Challenge How do you keep production increasing over long time periods?
Solution Hydraulic fracturing is the mainstay for stimulation in mature fields. It yields quick production increases by creating new fractures or extending existing and natural ones. Refracturing a zone is commonly done once zones have declined to unacceptable production levels. Halliburton's SilverStim®, SilverStim LT, HMP®, SeaQuest® and Sirocco™ fluids are low-polymer-loading fluids that can be used with Halliburton's conductivity enhancers–SandWedge® and Expedite® services–to achieve highly conductive fractures that help provide more production for a longer time period.
