Lessons Learned from the First Successful Hydraulic Fracture Treatment in UAE Deep Pre-khuff Clastics

The field of this study is located offshore Abu Dhabi (UAE). The primary target reservoir is the Pre-Khuff Fm., a deep tight gas sandstone that can be found at depths exciding 16,000 ft with temperatures above 350º F. The objective of this presentation is to describe the analysis, design and implementation of hydraulic fracturing technologies that improved the well performance by more than 800% in the first successful hydraulic fracture treatment pumped offshore Abu Dhabi.

Well Stimulation and Sand Control

Diagnose production problems related to formation damage and recommend appropriate solutions. Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: diagnose various types of formation damage and identify stimulation candidates, design a matrix acid stimulation treatment based on specific well conditions and reservoir characteristics, specify the materials, equipment and pumping schedule for a hydraulic fracturing procedure, and apply traditional and modern sand control methods to optimize well productivity.

Extended -Time Conductivity Testing of Proppant at 0.5 lb/ft2 Used for Slickwater Multi-Stage Horizontal Completions

The presentation reviews the results of taking three 40/70 mesh proppants commonly used for multi-stage horizontal well slickwater completions in North America and testing them at 0.5 lb/ft2 over 1000 hours of "extended time” at stress and temperature conditions representative of the Bakken formation of North Dakota. The results presented give a clear insight into the degree of damage occurring in the reservoir due to time at stress and temperature.
