  • Canyon Sandstone

    Formation: Canyon Sandstone
    Formation Depth: 2962′
    Prior Production: None (new well)
    After Stimulation: 190 MCF/D

    A new well in Sutton County, Texas, was stimulated with two 4 foot GasGuns and a 10 foot GasGun. This well is a cased hole completion in the Canyon sandstone formation at a depth of 2962 feet. After the three GasGun shots, the well came in making 190 MCF/D. The operator was very pleased with the results of the stimulation.

  • San Andres Dolomite

    Formation: San Andres Dolomite
    Formation Depth: 1460′
    Prior Production: 0 BOPD
    After Stimulation: 42 BOPD
    Sustained: 30 BOPD

    A well in Crockett County, Texas, was stimulated with two 10 foot GasGuns. This is a cased hole well which was recompleted by drilling out an old bridge plug, and then reperforating the San Andres formation at a depth of 1460 feet. There was no show of oil after the perforating was completed. The operator felt he needed to use the GasGun to get deeper into the formation. Immediately after the stimulation, production came in at 15 BOPD and 70 BWPD. On the second day it made 38 BOPD & 14 BWPD . On the third day it made 42 BOPD and 2.5 BWPD. Oil production remained steady at 40 BOPD for a month and then the operator decided to throttle it back to 30 BOPD.

    Formation: Woodbine Sandstone
    Formation Depth: Avg. 3500′
    (13 wells)
    Prior Production: 0 (wells pump off)
    After Stimulation: 9 of 13 are now able to produce

    A series of 13 wells in Titus County, Texas, were stimulated with the GasGun. These wells are all cased hole completions in the Woodbine sandstone formation at an average depth of 3500 feet. The operator has more than 100 wells in the area, most of which have been shut-in since the mid-1990’s. The operator chose to make the GasGun and another competing propellant stimulation tool a part of their recompletion program. Prior to any stimulation the wells would just pump-off very quickly making them uneconomical to operate. Nine of the thirteen wells treated with the GasGun have allowed the operator to keep the wells on pump and they are “very pleased” with the well’s level of production. The operator also tried a competing propellant stimulation tool in 5 wells out of the same field and had no improvement in production from any of those treatments.

  • Flippen Limestone

    Formation: Flippen Limestone
    Formation Depth: 2352′
    Prior Production: 3 BOPD
    After Stimulation: 8 BOPD & 30 MCF/D

    A well in Taylor County, Texas was stimulated with a 6 foot GasGun. This well is an open hole completion in the Flippen sandstone formation at a depth of 2352 feet. After the GasGun stimulation, production went from 3 BOPD and 1 BWPD to 8 BOPD, 1 BWPD, and 30 MCF/D.

  • Flippen Limestone

    Formation: Flippen Limestone
    Formation Depth: 1802′
    Prior Production: 0 BOPD
    After Stimulation: 5 BOPD

    A well in Jones County, Texas, was stimulated with a 4 foot GasGun. This is a cased hole completion in the Flippen limestone formation at a depth of 1802 feet. Production in the well went from 0 BOPD to 5 BOPD and was also making some gas.

  • Devonian Limestone

    Formation: Devonian Limestone
    Formation Depth: 9798′
    Prior Production: 29 BOPD
    After Stimulation: 82 BOPD

    A well in Crane County, Texas, was stimulated with a 12 foot GasGun. This well was completed open hole in a Devonian lime at a depth of 9798 feet. The well had some paraffin problems, and its production, which started out at 135 BOPD, had slowly fallen to 29 BOPD. After the GasGun stimulation, production came in at 82 BOPD.

  • Not Available

    Formation: Not Available
    Formation Depth: 714′
    Prior Production: None (new well)
    After Stimulation: 12 BOPD & 60 BWPD

    A shallow well in Montague County, Texas, was stimulated with an 8 foot GasGun. This well is a cased hole completion with the treated interval at a depth of 714 feet. The operator has several hundred wells in the area and frequently stimulates them with a small hydraulic fracture treatment. The frac treatments typically bring the wells in at 2 BOPD and 200 BWPD. Production after the GasGun stimulation was 12 BOPD and 60 BWPD.

  • Devonian Limestone

    Formation: Devonian Limestone
    Formation Depth: 7500′
    Prior Production: 38 BOPD & 37 MCF/D
    After Stimulation: 100 BOPD & 55 MCF/D
    Sustained: 55 BOPD & 55 MCF/D

    A new well in Crane County, Texas, was stimulated with two 10 foot GasGuns. This is an open hole well which was completed in a Devonian formation at a depth of approximately 7500 feet. Oil production went from 38 to 100 BOPD, and gas production went from 37 to 55 MCF/D after the GasGun treatment. Prior to the stimulation, the operator did some production modeling based on six 20 foot long fractures extending out from the wellbore. Based on this modeling they anticipated initial production to increase to 68 BOPD. The operator was very pleased to see actual results come in better than they expected.
