Dec. 5 - Dec. 7, 2005


Refracturing treatments increase productivity and recoverable reserves by improving the recovery factor and/or drainage area at low cost per Mcf. Improvements in fracturing technology and engineering methodology increase the potential for a successful refracturing program. The change in reservoir properties over time, due to well production, can improve the probability of achieving treatment design objectives not possible under initial well conditions.  Despite this, the industry is not always willing to undertake the restimulation investment.

The objective of this workshop is to review current technologies and best practices for refracturing wells that have previously been fracture stimulated. The topics of discussion will range from assessing the initial completion properties of the well being considered for refracturing to economic evaluation of refracturing projects that have been completed. Within these boundaries, presentations and discussions will focus on, but not be limited to, the following:

  • Refracturing vs. infill drilling
  • Candidate recognition process and methodologies
  • Well completion considerations
  • Treatment design methodologies
  • Complex hydraulic fracture mechanics and modeling
  • Economics and risk
  • Treatment evaluation
  • Refracturing unconventional reservoirs (e.g., gas shale, coal)
  • Case studies/lessons learned from several refracturing programs

Workshop Focus

The workshop will focus on the in-depth discussion of the important factors needed to successfully execute a refracturing campaign resulting in improved economic return. The major aspects include candidate recognition, design, execution and evaluation, new and novel technology application, risk, and economics.
