Horizontal Wells: Completion and Evaluation
Introduces the deliverability equation for horizontal wells. Compares horizontal and vertical well performance. Identifies formation characteristics that favor horizontal wells, and discusses methods for their determination. Describes basic well configurations and completion designs. Looks at practical aspects of cementing, zonal isolation, casing design and sand control. Address guidelines for matrix acid treatments and hydraulic fracture stimulations.
