This week Liberty’s Pressure Control Equipment Lead, Janet Fuchs, is breaking down each element of pressure control equipment used on wireline locations, as well as discussing how Liberty handles well pressure.
Join Liberty Demand Management Engineer, Ryan Wachtstetter, as he discusses the different cable types in today’s industry as well as why greaseless wireline is the standard for Liberty.
Liberty Account Representative, Grace Bol, discusses perforating guns: how they came about, how they are used, and the basic mechanics of this wireline component.
Wireline Manager, Felix Dorante, gives a brief introduction into Liberty’s new product line and a basic overview on “What is Wireline?”
Friction along the wellbore, through the perforations and the near-wellbore area of the fracture can hide from us what is truly happening with frac pressures downhole. As VP of Engineering, Leen Weijers, demonstrates here in a comparable situation while he inflates a bike tire, there is a simple solution to obtaining an accurate downhole –…
In this home educational video, VP of Engineering, Leen Weijers, inflates the tire of his wheel barrow to introduce concepts of net pressure and closure stress, and shows how fracture width and net pressure are related.
Hydraulic Fracturing has been around since 1947 – and a lot has changed since then. Dr. Ouigee (Leen Weijers) breaks down the evolution of shale wells, covering the transition of technology and progress made in horizontal fracturing in five easy pieces.
Natural gas occurs naturally in many more places than you think. Doc Ouigee explores wetlands and ponds near his CO home to find natural gas and explains hyped videos of water faucets catching fire are not associated with hydraulic fracturing activity.
Liberty’s Doc Ouigee demonstrates in his Home Frac Lab how we can measure Poisson’s Ratio and why it is important for frac design optimization.
Fracking is not just about breaking rocks. It is also about pushing rock out of the way! How easy that is depends, amongst others, on the stiffness of the rock – or what we call the Young’s Modulus.
