108712 – An Efficient Horizontal Open Hole Multi-Stage Fracturing and Completion System

Summary

Over the last two decades many developments have enabled accelerated growth in horizontal drilling. Developments in completion technology specific for horizontal wells have broadened the reservoirs where horizontal wells can be effectively stimulated. This paper will discuss a new open hole completion system run as part of the production liner, does not require cementing and provides mechanical diversion at specified intervals, thus allowing fracturing and stimulations to be effectively pumped to their targeted zone.
