REGION - USA / CALIFORNIA

Challenge

  • An efficient method for primary stimulation needed on a large field with limited per well budget due to shallow low production wells
  • Zonal isolation challenging as a result of high perm / high porosity formation
  • A reliable method capable of delivering sustainable results needed to retain field viability

Solution

  • Halliburton CobraMax with HydraJet Anchor (HJA) system
  • Close collaboration with customer to perform detailed diagnostic on each well, customized tool for the specific completion of the field
  • Streamlined operations to optimize job time per well and crew size requirements 

Result

  • Zones completed 50% faster by isolating mechanically compared to sand plugs, and exponentially faster than plug & perf. 
  • Project cost was significantly lowered thanks to less time and equipment on location, and optimizing BHA redress process
  • Initial 10 well trial has resulted in over 100 jobs performed in 2018 and 2019 with no NPT 
  • Each job had an average of 13 frac stages, totaling over 1,300 stages completed
