An Overview of Multistage Completion Systems for Hydraulic Fracturing
6 November 2017
Instructor: Aaron Burton
Shales and other low-permeability formations require multi-stage completions, hydraulic fracturing, and horizontal wells to produce at economic rates. This course focuses on the multistage completion systems that are used in these applications, including plug-and-perf, ball-activated systems (frac sleeves), and coiled tubing-activated systems (annular fracturing). Participants will learn the different types of wellbore completion options and how they compare in different applications. Also, the challenges and options of refracturing existing wells will be discussed.
