Course Credit: 0.1 CEU, 1 PDH

Shales and other low-permeability formations require multistage completions, hydraulic fracturing, and horizontal wells to produce at economic rates. This webinar focuses on the multistage completion systems that are used in these applications, including plug-and-perf, ball-activated systems (frac sleeves), and coiled tubing-activated systems (annular fracturing). Participants will learn the different types of wellbore completion options and how they compare in different applications. Also, the challenges and options of refracturing existing wells will be discussed.

Topics include:

– The basics of hydraulic fracturing theory and design
– Wellbore completion options for multistage hydraulic fracturing

Plug-and-perf completions
Ball-activated completion systems (frac sleeves)
Coiled-tubing-activated completions systems (annular fracturing)
– New multistage completion technologies
– Benefits and considerations for each completion system
– Application specific solutions for wellbore completion design
– Refracturing options for existing wells
