Achieving Consistent Stimulation in Every Stage
Every horizontal well completion seeks to distribute proppant evenly throughout the length of each completion stage. Studies have shown that this result is often not achieved and significant portions of the horizontal lateral are under-stimulated and perhaps remain un-stimulated. There are several possible techniques available to improve completion efficiency, that is, the total percentage of perforations that contribute to production. One of these is to perforate rock with similar mechanical properties within each completion stage. OmniLog® and PerfAct® provide the means to accomplish this using cost-effective techniques whose results have been validated in well performance studies and carry little to no additional operational risk.
