Re-Fracturing - Candidate Selection and Design
Instructor: Michael B. Smith
If I want to re-frac a well “just because” – maybe I am disappointed in the production – that is most likely a BAD idea. This course discusses how I can go about selecting a candidate (there are no really “good” candidates since having to re-frac indicates original fracs were not adequate) that will benefit from such a workover. Then, what extra considerations are involved in a treatment design.
- What makes a good (or NOT) re-frac candidate
- How does depletion affect the re-fracture for good and bad
- What might be different about re-fracture treatment design
