Video Refracturing: Parent Well Protection
Refracturing with a focus on parent well protection.
Production decline is a normal part of reservoir flow, but when the decline doesn't match realistic simulations and expectations, you can choose from technologies that help you improve or restore well productivity. A holistic approach may be required to get to the root cause of your production declines—or you may find an easy diagnosis with a simple fluid analysis.
It's possible to manage production declines—even in unconventional wells known for a steep drop in production—and revive flagging wells with new remediation technologies. The first step, however, is to understand the mechanism behind your declines. For example, if you're considering a refracturing program, you can maximize efficiency by first studying where the original completion fell short.
Similarly, transitioning your artificial lift strategy may be an option to manage lower oil rates, but if the rates are low because you're producing with slug flow, you might have better results with technology that can help you manage gas and solids production.
Restore your connection to the reservoir with production enhancement technologies that reduce skin and remove damaging solids and deposits.
Reinstate and improve flow performance and revenue.
Enhance well production from carbonate wells with efficient fracture or matrix stimulation operations that extend reservoir contact, even in deep, hot wells.
Manage or shut off water and gas production with application-specific permeability modifiers, chemical blocks, or cements.
Increase production with minimal capex by selecting systems that best suit your technical and economic constraints.
Simplify the process of selecting the optimal artificial lift strategy for your application with our configurator tool.
Condition produced fluid stream and mitigate slug flow to extend natural flow and increase productivity over the life of your well.
