DGS Divert for Near Wellbore (NWB) Diversion
As wells are stimulated the fluids take the path of least resistance. Often this creates “super clusters” and fails to evenly treat the entire interval leaving many clusters untreated or under treated. DGS Diverters work to temporarily block the most active clusters allowing new clusters to initiate or increase the level of treatment.
Other techniques of controlling these runaway fractures help but they never can create as balanced of a treatment as diverters and they also fail to address communication between stages behind pipe which is estimated to occur in 30% of stages based on tracer logs.
The benefits of using our near wellbore diverters follow:
