Multi stage frac

Course Purposes

This course gives an overview for completing, fracturing, and refracturing shales and other low-permeability formations that require multistage hydraulic fracturing. Participants will learn the primary types of wellbore completion options, plug-and-perf, ball-activated systems, and coiled tubing-activated systems, and how they compare in different applications. Participants will also learn hydraulic fracturing and refracturing theory and design, including slick-water fracturing, cross-linked gels, fluids, proppants, additives, refracturing options, and identifying refracturing candidates.

Course Objectives:

By the end of this course the participant will be able to
  •   Identify the different types of multistage completions
  •   Recognize the benefits and considerations for each type of completion system
  •   Use knowledge gained to select completion based on their specific application
  •   Understand theory and design of fracturing and refracturing wells
  •   Compare the application specific challenges for a fracturing and refracturing job
  •   Apply knowledge gained to their fracturing and refracturing application
