Many formations are too tight to produce oil and/or natural gas, and require a stimulation process to extract the resources.
In hydraulic fracturing, fluids carrying proppant are pumped into the well with enough pressure to fracture the rock. These fractures are typically only a few mm in width. The proppant is placed in the fractures to hold open the cracks. This allows the hydrocarbons to flow more easily to the wellbore and greatly improves the economics of the well. Daily hydrocarbon production is typically 3-5 times higher compared to offset wells that are not fractured. Another benefit is that over the life of the well a larger percentage of oil and gas in place is recovered from the well.
What can Tacrom offer
Our staff of trained and experienced engineers, supervisors and operators design and execute many types of frac systems ranging from acid fracs and proppant fracs with slickwater fluids, hybrid fluids, hydrocarbon fluids, Nitrogen or CO2 foam and conventional guar fluids.
We offer complete lab testing of all fluids and proppants.
We begin by analysing all historical well data and using state of the art stimulation software to design a treatment.
Real time data during and after the frac is imported and analysed to ensure each and every treatment is optimised for the specific well conditions.
The ultimate goal of each treatment is to achieve the highest Return On Investment possible for our clients.
