“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new” Socrates
The attached article was recently written by e-Frac® to explain what we consider to be the stages of shale development. The oilfield thought that it had got used to turbulent times, but this one looks to be a real game-changer for oilfield personnel!
The Oil & Gas industry for too long has (wrongly) assumed that people will recognize the value of what we provide. “Blue Sky Thinking” in Science and Engineering are going to be critical in finding better solutions and not squandering the opportunity that we have now been given. Automation will help speed up the innovation process, but brilliant minds will still be required to provide the answers….. oh and don’t forget the reservoir!
Knowledge is power. Information is power. The secreting or hoarding of knowledge or information may be an act of tyranny camouflaged as humility. Robin Morgan
This is Part 2 of the document on testing for the selection of perforations. Perforations performance, phasing and distribution is the single most important controllable factor in completion design to maximize injection and production performance. If perforation selection is done based on the wrong test information this can easily lead to a treatment failure, which can then be (wrongly) blamed on the elusive ‘reservoir’.
The question to ask is what do we actually need from the perforation? e-Frac® completion design helps determine the question, to get the right answer!
“We are drowning in information but starved for knowledge” (J Nesbitt)
This is an updated general Shale document that is based on a background note done by #e-Frac® for the UK government in 2012. This document formed part of the #e-Frac® process that we developed for the regulator to help the public understand the long history of US shale production and the evolution of hydraulic fracturing technology.
It’s important to learn from the past, as we gain more knowledge about the future.
#e-Frac® has over a decade’s experience developing frac ESG audit programs and helping operators earn the social license. As the industry becomes increasingly automated its important that we have robust technical oversight to mitigate potential issues.

Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) factors are now being used to assess the sustainability and societal impact of operations. Investors want to understand the long-term value creation plan and receive credible information that supports long-term risk assessments.
e-Frac® is a pioneer in application of technology, policies and ‘best practices’ that meet the highest international ESG standards and we are specialists in helping earn the “social license”.
e-Frac® is actively involved in relevant industry oversight bodies and is committed to responsible working practices.
e-Frac® technology is applied according to:
e-Frac® is active in US & EU research consortia that are developing (disruptive) completion and reservoir optimization technology.
By use of bespoke programs, e-Frac® is able to help end users ensure that technology is introduced effectively and applied according to ‘industry best practices’, as part of a continuous improvement program.
e-Frac® ensures knowledge transfer by the use of remote and in-house support solutions that include:
Accredited Training Courses
e-Frac® specializes in disruptive technology development for remote, sustainable wellsite operations.
e-Frac® challenges the paradigm according to 5 core principles:
A sustainable energy future means wellsite operations will increasingly become automated, while needing to address requirements for greater accountability and socially responsibility.
