the hole truth

Quote Open I resigned my membership from the API RP-19 committee in the mid-1990's because I, as well as most of the other committee members at the time, knew that API Section 1 testing was completely misleading to operators trying to select the perforating system that would maximize their well's production. Now in 2017, it's time to stop wasting billions on developing perforating systems that shoot deep in concrete, API Section 1, and simply create plugged tunnels with heavy metals. Furthermore, it's time to stop misleading well owners into using inferior systems that reduce the NPV of their assets. Quote Close

Improved Hydraulic Fracturing Perforation Efficiency Observed with Constant Entry Hole and Constant Penetration Perforation

D. Cuthill, W. Yang, and J. Hardesty, GEODynamics, Inc.

ABSTRACT

Conventional perforating systems exhibit a distribution of perforation entry hole diameters around the circumference of the casing, when the system is decentralized within the wellbore. In the case of horizontal, limited entry, cluster style perforating operations the perforating system normally lies along the bottom of the casing. When hydraulically fracturing these intervals, perforation efficiency is difficult to predict since the entry hole diameters and perforation penetrations are not definitive.

A perforating system has been developed which provides a consistent entrance hole diameter and formation penetration independent of the clearance between the perforating carrier and casing...

Mining the Bakken: Driving Cluster Efficiency Higher Using Particulate Diverters

Paul Weddle, Larry Griffin, and C. Mark Pearson
(Liberty Resources)

ABSTRACT

This paper focuses on the evolution of an advanced completion design utilizing solid particulate diverters resulting in a dramatic increase in the number of fracture initiation points as validated with radioactive (RA) tracers. The ultimate goal of this strategy is to increase capital efficiency by placing a dense fracture network more contained within the producing formation. The information contained in the paper should be of great benefit to completion engineers working across a variety of unconventional oil and gas basins.

It is generally proven that larger proppant volumes and more frac stages result in higher oil and gas recoveries, i.e., bigger is better. Practically...
