Re-fracturing Fundamentals: Level 2 (An Advanced Version)

Instructor: Tim Leshchyshyn

Refrac Level 2: Case Studies and Application Advancement

  • Review of field case studies and their production/economic success
    • Incremental produced total volume versus accelerated production
  • Advancements in applying refrac design and their execution
    • New technology
    • Results

Learnings from the industry will include:

  • Re-pressurizing for a refrac
  • Treating the whole well versus treating the well in segments
  • Diagnostic results from refrac
  • Choices and experiences with different diverters

Unconventional Reservoir Production (Rate-Transient) Analysis

Instructor: Christopher R. Clarkson

This course provides an overview of the state-of-the-art in unconventional gas (shale gas, tight gas, and coalbed methane) and light oil (shale oil, tight oil, and “halo” oil) well production analysis. Unconventional reservoir properties are first reviewed, followed by a discussion of production analysis in the context of a field development optimisation workflow.

Multistage Completions, Fracturing, and Refracturing in Shales

Instructors: W, Aaron Burton and Sergey Kotov

This course gives an overview for completing, fracturing, and refracturing shales and other low-permeability formations that require multistage hydraulic fracturing. Participants will learn the primary types of wellbore completion options, plug-and-perf, ball-activated systems, and coiled tubing-activated systems, and how they compare in different applications. Participants will also learn hydraulic fracturing and refracturing theory and design, including slick-water fracturing, cross-linked gels, fluids, proppants, additives, refracturing options, and identifying refracturing candidates.
