Full Description

Fracture flowback techniques and controls have proven to have a significant impact on post-fracture well performance in some areas. This presentation will focus on experiences from several different shales and some tight oil formations with regard to shut-in time, possible mechanisms in play, and rate, pressure drop and/or choke management techniques used to achieve acceptable results.
