EAGLE FORD SHALE
Halliburton Reveals Refracturing Strategy
Although refracturing is a topic that has gained a lot of interest, many shale producers have been sitting on the sidelines because early results did not justify the spending
Automated Drilling Technologies Showing Promise
For the past several years, automated drilling has promised to deliver major improvements in drilling performance. But the technology is facing new obstacles that might affect its progress and commercialization.
Going Underbalanced in Unconventional Reservoirs
For the past quarter of a century, underbalanced drilling (UBD) has been a niche technology known to many and practiced by few. It has seen acceptance in the North Sea, where UBD is used to drill through depleted reservoirs.
Changing the Equation: Refracturing Shale Oil Wells
As shale operators look for ways to survive amid the current downturn in oil prices, accelerating the refracturing of older horizontal wells is turning into one of the most attractive options.
The Shale Evolution: Zipper Fracture Takes Hold
Hydraulically fracturing and stimulating multiple horizontal wells in sequence has been rapidly adopted by operators because of the potential for production without introducing unwanted risks.
