Re-Fracturing–Candidate Selection & Design 

Instructors: Carl Montgomery/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
