WELL STIMULATION IN OREDO WELL USING HYDRAULIC FRACTURING

Hydraulic fracturing plays a key role in the economic production of hydrocarbons from a reservoir by inducing permeable channels to improve the drainage area and to ease flow of oil and gas into the wellbore (Burton et al, 2002). A pressure transient test in Oredo O well, Oredo field located in Benin city, Nigeria, revealed a skin factor of +7.58 and flow efficiency of 0.53 (Kelechi et al, 2015). These are indications of a damaged well. PROSPER software (production system performance) has bee...
