Fracture restimulation enhances well productivity and improves reserve recovery. This article discusses some of the reasons for refracturing success, including reorientation of new hydraulic fractures due to changing stress conditions after an initial treatment and a period of production. We present conclusions from a two-year restimulation study and results of subsequent field trials. Case histories from the USA and Canada demonstrate candidate selection, treatment implementation and improved well productivity.
