Engineered Fracturing Fluids
Technology to optimize BroadBand unconventional reservoir completion services
Effectively stimulate the well regardless of water quality, proppant volume, or location constraints.
Operators restimulating or completing new hydraulically fractured wells in unconventional reservoirs seek to increase oil production and recovery through effective and efficient wellbore coverage and reservoir contact. With today’s common geometric completion approach, approximately 40% of the perforation clusters and more than 40% of the hydraulic fracture networks do not contribute to production, resulting in 40% of the unconventional wells in North America being uneconomical.
BroadBand unconventional reservoir completion services maximize wellbore coverage and reservoir contact to increase production and recovery. Every fracture is stimulated and propped open from tip to wellbore to shift that 40% of uneconomical wells toward 100% economic wells.
Operators expect infill wells to perform comparably, or better than, existing parent wells. However, in reality, infill wells often produce below parent well decline curves.
