The paper will describe the hydraulic fracturing technologies that have been applied to San Andres formation over the past two years. The use of known fracturing technologies that have been applied include minifrac analysis, fluid quality control, and the use of resin coated proppant to control proppant flowback. In addition the application of real-time fracture analysis and the use of point-source perforating will be discussed.

Results indicate that a fully integrated hydraulic fracturing well completion program can lead to improved production. These results are enhanced by incorporating various in-house departments with various departments from a single source supplier. In this way an integrated team approach is established.
