American Oil & Gas Report, August 2015
An evolving stimulation and completion strategy, building off an interconnected methodology that customizes individual frac stages to quantify permeabilities and reservoir quality throughout the lateral, continues to yield new insight into the economical drainage of the triple-bench Bone Spring formation in New Mexico’s Delaware Basin.
The methodical strategy has evolved to overcome a number of technical impediments, with early results showing sequential improvements in per-well recoveries. Early on, the investigation reinforced the importance of selecting a carrier fluid based on proppant transport
requirements, as well as fracture height and breaking ability to optimize conductivity
