To truly optimize a multistage completion design for a given field and formation, you need a systematic completion approach that allows you to make well-to-well comparisons with confidence. You need consistent, repeatable frac delivery plus measured downhole data that helps you better understand the formation, the well, and the stimulation. Read more.

The key to maximum reservoir drainage is a systematic drilling pattern and an efficient field frac network that achieves maximum connectivity to the reservoir. This requires as many wells as possible on a given acreage, and as many stages per well as possible, without communication between stages and between wells. To achieve this, frac spacing must be exact and frac dimensions must be uniform. Unfortunately, it is impossible to achieve either consistent frac spacing or uniform frac volume using plug-and-perforate or open-hole packers and ball-drop sleeves. Read more
