  • Gas Gun vs. 5 Tonne Sand FracFormation: Basal Belly River
    Formation Depth: Various (6 wells)
    Prior Production: 0 (new wells)
    After Stimulation: Avg. of 20 MCF/D

    A major Canadian producer decided to test the GasGun against traditional stage fracs in their shallow gas wells. They stimulated 6 wells with the GasGun and 6 wells using 5 tonne sand fracs. The producer conducted pressure transient analysis on all 12 wells and provided us with the results. Production results achieved by the GasGun were equivalent to the fracs and were a fraction of the cost. For details of the pressure transient analysis please click the link to the right.

  • Taber sandstoneFormation: Taber sandstone
    Formation Depth: 1122 – 1135 Meters
    Prior Production: 2-3 BOE & 3 MCF/D
    After Stimulation: 7 BOE & 3 MCF/D
    After 2 Months: 6 BOE & 4 MCF/D

    A well located in Alberta, Canada, was stimulated with three 2 meter (6.6 feet) GasGuns. This well is a cased hole completion in the Taber sandstone formation. The three intervals that were stimulated ranged in depth from 1122 meters (3681 feet) to 1135 meters (3724 feet). Prior to the GasGun the well was making 2-3 BOE and 3 MCF/D. After the stimulation production increased to 7 BOE and 3 MCF/D. Two months later it was making 6 BOE and 4 MCF/D.

  • Mannville sandstoneFormation: Mannville sandstone
    Formation Depth: 1138 Meters
    Prior Production: 215 MCF/D
    After Stimulation: 342 MCF/D

    A well located in Alberta, Canada was stimulated with a 2 meter (6.6 feet) GasGun. This well is a cased hole completion in the Mannville sandstone formation at a depth of 1138 meters (3733 feet). Gas production in the well increased from 215 MCF/D to 342 MCF/D.

  • Lower Mannville SandFormation: Lower Mannville sand
    Formation Depth: 1057 Meters
    Prior Production: .8 m3/d (5 BOPD)
    After Stimulation: 3.95 m3/d (25 BOPD)
    After 2 Months: 1.87 m3/d (12 BOPD)

    A well located in the Turin field of Alberta, Canada, was stimulated with a 1.5 and 2 meter GasGun. This is a cased hole completion in the Lower Mannville sandstone formation at a depth of 1057 meters (3467 feet). The well was producing .8 m3/d prior to the GasGun shot. After the stimulation production increased to 3.95 m3/d and after two months settled in at 1.87 m3/d
