A recent 52-stage well with a measured depth of 3,550m, including 1,450m of lateral length, was stimulated in a continuous operation that averaged 1.5 hours/stage of pumping time. The well’s IP30 was over 130% above the operator’s average 2016 IP30 type curve.
This well and others have surpassed the operator’s production expectations. With high returns relative to the industry average, the operator reported that their revenue had more than doubled since the previous year. A comparison of their wells over the last few years shows a trend of improvements in production at the
The operator continues to optimize completions by implementing pad drilling, longer laterals, and with plans to further increase frac intensity. StackFRAC HD-X has been run by dozens of operators in a variety of formations in Canada, and has often been shown to provide significantly better production and cost-effective completions.
