When fractures are open and propped as volume is stimulated, the build-up of stress shadow along the well bore may increase treatment pressures on the order of 1000 psi. If stages are developed too quickly, you can elevate the stress shadow to the point of increasing geomechanical barriers.
The hydraulic fracturing of wells to create tight cluster spacing in low permeability shale formations develops a dynamic buildup of stress that increases as stages move along the length of the well bore. One of those stressors, the stress shadow, is a dynamic pressure that exhibits when you’re fracking the well.
Today, hear from CEO, Troy Ruths as he discusses well spacing and stage design including proppant per foot, perf diameter, fluid per cluster, stress shadow, and other relevant concerns. Lowering upfront capital investment for better capital efficiency is directly tied to the stage design of full cube development.
