Unconventional Horizontal Multistage Fracture Completions have a vast acceptance worldwide and is proven in various Geographical and Geological setups in producing the Initial Oil and Gas in Place. The most immense method of conducting the Multistage Horizontal Fracturing operations is through the "Plug and Perf" method. This technique is one of the most practiced way of conducting the operations in a time effective and a safe manner. This usually entails a conveyance method with threaded joints or Coiled Tubing. Other conveyance methods can also be Electric Line, however Coiled Tubing/Threaded Joint is needed for the later part of operations to bring the well online for production. The Coiled Tubing is a fast and effective way to complete the operations necessary for achieving the well design targets.

Currently most of the operations are done in the same fashion, where most of the operational problems are not counted in while planning initially. This paper will give an insight on the optimization of such operations in Horizontal Wells and especially wells with an angle more than 90°.

This paper will describe the optimizations done to make the operations much more time effective and efficient in terms of equipment and resources through field experience and published data. These optimizations can be utilized for pre-job designs, Well Bore Clean Outs (WBCU), CP Setting, Motor Design, Mill Design, Milling parameters, Extended Reach Issues and Post Milling Practices.
