Horizontal Drilling and Fracture Stimulation of a Series of Stacked, Tight Oil and Gas Sands
MPG Petroleum, Inc. has identified a series of stacked, tight, oil and gas sands that appear to exist over an expansive area. The high gravity oil and high, Btu natural gas pay targets contain proven undeveloped (PUD) reserves. The Support Well providing these data, provided flow tests reports, mud log, oil and gas sample and core analysis. 3D seismic data reveals amplitude anomalies (direct hydrocarbon indicators aka ‘bright spots’) associated with each of the potential pay sands. They range in area from 40 to 175 Acres but cannot be produced commercially from the vertically drilled Support Well because these sands are too “tight” (high clay content, low permeability and low porosity) to sustain commercial flow. The Support Well has 3600 psi shut in pressure.
MPG will utIlize the Support Well as a pilot hole from which to drill a Horizontal Well and sand fracture stimulate the largest and thickest amplitude anomaly reservoir, the 8900’ Deltaic. The technique has been proven highly successful in other formations, but MPG Petroleum, Inc. and the Participants of the Marietta Prospect will be the first to apply this technology to this area and to this specific formation.
Robust flow rates and high cumulative recoveries are expected. Many new horizontal wells may be drilled as a result. Ample infrastructure exists, creating a quick turnaround from investment to revenue in the success case.
