After treatment, the Sabriyah well was immediately flowed back and produced 100% crude within two hours. The production rate was over 10,000 BOPD, 5 times the field average and 3 times the best well in the field. This well was the first to ever be completed with a multi-stage fracturing system in Kuwait. Two years after treatment, an Electric Submersible Pump (ESP) was installed with a production rate of 3,028 BOPD due to a lack of reservoir pressure support.
The initial postfracture production of the Burgan well was 3,827 BOPD, more than twice the best producer in the same area and significantly higher than the average 1,127 BOPD for horizontals in this field.
The success of these and a third well in the Mishrif limestone formation in the Minagish field (220 BOPD to 4,788 BOPD after multi-stage fracture stimulation) has the Operator looking to apply this successful technique to many of their open hole carbonate horizontal wells that are currently shut-in due to poor performance.
