Mid-Stage Diversion

A customer began using SlicFrac Perf POD™ plugs, for mid-stage diversion, to improve perf cluster efficiency and increase overall production. To optimize procedure and reduce completion costs, the customer began to exclude a portion of the bridge plugs, resulting in extended stage lengths...

SlicFrac Eliminates Bashing

Stimulating neighboring wellbores can sometimes harm production of the original (parent) well. The subsequent well (child) seldom produces as much as the parent, as the reservoir can become depleted over time. Maintaining near wellbore stimulation of the child wells can help to eliminate the bashing effect...

SlicFrac Seals Multistage Sleeve

An alternative to conventional plug ‘n perf completions is a multistage sleeve system. Sleeves are installed directly into the casing string, placed throughout the lateral section at points of interest, and cemented in hole...

Diverting With SlicFrac

The Plug ‘n Perf completion method utilizes a single wireline run to set a bridge plug for isolation and then perforate the next interval, prior to frac stimulation. In horizontal applications, the wireline assembly is pumped down hole to reach the desired depth...

Vertical Recompletion

Refracturing or recompleting existing wells can prove to be a cost effective solution for an increase in production, in comparison to drilling/completing a new wellbore. With both horizontal and vertical wellbores, previous completion designs may not have been optimized for cluster spacing/efficiency...

Wireline Deployed PODs

The typical Plug ‘n Perf completion utilizes a single wireline run to set a bridge plug and then perforate the next interval prior to frac stimulation. The number of bridge plugs utilized in a single wellbore is dependent on the length of lateral, number of clusters and stage spacing...

Full Well Diversion

Due to multiple casing ID restrictions, a customer in the DJ Basin required an alternative solution to isolate intervals and effectively stimulate the entire lateral. The customer replaced all frac plugs with SlicFrac Perf POD™ plugs, deployed between each frac stimulation to isolate and divert the flow to the next interval of perforations...

Diversion Optimization in New Well Completions
Completion optimization continues to be a priority for many operators. The process of adding diverter to hydraulic fracturing treatments remains one of the fastest growing techniques to gain operational efficiency while maintaining the desired reservoir contact during the treatment. Case studies in this paper are utilized to illustrate the effects of diversion on the overall completion program...
