This paper presents the results of fracture stimulation treatments on the Red Fork formation in the Anadarko basin. All wells studied are located in Roger Mills and Custer counties of Oklahoma (Fig. 14). Only data for which valid production information was available are included.

Fracturing techniques and their results using five different stimulation fluids are examined; cross-linked water base, gelled water (non cross-linked), gelled diesel, gelled carbon dioxide, and foamed carbon dioxide with water as the liquid phase. Three types of propping agents have been used in various grades in conjunction with the above stimulation fluids; sand, intermediate strength proppant and high strength sintered bauxite.

A discussion of various treatment parameters and their possible overall effect on the production results are presented.
