Development and Field Testing of a Novel Technology for Evaluating Gravel Packs and Fracture Packs (SPE 187365)

Radioactive tracers introduce significant hazards relating to health, safety, and the environment, and therefore are under strict regulations. This paper presents a new alternative pack-evaluation technology which eliminates these radioactivity-related issues.

Prefabricated liner provides a more effective layer of protection

White Paper: Independent lab results prove GROUNDGUARD liner technology outperforms the leading competitor

How to get the most out of your multi‐stage unconventional fracture design

White paper: In‐depth engineering evaluation in the Utica/Point Pleasant unconventional play opens the door for alternative completion designs that deliver more uniform fracture coverage with corresponding increases in production and economic returns.

Completion Optimization Provides Step Changes in Horizontal Well Performance in the Oooguruk Field, Alaska (SPE 174743)

Documenting the completion and fracturing-design evolution for secondary recovery over several vintages of wells, as well as the use of preinstalled tracer systems to verify production uniformity and diversion success.

Hydraulic Fracture Height Estimation in an Unconventional Vertical Well in the Vaca Muerta Formation , Neuquen Basin, Argentina (SPE 179145)

​One of the major uncertainties in the analysis of unconventional well productivity is the estimation of the hydraulic fracture height generated during stimulation operations. This study was carried out in a well located in the Neuquen Basin, Argentina with main focus on the development of unconventional shale oil.

Dry Utica Proppant and Frac Fluid Design Optimization (SPE 184078)

The Dry Utica play is an exciting unconventional gas development currently unfolding in the Appalachian Basin. Published results for several wells exceed an average Initial Production (IP) rate of 60 MMcf/day.

Ceramic media improves quality, increases value in lost foam casting

For years, naturally occurring silica sand has been the most widely used molding mediain the metal casting industry, due to its low cost and abundant availability. However,there are many concerns around performance, health and environmental issues withsilica sand (as well as with zircon, olivine and chromite sands).Ceramic casting media is a manufactured product with properties that are proven ...

Effect of Incomplete Fracture Fill Up at the Wellbore on Productivity Ratio (SPE 4677)

Mobil demonstrated the use of “controlled screen out” designs in 1973. These screenouts were intentionally caused by lowering the injection rates and simultaneously increasing the proppant concentration to insure a fully packed fracture near wellbore.

The Application of Massive Hydraulic Fracturing to the Tight Muddy "J" Formation, Wattenberg Field, Colorado

In the very low perm Wattenberg Field (0.05 to 0.005 md), massive treatments exceeding 1 million pounds of sand were attempted. "Proppant pillars" were attempted, with slugs of sand laden stages followed by equal sized clean fluid stages.

Mini Massive Frac - A Stimulation Technique for Low Porosity, Low Permeability Zones (SPE 6627)

In the Ravencliff sandstone of West Virginia, a wells was frac'ed with up to 8 ppg sand, achieving three times the flowrate of typical offset wells with more modest stimulation treatments.
