizontal wells, spacing between fractures and wells, horizontal well completion configurations, stages per well, fracture type, average water requirement, depth, proppant type, hydraulic horsepower(HHP) per stage, Lb/ft2 of proppants per stage, number of stages, and lateral length of the horizontal wells, have been analyzed.
