The most common manifestation of enhanced completion is found in significant increases in prop pant volume, usually involving natural sand. Dr. James Crafton, Founder, Performance Sciences, Inc., discusses the rise in prop pant volumes in horizontal wells and how treatment strategies influence net present value (NPV) versus estimated ultimate recovery (EUR), including the growing use of 100-mesh sand.
