Paper presented at the SPE Oklahoma City Oil and Gas Symposium, April 9–10, 2019
Paper Number: SPE-195227-MS
... Abstract The recent and rapid success of using high viscosity friction reducers (HVFRs) in hydraulic fracturing treatments is due to several advantages over other fracture fluids (e.g. linear gel), which include better proppant carrying capability, induce more complex fracture system network...

... polyacrylamide, is commonly used to overcome pipe friction at 1 gal/Mgal or lower. To carry proppant into fractures, it is commonly assumed that the higher viscosity the HVFR yields, the better the proppant transport, necessitating higher HVFR concentrations than 1 gal/Mgal. However, a field study within the...

Paper Number: SPE-195226-MS
... Abstract This paper presents a data driven approach to answer the question of whether premium, high strength white sand proppant, while more expensive than regional (brown) sand, is justified due to its alleged ability to make better producing wells. For this study, 739 horizontal wells with...

Paper Number: SPE-195212-MS
... The results of Runs 1 to 5 demonstrate the role of proppant size and treatment rates in creating fracture complexity in slickwater fracturing. It is clearly shown that slickwater treatments with smaller proppant size (Run 2) and higher rates have the potential to significantly enhance the...
