DEEPROP supercharges production uplift
and extends a well’s life
in complex plays providing an immediate ROI.
Achieving positive uplift in shale plays like the Permian Basin and Woodford SCOOP
requires proppants that penetrate smaller fractures and keep them open longer. Zeeosphere’s Deeprop® microproppant is precisely suited to maximize uplift by going where 100-mesh sand cannot – propping open a formation’s secondary fracture network to maximize conductivity and extend the productive life of the well.
*Field results from Permian, SCOOP, Barnett and Utica Basin Test Wells over 36 mos. have Uplift ranging from 10% to 81%.
Experience shows that Deeprop® works,
the facts speak for themselves.
As the Completion Manager for Vitruvian Exploration 2, we implemented the use of Deeprop® in 11 Deep Woodford completions in 2015 and 2016. The initial application of Deeprop® was in an area of the field where an increased number of natural fractures existed. We were at the upper limit of our treating pressures already, based on casing, so we utilized it in the pad to open up natural fractures and prevent a screen out. On each stage where we pumped the material in the pad we saw a decrease in average treating pressure by 500-800 psi. We didn’t screen out so we continued to do additional pairs tests to further vet the material. Not only was the average treating pressure lowered in each well, the EUR was higher on the well that Deeprop® was used in along with a shallower decline curve after 120 days. We continued with several more pairs tests with similar results. The EUR of the Deeprop® test wells were 18-34% higher (normalized by PPF sand pumped) at the 120 day mark. Each pair of wells tested had the same conclusion, the EUR of the Deeprop® test wells were higher than the direct offsets.
