As a general rule, fracture-network volume correlates to production volume. However, the variables that contribute to production volume also include the number of stages, the length of isolated stages and the number of perforation clusters per stage.
Efficiency can be defined two ways in fracture-stimulated wells:
For initial completions or in re-frac situations, AccessFrac® stimulation service is Halliburton’s process for gaining both cluster completion efficiency and cluster production efficiency. It helps to optimize proppant distribution for improved long-term production performance. AccessFrac service combines diverting technology and conductivity enhancement material to maximize reservoir contact area and reduce the time cost of multi-zone fracturing.
The advantages of AccessFrac service include:
