... Abstract A drilling team has focused on increasing lateral lengths in the Marcellus Shale over the past couple of years. The team reevaluated prior drilling processes that had been in place for 7,000’ to 9,000’ laterals in order to determine what operational practices would need to be revised...

... Abstract With the increase in average lateral length for horizontal wells comes increased challenges for reaching total depth (TD) with the production casing. Any production interval left un-cased will not contribute to initial or ultimate production or be booked as reserves, which can have a...

... Abstract Unconventional shale resources are drilled horizontally following the geologic bed dip upward or downward and completed with multi-stage fracturing to maximize reservoir contact. A recent study in Oklahoma claimed that toe-up (inclined upward) laterals yield the highest production rate...
