More efficient frac network improves Bone Spring production ///

The liquids-rich Bone Spring sandstone in the Permian basin of West Texas is a well-developed part of the Delaware basin. It exhibits moderate porosity and low permeability, and is not naturally fractured, so stimulation is required for economic production. The Bone Spring has been widely developed for many years by use of vertical wellbores and fracture stimulation. More recently, horizontal drilling and multi-stage completion technology have significantly improved well economics, and boosted interest in the formation.
