Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

Fracpacking and fracturing are well established techniques carried out for sand control and production enhancement respectively. Recent work on fracture perforations (perforations in the fracture plane) and off-plane perforations (perforations not aligned with the fracture plane) has highlighted the importance of all perforations in terms of fracture and reservoir connectivity. Depending on the reservoir permeability, perforation shot density and near wellbore fracture alignment with the preferred fracture plane, the production load is always shared between the fracture and perforations and can potentially affect overall productivity. However, the connectivity aspect is often ignored during pumping operations,that can result in sub-optimal fracture placement. 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.
