A study in the Eagle Ford shale assessed the challenges associated with cluster efficiency in horizontal plug-and-perf treatments, as well as the application and methodology of using a diverter. Production was analyzed to validate the diverter’s performance, and fiber-optic data provided subsurface insight to validate diversion effectiveness.
As the industry targets deeper formations in developing unconventional plays, completion system capabilities continue to reach new heights. The goal is to design HPHT technologies optimized for horizontal wells that increase initial production rates and cumulative production to maximize return on investment.
