114880 – Effective Open Hole Horizontal Completion System for Multistage Fracturing and Stimulation

Summary

This paper describes an efficient multistage horizontal openhole (OH) completion technique as an alternative to conventional openhole or cemented and perforated lateral completions. The application focuses on openhole completions in the Edward Lime of South Texas. Horizontal wells have been driled extensively in this deep high temperature gas field. This paper will detail the new horizontal completion system run as part of the production liner, which does not require cementing and provides mechanical diversion at specified intervals, so fracturing and stimulations can be pumped effectively to their targeted zone.
