Senior Product Champion for Horizontal Completions
Halliburton


 



Jody Augustine is a senior product champion for horizontal completions with Halliburton in Houston.  His current areas of research focus on the interactions between well completions and reservoirs during well stimulation and production.  He is an active member of the SPE and has authored numerous technical papers and patents.  He holds a BS degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Southwestern Louisiana and an MS degree in mechanical engineering from Oklahoma State University.   


Full Description
 
Openhole vs. Cement, Plug-and-Perf vs. Sleeves:
What Should be Considered When Evaluating Completion Options?
 
 
Horizontal wells that are to be stimulated with transverse fractures are usually completed either openhole with annular isolation packers or cemented.  Fluid communication is established by perforating or using stimulation sleeves.  The industry continues to grapple with several issues regarding these completions, such as what is the optimum number of fractured intervals, and which approach (openhole vs. cemented) provides the best hydrocarbon production.  In addition, the ever-increasing number of fractured intervals is causing an increase in operational time constraints.
 
As originally presented in SPE 142279, analysis results will be shown that highlight the production differences between openhole and cemented completions.  The differences in operational time constraints for plug-and-perf completions vs. sleeve completions will also be discussed.
