Tail-in with CARBOAIR ceramic proppant improves reservoir drainage, extends productive life of well
The effective stimulation of a “wildcat” well with a thin gross pay (100 ft. section gross interval) in the 2nd Bone Springs formation. The operator drilled this well based upon vertical open hole log data from a nearby well. There were no wells within six square miles when this well was drilled. Typical high pump rate slickwater fracs with 100 mesh and 40/70 mesh sand are common in the area. The design goal was to achieve a greater propped frac half-length in the formation to optimize the thin gross pay, with the intent to flatten production decline in this marginal area.
