Design, implementation, and optimization
In North America, virtually every producing well on land has been hydraulically fractured, and the way the fracture treatment is designed has a direct impact on the operator’s success.
Many E&P companies have walked away from very successful shale plays because the wrong fracture treatment failed to produce results.
Our core objective
Massive hydrocarbon reserves, enough to produce energy to the growing population for many years, are locked in low-permeability reservoirs around the world.
Many of these plays have been deemed inviable with conventional drilling, due to the slow release rate from tight pores in the rock.
By creating intricate, interconnected fracture systems in the rock with water injected under high pressure, producers are able to extract fuels in exponentially higher volumes.
How we define success
Ely and Associates measures its success by an objective, fool-proof standard: ongoing productivity. A high production well that quickly tapers off in production has little value to an E&P.
By prescribing–and applying–the proper stimulation, we have high initial production, and our production stays high to keep wells profitable.
