Description

This first annual report of DOE Contract No. EY-76-C-08-0685 presents the beginning efforts of a chemical explosive fracturing program to stimulate Devonian shale gas production in eastern Kentucky. A 12-year old below average production gas well was obtained as the first test well in a three well program. Selection was based on geological, off-set well and surface lineament factors. Prior to stimulation, the well was to be cleaned out and flow tested as a data base for post-shot evaluation. Initial clean out was hampered due to water inflow. It became necessary to cement in a new casing liner to seal ... continued below

Description

This first annual report of DOE Contract No. EY-76-C-08-0685 presents the beginning efforts of a chemical explosive fracturing program to stimulate Devonian shale gas production in eastern Kentucky. A 12-year old below average production gas well was obtained as the first test well in a three well program. Selection was based on geological, off-set well and surface lineament factors. Prior to stimulation, the well was to be cleaned out and flow tested as a data base for post-shot evaluation. Initial clean out was hampered due to water inflow. It became necessary to cement in a new casing liner to seal the wellbore from the subsurface water which had corroded through the old casing. Clean out to total depth was successfully accomplished with a cable too rig. The well is now being flow tested in preparation for chemical explosive stimulation. Gamma ray, temperature and caliper logs, and the procedures for clean out and well testing are appendices to the report.
