Optimizing Matrix Stimulation Treatments for Carbonate CompletionsIncludes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 03/03/2020 at 9:30 AM (EST)
Matrix stimulation treatments in carbonates are generally considered to be low risk. Production increases from these treatments are routine and the "success" of these treatments are perceived to be high. However, many treatments realize only a small fraction of the true well potential. If a more rigorous evaluation criterion is used, many treatments would not be considered successful.
Formation Stabilization for Unconventional Shales – It’s More Than Conventional Clay ControlIncludes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 03/04/2020 at 9:30 AM (EST)
The emphasis in this webinar is to highlight the pronounced differences in formation damage mechanisms between unconventional versus conventional reservoirs and their implications to the immediate, intermediate and long term production. Addressing specific identified damage mechanisms can be achieved with fluids and chemical additive selection based on the specific reservoir mineralogy and the fracture surface. Discussions will be made on various region-specific damage mechanism and treatments for understanding the fluid-induced sensitivities in specific formations within North America and warning signs that damage is occurring in your fracture.

Fracpack Anomalies and Its Impact on Productivity in Deepwater WellsContains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits
Fracpacking and fracturing are well established techniques carried out for sand control and production enhancement respectively. This talk will focus on typical anomalies that may be encountered during pre-fracture diagnostics and discuss tactical strategies to either delay the pumping treatment to establish a better connectivity or set expectations on treatment and productivity outcomes when these anomalies are noticed via case histories.
Causes for Cement Plug Failures and Proactive Measures to Maximize SuccessContains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits
It is quite well known within the Industry that cement plug placement and its success in the first attempt is challenging. There are multitude of reasons for failures, such as improper hole cleaning, lack of adequate support for the cement plug, placement techniques, inadequate volume etc. T
The Dream Well – Closing the Gap in CompletionsContains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits
Horizontals, Multi-zone, Openhole Packers, Barefoot, ICDs, ICVs, Frac Valves, Plug and Perf, Unconventional – Why are there so many lower completion types? There is a better way – all lower completions could be redesigned as a two-trip and intervention capable system.
Using Well Heterogeneity as an Advantage to Designing Stage Specific Diverter StrategiesContains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits
This talk will discuss a methodology that examines well heterogeneity, and designs the diversion strategy based on the rock properties within each fracturing stage. In addition to rock properties, the method proposed utilizes stress shadows, perforation design, and modified pump schedules to ensure equal cluster stimulation in diverter applications.
Completion Solutions for Multi-Stage Stimulation of Unconventional ResourcesContains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits
Hydraulic fracturing has been used to stimulate hydrocarbon reservoirs for over 70 years, yet no single optimal methodology has emerged.
