The US shale frac industry has grown in leaps and bounds through the Shale Revolution over the last 15 years.  Frac designs, technologies deployed and pumping efficiencies have all changed significantly, resulting in liquid-rich shale operators now drilling and completing shale wells for half the original cost while these wells come in at double their first-year production as compared to shale wells 10 years ago. 

These changes have made US shale oil very competitive on the world stage while generally making us better neighbors.  What design parameters and technologies have delivered these changes? What technologies have been key for production improvements and gains in efficiencies and economies of scale? This presentation will look back at these formative industry changes and will attempt a deeper look into the technologies that will keep US frac’ing competitive through the next few years.

Dr. Leen Weijers serves as the Vice President of Engineering at Liberty Oilfield Services. He has worked at Liberty since its founding in 2011, originally serving as its Business Manager. Leen’s role at Liberty focuses on two main aspects. One, delivering improved well economics to customers through optimized frac designs, and two, on customer and internal data sharing and reporting to improve business efficiencies.


Leen worked at Pinnacle Technologies from 1995 to 2011, where he oversaw development of the industry’s most widely used fracture growth simulator, FracproPT. He was Pinnacle’s Rocky Mountain Regional Manager from 2007 - 2011, where he helped rebuild its Rocky Mountain operations.


Leen has authored dozens of industry courses and publications. He also played a key role in the calibration of fracture growth models with various fracture diagnostics such as tiltmeter and micro-seismic fracture mapping technologies.


Leen Weijers completed his doctoral research at the Faculty of Mining and Petroleum Engineering at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands by conducting fracture growth model experiments to investigate the interaction of hydraulic fracture systems with horizontal and deviated wells. Before that, Leen completed a Master’s degree in Geophysics, also from Delft University of Technology.
