Project Description

Horizontal wells completed 2–5 years ago have hopefully paid for themselves from high, early transient production performance. Refracturing these wells can potentially lead to production on par with initial production, or better, using recent advances in proppants and fracturing technology, at far lower costs than drilling new wells.

Pipe-It Shale Refracturing Evaluation provides an objective assessment of a single well, section or field that is considered for refracturing, enabling operators to invest in wells with highest likelihood of return on investment.
