Montney operator achieves high stage count stimulation with minimal operation time deploying StackFRAC HD-X
Across four wells in the Montney formation, the operator deployed 60-stage StackFRAC HD-X open hole systems to maximize reservoir coverage and minimize operational time, enabling the stimulation programs to achieve the highest rate of return possible on each well.
Each system was run on a 4.5 to 5.5-in. tapered L80 liner with ball seat size increments ranging from 1/16-in. to 1/40-in. This well design enabled the operator to run a 2.0-in. ball seat as the smallest size at the toe of the well and achieve optimal pump rates. Each 60-stage system was completed successfully and downhole operations were verified with the ePLUS® Retina Monitoring System. An activation ball was confirmed to land on every seat and each sleeve successfully shifted open in all four StackFRAC HD-X systems. Dissolvable activation balls were used in each well to eliminate millout, further reducing operational time and cost.
