This project attempts to demonstrate the effectiveness of exploiting thin-layered,
low-energy deposits at the distal margin of a prograding turbidite complex through
the use of hydraulically fractured horizontal or high-angle wells. The combination of a
horizontal-or high-angle well and hydraulic fracturing will allow greater pay exposure
than can be achieved with conventional vertical wells while maintaining vertical
communication between thin interbedded layers and the wellbore.
Here’s what’s next.
