This paper documents the results of an active refracturing program in the North Westbrook Unit during the past two years. It was concluded that an increase in fracture conductivity could be attained by employing recent advances in hydraulic fracturing. The use of forced closure combined with the use of larger sand, more aggressive proppant schedules, and intense quality control has resulted in a significant increase in reserves through refracturing.
