Paper Number: SPE-209306-MS
... to be optimized to reduce liquid build-up in branch lines that contributed to large slugging events. The optimization resulted in a reduction in labor costs for managing slugging issues such as compressor shutdowns and flooding the inlet separator as slugging events became smaller and less frequent. It also...

.... This technology focuses on creating the most stimulated fracture surface area per volume of water injected, resulting in the same fracture surface area but with a large reduction in water injected. The reduction of the water leads to an improved well productivity index by minimizing water blockage around...
