to Improve Hydraulic Fracturing Treatments
This presentation will review the proven applications of hydrajet perforating during the past 6+ years, specifically as they apply to the fracturing of horizontal and highly deviated wellbores in both oil and gas reservoirs. One tubing-deployed method that will be discussed involves hydrajet perforating followed immediately by pumping a frac slurry down the tubing and out the jets with no mechanical isolation. The energy concentrated at the mouth of the fracture intersecting the wellbore creates a dynamic isolation effect thus controlling the fluid entry into the holes being jetted. As the hydrajetting tool is moved uphole to a new location, the operation is repeated with the fluid dynamics again eliminating the need for mechanical isolation. Another effective application technique employs a CT string employing CT-hydrajet perforating with the frac slurry pumped down the casing/CT annulus. In this application, a sand plug is set across each fraced interval and the CT is moved uphole to hydrajet perf the next interval and again frac down the annulus.
