Description

 Operational Considerations in Hydraulic Fracturing
of Horizontal Open Holes
 
Much of the successful exploitation of the tight gas reservoirs in the U.S. and Canada is due to our ability to cost-effectively drill, complete and hydraulically fracture horizontal wells in these reservoirs.  A popular method of creating multiple fractures in horizontal open holes is by the use of frac ports and sliding sleeves which have made it possible to reach and drain large reservoir volumes by creating multiple fractures in a single well, through injection of several hundred thousand gallons of fluid and proppant.  Successful application of these systems requires adherence to a set of “best practices”.  This presentation will show the results of the successful application of these practices and the possible consequences of failure to meet them.
