FracFit Solution Increased Barrels-per-foot 44% Over Nearby Offset

Location: Eagle Ford Shale, Texas

An operator in the Eagle Ford Shale region of Texas needed to improve production from a horizontal exploratory drilling program in order to secure a substantial investment for a multi-well development program. Faced with limited in-house resources and a short time frame, the operator was under pressure to quickly and economically drill, stimulate, and produce the wells.

Based on the operator’s plan for the first well, a 7,000 ft (2133 m) lateral was drilled, and the placement of fracture stages and perforation clusters was determined geometrically. When drilling the second well, however, wellbore instability issues were encountered farther down the lateral. These issues prevented the operator from drilling the final 2,000 ft (609 m) of planned lateral.
