DEVONIAN GAS TECHNOLOGY-2 CORE ANALYSIS AND CT IMAGING IMPROVE SHALE COMPLETIONS

M.E. Blauch, J.J. Venditto Halliburton Services Duncan, Okla. E. Rothman, P. Hyde Columbia Natural Resources Inc. Charleston, W.Va. To improve hydraulic fracturing efficiency in Devonian shales, core analysis and computerized tomography (CT) can provide data for orienting perforations, determining fracture direction, and selecting deviated well trajectories. This article is the second of a five-part series on technology tested in a West Virginia well for improving the economics of developing
