Completion engineers and geologists always argue about where credit is due for better producing wells: better rock or better fracs? We have developed a comparison approach that allows for a more apples-to apples well production comparison by combining all geological variations in one simple parameter – long term water cut.
The signature Liberty 2Cs Design creates fracs with Complexity with sufficient Conductivity to result in some of the best Bakken producers. Liberty’s method of breaking up shale is a brute-force “slash-hammer approach” with high rate, large volume slickwater jobs. A “toy hammer approach” with tiny gel volumes pumped at low rate through ballsleeve completions simply does not create the intensity in surface area that shale wells need.
