Tight sandstone reservoirs under this project have been a challenge to stimulate due the high breakdown pressure required to create the fracture, and a challenge on production recovery due fast decline observed in some of these wells. Exploring Multi Stage Fracturing completion in horizontal wells in these tight sandstone reservoirs increases the overall reservoir exposure to stimulation treatments by Hydraulic Fracturing, and expects a better and longer production performance. This paper evaluates the recently deployed Open Hole – Multi Stage Fracturing completions (OH-MSF) over tight sandstone gas reservoirs.
