Oil Window: As well stimulation work has progressed in accordance with this years planned program, results have provided encouraging outcomes related to ongoing efforts to optimize frac designs such that important new technical milestones have been recently achieved.
Well stimulation is generally carried out to increase the productivity of the wells by enhancing the flow of hydrocarbons over and above the projected rate of flow in both green and brown wells.
World demand for well stimulation materials is projected to increase more than 12 percent per year to over 65 million metric tons in 2017, valued at $23 billion.
Through the forecast period, shale gas producers will continue to embrace innovations such as multiple-well drilling pad systems and advanced hydraulic fracturing materials in order to improve drilling efficiencies and increase per-well output, all of which will benefit well stimulation material demand.
Canyon Technical Services provides leading edge well stimulation and cementing technology to customers in Canada.
US demand for well stimulation materials is projected to increase more than 10 percent annually to nearly $12 billion in 2016.
Centura Oil Provides Green Solution for Well Stimulation, Eliminates Near Well Bore Damage
Modern techniques of well stimulation are more effective in cased holes versus open holes.
The testing of the wells will include reperforating, well stimulation and artificial lift installation to evaluate zones that were productive prior to the Field being shut-in during 1997.
We believe these properties have significant upside potential that can be realized by well stimulation, infill drilling, water-flood enhancement and additional exploitation of the Clearfork, a deeper formation.
The program consists of evaluating the productive zones through a testing program that may include reperforating, well stimulation and mechanical lifting techniques to return the field to production.
Several additional wells will begin pumping in the next few days as downhole pumps are installed and well stimulations are completed.
