107930 – Using Open Hole Horizontal Completion Technology to More Efficiently Complete Vertical Wells

Summary

Horizontal completion technology has progressed dramatically over the last six years, with the latest technical barriers being eclipsed with open hole technology. From the enhanced production witnessed using open hole completion with mechanical isolation, to the operational benefits of multiple fracturing operations being pumped in one continuous operation equating to time savings, more efficient fracs, faster cleanup and less safety hazards. These operational considerations will be thoroughly outlined, including case histories where this technology has been successfully applied.
