i follow xto closely because i have a lease with them. i ran across this power point presentation which is a case study of some of their efforts and experimentation to improve their production rates. i am hoping there will be some members that can help with some of the technical terms. for example, i suppose clusters on a perf would indicate how many charges? also, what is a "standard toe frac".
there are other things i dont understand on the report, but, i am left feeling that maybe by the time they make it back to me to drill again, perhaps they will have mastered their techniques and can maximize on every well...including mine!!!
Thank you for posting this paper. I learned a lot and was most impressed with XTO. I have WI in several Smackover wells which XTO drilled and have observed drilling and fracking onsite. I have not done so on a horizontal well. i hope i live long enough to see them drill horizontal Smackover on my land.
Thanks again. Sorry we did'nt get to make trip to South LA last year.
