Collaborative refracturing workflow aids predictable, repeatable recovery of bypassed reserves ///

Five years ago, unconventional resource exploration and development in North America were driven by high service intensity, horizontal drilling and completions, and high oil prices. However, given current low commodity prices, operators are seeking innovative, economical and profitable methods to increase incremental estimated ultimate recovery (EUR) and reduce the break-even cost per barrel of oil equivalent (BOE). Modern advancements in engineering technology—particularly, diversion technology, design methodologies, and fiber-optic diagnostics—have contributed to making refracturing a more predictable, repeatable practice.
