How does Fishbones jetting work?
Fishbones jetting operations are simple – run the reservoir liner string as normal.
As many Fishbones subs as necessary for your well will be spaced out at even intervals and will deploy at depth.
Through pressure differentials across the liner, small diameter tubes (needles) will jet out simultaneously to penetrate the reservoir. High pressure fluid will jet away the formation ahead of the needles through a combination of erosion and acid chemical dissolution.
At full extension, achievable penetration is typically 12m/40ft, creating tangible stimulation effects and immediate results. The number of laterals deployed is completely tailored to the needs of your well, with 4 laterals deployed per sub.
Fishbones jetting can be used with acid for jetting of carbonates or non-reactive fluids for other formations.
