  • Bradford Sandstone (Injection Well)

    Formation: Bradford Sandstone
    (Injection Well)
    Formation Depth: 1600′
    Prior Injection: 0 BWPD
    After Stimulation: 90 BWPD
    Sustained: 90 BWPD

    An injection well in Cattaraugus County, New York, was stimulated with the GasGun. The well is part of a large waterflood field and was completed open hole in the Bradford sandstone formation at an approximate depth of 1600 feet. Prior to the stimulation the operator could not inject any fluid at all. 130 feet of the Bradford sand was stimulated with the GasGun. The operator was immediately able to inject an average of 90 BWPD. After several months the well was still holding at its post stimulation rates. For comparison, the operator tried to stimulate two similar wells with nitroglycerine. After the nitro shots they could only inject a maximum of 15 BWPD and had significant well clean out expenses. Based on these results the operator went on to stimulate all the injection wells and many of the producing wells in the field with the GasGun. To date, over 500 GasGuns have been shot in this particular field.

    (Injection Well)
    Formation Depth: 1800′
    Prior Injection: 0 BWPD
    After Stimulation: 60 BWPD

    An injection well in Cattaraugus County, New York, was stimulated with the GasGun. The well was completed open hole in the Bradford formation at an approximate depth of 1800 feet. Prior to the stimulation the operator could not inject any fluid at all. 120 feet of zone was stimulated with the GasGun. They were immediately able to inject an average of 60 BWPD. After several months the well was still holding at its post stimulation rates.
