This paper evaluates batch-mix-fracturing (BMF) applications in moderate-permeability reservoirs. Specialized BMF equipment provides a reliable means of creating short, highly conductive fractures. BMF efforts have been improved by effective treatment design and the use of a computer-driven fracture simulator. A case study of fracture treatments in a Wyoming oil reservoir indicates that the BMF technique can provide results superior to conventional methods with continuous-mix equipment.
