Longer laterals, higher proppant loads, tighter stage spacing and higher stage counts have contributed to increased production. There are tradeoffs, however. The same proppant that improves production can also severely erode downhole tools.
Fortunately, erosion can be largely mitigated with a few effective solutions. This white paper explores a few innovations that offer operators confidence in delivering aggressive treatments to maximize production. These include:
– Tool design
– Finding and reinforcing vulnerabilities
– Quality control for precision and reliability
