StimWell Services Successfully Completes the Largest Proppant Fracturing Mobilization in the North Sea


StimWell Services Successfully Completes the Largest Proppant Fracturing Mobilization in the North Sea.

In September, the StimWell Services Vessel, Island Patriot successfully completed a major proppant fracturing campaign for Wintershall in the Upper and Lower Slochteren (Rotliegend) in the Dutch Sector of the North Sea. The Campaign consisted of 5 tip-screenout fractures and utilized ball-activated sliding sleeves in a horizontal sub-sea completion.

This was the largest ever single mobilization for a proppant fracturing campaign in the North Sea. The vessel left Esbjerg loaded with over 2,500,000 lbs of coated proppant and completed all 5 zones with over 1,000 psi net pressure on each, a great success. The campaign lasted 19 days, 10 of which were waiting-on-weather and Wintershall were able to save valuable time by completing the campaign in just one single mobilization.

This was the first sub-sea multi-frac horizontal well to be completed in the North Sea and also the first to use the ball-activated sliding sleeve technique for tip-screenout fracturing in the North Sea. StimWell looks forward to moving forward with these services in the North Sea.
