Frac hits on small vertical producers

Recommended Posts


Any small vertical producers having issues with "frac hits" to their older wells by other companies? I'm in Oklahoma and several friends of mine are dealing with issues from frac hits by other companies close to their production. Effects range from watered out wells to completely sanded in.

The Oklahoma Corporation Commission has recommendations of a 5 day notice to frac jobs encroaching within 1/2 mile, however fracture propagation is still causing damage. Shutting the well in to allow resevior pressure to build offers little resistance, as most of the affected wells are shallow low pressure wells.

Anyone else having similar issues?

That would be a bummer to be a producer with a low-volume but profitable well and it gets killed!

Yes, read that article, there's another that goes pretty much along those same lines
