Westside: Bakken Fracturing: Objectives, Options, and Outcomes

Bakken Fracturing: Objectives, Options, and Outcomes
The technical literature have described important Bakken reservoir features including light crude, over-pressured reservoir, and the presence of vertical to sub-vertical as well as horizontal natural fractures.  Offsetting these positive features are the Bakken’s very low matrix permeability and porosity, water-sensitive clays, acid-sensitive pyrite, and salt-filled horizontal fractures.  Successful fracturing of the Bakken should address all of these features.  This presentation will include a discussion of available completion systems for both open and cased holes, frac designs and computations, on-site “read-and-react” guidelines, and post-treatment analyses of the frac data.
