Evaluating diversion techniques to increase stimulation effectiveness in the Eagle Ford ///

A number of studies and publications have investigated cluster efficiency in multi-cluster stimulation treatments in unconventional reservoirs, using both production logs and fiber optics. The results of these publications reveal that a major challenge, with simultaneously stimulating multiple perforation clusters in a single treatment, is ensuring that the fluid and proppant are equally distributed between all clusters. One technique used to confront this challenge has been to deploy a biodegradable particulate diverting agent into the stimulation treatment, to redistribute fluid and improve cluster efficiency.
