One pilot involves increasing the number of stages per well, while the other focuses on higher proppant loading.

Particle analysis and real-time tracking are just two of many areas where new technologies are driving innovation in proppant efficiency and well productivity.

One company’s ‘super-lateral’ approach is paying significant dividends.

Bakken E&P companies turn their sights on reducing drilled but uncompleted wells backlog.

The next generation of pressure pumping systems delivers a cleaner, quieter solution to hydraulically fractured wells.

Located in Zelienople, Pa., and servicing Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia, Cornerstone Completion Services (CCS) will provide thru tubing and fishing services to oil and gas exploration companies and gas storage and transmission companies.

Recovery might be closer, but batch completions still not keeping up with batch drilling.

The latest data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration shows the number of drilled but uncompleted wells is falling.

When compared by vintage, both the Marcellus and the Utica have had improved overall EURs and IP rates since 2012.

An elevated amount of water used in the Eagle Ford could lead to logistical problems when oil prices increase.

Longer laterals and debundling services are among the cost-saving and value-generating moves as E&Ps aim for higher returns amid lower commodity prices.

Better insight, including on calcite and ash bed layers, could lead to better frack designs, greater stimulation and ultimately, more production.
