Fracturing With Height Control Extends the Life of Mature Reservoirs in the Pannonian Basin

The complete paper describes the first implementation of a solution to control fracture height for conventional wells in the Pannonian Basin.

Hydraulic proppant fracturing is an effective tool in mature, low-permeability reservoirs found in the Pannonian Basin. However, for wells already producing with high water cut, even a small fracture extension into a water-bearing zone offsets the gains in hydrocarbon production. Fracture-geometry-control (FGC) techniques limit increases in water cut.
