30-day production rates surge by 78%
Schlumberger has reported that its technologies helped dramatically increase production and operational efficiencies of Eagle Ford and Permian Basins, which are geologic sequences with extensive shale rock reservoirs in North America.
“In US Land, Well Services BroadBand* unconventional reservoir completion services have been deployed in 14% more wells and in 52% more stages as compared to 2014”, the company declares in a company report.
“BroadBand technology maximizes wellbore coverage and reservoir contact to increase production and recovery by stimulating and propping open every fracture from tip to wellbore. The Eagle Ford and Permian Basins reflected the highest activity in 2015 while total activity covered six basins and 32 operators”, the company disclosed.
“In South Texas, a combination of Schlumberger technologies enabled Lonestar Resources Ltd. to optimize production on a group of horizontal wells in the Eagle Ford shale play. Well Services Mangrove* reservoir-centric stimulation design software helped improve the hydraulic fracturing design by using geological property measurements acquired by Wireline ThruBit* logging services. As a result, 30-day production rates on the wells completed with the optimized fracturing design increased 78% compared to offset wells in the same field.
