Traditional marine seismic data lack the very low and the very high frequencies, as well as some of the middle frequencies, due to ghosting.
The Panhandle region in the Anadarko basin has long been exploited by vertical wells. Now, a select group of operators is employing horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing in the Panhandle Liquids plays to target tight oil formations.
Horizontal drilling and multi-stage hydraulic fracturing get credit for much of the success in producing from ultra-low-permeability shales.
Coiled-tubing (CT) multi-stage fracturing technology delivered precise frac placement and predictable propped volume in a Bone Spring production operation.
In assessing the value of the Permian basin and its wells in comparison with other shales, this play may not always have the highest IPs and EURs, but it beats the competition with respect to well cost and location.
After reaching a plateau last year, worldwide E&P activity is set to resume additional growth, led by a very strong drilling market.
Cheniere Energy may well be the most prominent player in the Haynesville/Bossier shale these days, which, in itself, speaks volumes on the near-term prognosis for a once-lionized gas play that continues to be snagged in a holding pattern.
The LNG industry continues to expand and diversify amid significant market changes, short-term supply constraints, and the prospect of medium-term oversupply.
In deploying the industry’s first ultra-HPHT perforating system in the Gulf of Mexico, one operator was able to access a previously inaccessible formation.
