Case studies in the Hosston formation were shown to provide benefit from fracturing with high proppant concentrations.
A unique viscous fluid has been used in fracturing deep, high-temperature reservoirs. By using large treatments and high concentrations of proppants, reservoirs with low permeability and porosity can be proppants, reservoirs with low permeability and porosity can be successfully stimulated. Data from widely varying formations are compared, with special emphasis on the Vicksburg.
