Full Description
 
Optimizing Hydraulic Fracture Placement
in Eagle Ford Horizontal Completions Utilizing Limited Entry
 
 
In order to make the Eagle Ford shale an economic success, horizontal drilling and multi-stage hydraulic fracturing are essential.  Placement of perforation clusters across the laterals is driven by rock quality, gas shows and sometimes simply by mathematics, all in an effort to effectively drain the reservoir.  If the hydraulic fracturing treatments do not effectively treat all of the targeted intervals, then portions of the lateral can go unstimulated, thus stranding hydrocarbons in place.  Lewis Energy has performed quite a bit of diagnostic testing to determine the optimum perforation design to ensure that the fracturing treatments are being diverted across all of the targeted intervals.  Case histories will be presented that reflect the lessons learned.
