Liberty’s Howard Melcher, Mike Mayerhofer, Karn Agarwal and Ray Ellis, recently published a piece in E&P Plus magazine, “Shale frac designs move to just-good-enough proppant economics”, discussing the importance of proppant selection. “There is no clear evidence that higher conductivity proppants (either white sand versus regional sand or ceramic proppants versus white sand) result in better well performance and economics.” Check out the full piece below! https://epplus.hartenergy.com/issue/march-2021/shale-frac-designs-move-to-just-good-enough-proppant-economics/?fbclid=IwAR2Qhfi-o5JAfTHFc17wdh7hW82Sx4vR0C5BFWaXWrjM5I1QGQD318MSwDc
Liberty is excited to share our 2020 Annual Report. In 2020 Liberty faced serious challenges, as did our industry, country, and the world. Liberty responded rapidly and decisively to the COVID-19 pandemic and to the subsequent plunge in business activity in the U.S. oil and gas industry. The safety of our team members and their families came first.
“Multiple-Basin Analyses Affirm Performance of Regional Frac Sands” By, Howard Melcher, Mike Mayerhofer, Karn Agarwal, and Ely Lolon. DENVER–Even after more than a decade of concentrated drilling and completion activity and tens of thousands of wells on production, optimizing the horizontal development of liquids-rich resource plays remains an incomplete science. Several questions have not yet been fully answered regarding wellbore spacing, parent/child well interactions, lateral length, completion design, perforation strategy, etc. One such optimization question is how proppant type affects the conductivity of the created propped fractures…. https://www.nxtbook.com/nxtbooks/aogr/202012/index.php#/p/42
Liberty was founded in 2011 with the mission to build a different frac company. Liberty founders each bring over 20 years of technology thought leadership and operations excellence that have been powering the shale revolution from its beginnings in the late 1990s. We are dedicated to partnering with leading exploration and production companies to apply technology innovations and superior operations. From day one we have been committed to reducing our customers’ cost of producing a barrel of oil.
Liberty will continue to place faith in our people and will invest in hiring, training and retaining the best and brightest individuals in our field. Building partnerships with our customers and understanding what drives their success is what sets Liberty apart… when they succeed, we succeed. We are excited to lead change in the industry and continue to make our customers stronger by building better wells faster, safer, and cleaner.
