... is completed in 2 to 3 hours at any stage along a lateral during normal fracturing operations. A typical ADFIT costs only a small fraction of that of a typical DFIT, due to its short duration and association with normal fracturing operations. To confirm if some of the characteristic flow behaviors observed...

...) and document the journey from first discovery to field trials. ADD is a process where un-cemented, open hole laterals are drilled contemporaneously between offset "standard" wells, using the ADD wells to "harvest" productivity from offset well hydraulic fractures. A "standard" well or "frac well" refers...

..., materials logistics, and drilling time savings. The SWBM formulation, optimized through digital fluid intelligence and hydraulics modeling, consistently met, or exceeded drilling curve projections even for extended laterals up to 3 miles. Compared to OBM operations, greenhouse gas emissions were 57.8...

Although the entire lateral was not logged, the interval of the heel logged provides answers on whether injected fluid treats the heel only or the entire lateral...

A well drilled in the middle of the pad was chosen to test four different completion designs along the lateral, alternating from a base design to tighter cluster spacing (high intensity), slower proppant concentration ramp (slow sand ramp) and increased completion fluid viscosity...

Additionally, a separate solution is proposed for calculating the hydraulic fracture...

... fundamental questions of the hydraulic fracturing process. Eleven horizontal wells were drilled and hydraulically fractured, with six wells in the Upper Wolfcamp and five wells in the Middle Wolfcamp. The wells were drilled from north to south with lateral lengths of ~10,000 ft. Subsequent to hydraulic...

... Abstract Bullhead refracturing and mechanical diversion via liners are two common methods of horizontal refracturing. Bullhead refracturing attempts to treat the entire lateral in a single stage, while installing a liner allows for multi-stage completions in the existing lateral. Bullhead...
