Denham Energy has the necessary software and experience to properly design completions for all types of reservoirs and fluids ranging from Retrograde, Volatile, and Black oil to Wet and Dry Gas. We offer the following services to all clients:
- Petroleum Consulting specializing in Completion Design, Hydraulic Fracturing and Acidizing Stimulation Design, On-Site Supervision, and Post-Stimulation Evaluation.
- Recognized industry experts in Fractured Shale completions and hydraulic fracturing
- Pre-fracture Injection Pump-In and Fall-off engineering design and interpretation
- Post-Fracture Production Data Analysis Including Future Projections of Phase Producing Rates and Estimated Ultimate Recoveries
- Field Consulting Services for Completions and Workovers
Denham Energy engineers and consultants specialize in completion and stimulation design on all types of unconventional low permeability sandstone and limestone reservoirs and fractured shale reservoirs. Company experience covers all low permeability oil and gas basins in the United States and years of individual experience in Fractured Shale Reservoirs, including the Barnett Shale, Woodford Shale, Fayetteville Shale, Haynesville Shale, Eagle Ford Shale, Marcellus/Utica Shale, Bakken Shale, Niobrara Shale.
We also make completion design recommendations for optimizing stimulation, such as cementing programs, perforation placement and breakdown/ballout procedures. Whether in a horizontal or vertical wellbore orientation, perforating design is critical to achieving proper fracture placement. Many completions require Limited Entry and other techniques to ensure proper fracture placement.
Denham Energy personnel perform a detailed formation evaluation prior to the design of a stimulation treatment. We incorporate all available data including well tests, openhole and cased-hole logs, offset production performance, and core analysis data in the design of an optimized fracture stimulation or acidizing treatment.
Once the Pre-Stimulation Evaluation is completed, Denham Energy engineers use state-of-the-art stimulation design software to design an optimum stimulation treatment. Our personnel work with industry suppliers to stay updated on the latest fluid and proppant selection technology. This extra step ensures that the client receives the best available fracturing fluid, additives, and proppants for the application in question.
Stimulation Supervision and Quality Control
Denham Energy personnel have years of combined experience in field supervision and quality control of workover operations and stimulation treatments. Our workover experience includes rig operations, pressure pumping, coiled-tubing, stimulation, and perforating operations. Experience has shown that detailed supervision of the stimulation process and quality control of the fracturing fluids, proppants, and additives is essential for the success of all hydraulic fracture treatments. Monitoring fluid viscosity and conducting pre- and post-treatment inventories are performed on every treatment we supervise.
Denham Energy also provides intense quality control measures for all clients which include the pre-job analysis of fluid viscosity on site at in-situ conditions, to determine proper additive loadings, gel stability and proper breaker schedules. Denham Energy also has considerable experience in supervising flowback operations to optimize flow back of the treatment and minimize damage to the newly created fracture.
Post Stimulation Evaluation
Denham Energy consultants are trained in Post-Fracture Analysis which includes reservoir simulation and PDA (Production Data Analysis). These engineering functions are critical to properly determine critical reservoir parameters, completion effectiveness, and treatment optimization.
Denham Energy consultants are trained in all workover, completion, and coiled tubing operations to prepare the wellbore for completion, perform all completion and stimulation operations, and design and supervise coiled tubing/snubbing unit/completion rig activities to drill out sliding sleeves or frac plugs and prepare the well for production. Denham Energy performs these services routinely and safely for a variety of our clients.
Once the well is cleaned out, the Christmas Tree landed and secured, Denham Energy consultants have the expertise to monitor the well and place it on production.
