Montney wells completed with ceramic proppant achieve 34% higher production than sand-only completed wells
A study of the first year production rates from 17 wells (with comparable total vertical depths, stages, lateral lengths and pumped proppant mass) has shown that wells with a combined sand-ceramic completion significantly outperform sand-only completed wells.
The typical vertical depth of wells in the Montney play lead to formation closure stresses outside the effective range of sand or low quality ceramic proppant. The result is reduced fracture conductivity, lower effective propped fracture lengths and lower well productivity.
