Triple Stack Play Attracts Focus For Appalachian Operators
The Marcellus downhole completions recipe is carved in sand, so to speak. Average sand volumes now exceed 10 million pounds per well as operators standardize on slickwater treatments with high proppant loading, generally characterized as 400,000 pounds of proppant per stage. Marcellus operators are coping with the current downturn by targeting more formations in the stacked play Appalachian Basin, drilling as many as nine wells per pad with three separate formations as objectives in a triple stack play program first noted in the February 2015 Heard in the Field downhole completions report. Activity has slowed in the Utica and this report therefore reflects a greater weighting toward practices in the Marcellus where wells are shallower, laterals shorter and proppant use, while high, below levels consumed in the deeper Utica. More than 70% of wells are completed using zipper fracks.
