Imaging Fracturing’s Unexpected Changes
Pictures shot in fractured wells show how a high-pressure slurry of water and sand carves up the perforations.
Extreme Limited-Entry Perforating Enhances Bakken Completions
This paper presents the evolution of a Bakken advanced completion design with the added enhancement of extreme limited entry (XLE) perforating. With this strategy, an operator has consistently stimulated more than 11 perforation clusters per stage.
Downhole Testing Identifies Really Costly Problems
Good reservoir detective work costs money, but two studies show how it can help identify even more expensive problems.
Getting More From Fracturing With Diversion
Significant production gains are being made with hydraulicly fractured wells using diversion to stimulate a higher percentage of the perforations.
The Wide Divide Between Fracturing Plans and Reality
What is observed when an unconventional well is fractured is often at odds with what was expected by those who planned the job.
