The Morrow formation is one of the main targets of the drilling activity in Southeast, New Mexico. This paper presents background information including formation lithology derived from X-Ray diffraction data and scanning electron micrographs. Formation rock characteristics such as frac gradients, permeability, porosity and formation water properties are also presented. Completion techniques such as cementing practices, casing programs and perforating programs are reviewed. The stimulation fluids, volumes, injection rates, and types of proppant used are presented to provide an optimum completion program.
