Better insight, including on calcite and ash bed layers, could lead to better frack designs, greater stimulation and ultimately, more production.
The technology uses an industry standard downhole data logger to collect data from which measurements are made and fracture locations pinpointed.
The company plans to produce a new hydraulic fracturing system and a ‘land drilling system of the future.’
At Hart Energy’s DUG Rockies conference, technology panelists said drilled but uncompleted wells are an appetizing prospect for producers in trying times.
Drilled but uncompleted wells in the U.S. provide an opportunity to examine new shale drilling and completion technology.
Researchers at Rice’s Integrated Systems and Circuits lab tap sensing and wireless communications expertise to develop a new generation of microchips for oil and gas applications downhole.
The report is the first of several analyses of the additive’s performance in three core basins, with this one focusing on the Greater Wattenberg area of Colorado’s Denver Julesburg Basin.
Technology advances have continued to lead to production and efficiency gains in recent years for Range Resources. The company is now working with a Texas university on a new logging tool to be built by Gearhart.
Refracking has been met with enthusiasm—especially when it works—and skepticism, but in order to move forward, the industry needs a large-scale refracking program and more investment IHS says.
Understanding drainage volume and improved permeability of stimulated rock is essential to forecasting production, according to MicroSeismic Inc.
This latest patented invention relates to fluid treatment and, more particularly, to an improved treatment apparatus for destroying aerobic and anaerobic bacteria in fluids used in oil and gas recovery and conditioning of said fluid for reuse, Ecosphere said in the release.
