Refracturing shale wells: not all it's cracked up to be?


Refracturing shale wells: not all it's cracked up to be?

Report summary

An increasing amount of attention has been placed on potentially restimulating mature shale wells.  Our analysis of historically refractured wells in the Bakken, Barnett, and Haynesville leads us to believe that some restimulations can actually have a P/I ratio larger than a new well.  Conversely though, others can erode value and reduce remaining reserves.

Description

Globally, the industry is looking for the next big unconventional discovery after the success seen in the U.S. Lower 48. Argentina's Vaca Muerta has shown it can go head to head with US plays. But, as investors looks for the next big unconventional opportunity, will Argentina be able to attract enough investment to exploit the shale's full potential?

This Vaca Muerta development study report provides ground-breaking well-by-well analysis of production, well performance, and economics. The play is divided into three distinct sub-plays and this report provides insight into production, acreage positions, costs, and type-well economics. The sub-plays likely to drive value creation are identified, as well as the oil and gas prices and efficiency gains needed to produce positive returns.

The study enables potential investors, governments and companies to evaluate the relative attractiveness and value of acreage positions. Furthermore, the study helps benchmark the performance of each Vaca Muerta sub-play with that of North American analogues.

These findings are based on original well data from Argentina along with Wood Mackenzie's expert analysis.
