HIGH-ENERGY GAS FRACTURING SUCCEEDS IN CENTRAL LAKE ERIE
Paul A. Druet, Sara J. O'Connor Telesis Oil and Gas London, Ont. High-energy gas fracturing proved effective for stimulation of two wells producing gas from sandstone reservoirs in central Lake Erie. A controlled propellant deflagration is used in the high-energy gas fracturing (HEGF) technique. The two test wells had perforated gas pay with permeabilities in the range of 4-27 md.
