American Oil and Gas Reporter - December 2016 - 63

Introducing a new controlled optimization
process for multistage completions
A well-to-well program made possible by consistent frac placement
and measured downhole pressures and temperatures
Controlling key variables enables true optimization
Plug-and-perf completions cannot be truly optimized, because
the number of fracs, frac spacing, and propped volume are
uncontrolled variables. The same is true for openhole packer/
ball sleeve completions. Even if a completion is economically
acceptable, there is no reliable, methodical way to improve
the design, because frac placement is not repeatable from
well to well.
Predictable, verifiable, and repeatable frac spacing and propped volume
facilitate formation-specific, well-to-well optimization across entire fields

Pressure, psi

With the Multistage UnlimitedĀ® pinpoint frac system, you
know where fracs initiate and exactly how much proppant
you put in each one. No matter what else you adjust-frac
spacing, frac dimensions, proppant type and concentration,
frac fluid, or injection rates-frac placement is predictable,
verifiable, and repeatable, so you can clearly see the effects
of your changes and adjust your design accordingly.

Consistent frac placement plus downhole data is your fastest

At every stage, the Multistage Unlimited frac-isolation system
records pressures and temperatures at the frac zone and in
the wellbore below (see charts at right). The data reveals
the presence and type of any interzone communication
(e.g., natural fractures or cement failure) and identifies the
presence and source of near-wellbore restrictions. These
stage-by-stage details provide critical insights operators are
using to optimize frac design and frac spacing.

The Multistage Unlimited frac-isolation system is the world's leading coiled-tubing frac technology, with more than 137,000 stages completed.
