Optimizing a FDP in unconventionals requires different scales of understanding: a)how to optimize the reservoir contact that a well has with the target, b) how to optimize the hydraulic fracture model. c) the subsurface understanding has to translate to the surface.

The only way to approach a truly optimal FDP is through a reservoir-driven approach that forces cross-disciplinary understanding and optimization.
