Fishbones outperforms hydraulic fracturing

29 December 2018

An operator in North Africa recently drilled a new onshore well in a tight limestone formation and subsequently deployed a Fishbones Jetting system equipped with 30 Fishbones subs (120 laterals).

Initial inflow tests show extremely encouraging results with gas production rates exceeding the rates from comparable offset wells placed in the same formation that were stimulated by means of hydraulic fracturing. 


Fishbones expects the success in this application will open a new market for Fishbones Stimulation Technology in North Africa, repeating our experience in the Middle East Gulf Region where Fishbones has in the last three years been deployed in multiple wells in five different countries.
