• Testing XLE For Cost Savings in the DJ Basin: A Fiber Optic Case Study

    Historically, Great Western Petroleum has been an operator focused on efficiency without much focus on altering completion designs. Based on the successes of Extreme Limited Entry (XLE) in other basins, a project was constructed to test different XLE in the first zipper group of a two-zipper group pad. The objective of this study was to find a design that would yield the same production but with less cost.   This study was comprised of several different datasets with the primary focus being on Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) using wellbore fiber-optic cable. This paper presentation shows the efficacy of this deployment compared to its peers. 

    This presentation is from the 2022 SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference and Exhibition.
