Horn River wells are the most frac intensive jobs with up to 30 stages per well. I expect the Global Shale Revolution to last 20 year — which bakes success into the cake right now for a lot of fracing companies. Click here to watch it.
As a result, we see fracturing companies grabbing a higher percentage of the pie. With the proliferation of unconventional resource plays, fracs have increased not only in size but in pumping rates as well…some regions have gone to hour operations…. In an effort to combat the higher repairs and maintenance costs many pumpers have added more horsepower on location than is actually needed to complete the job. Essentially, this allows the wear-and-tear to be spread over more equipment…it requires more equipment to be deployed, thereby helping to absorb more capacity.
Some of it is out of the box innovative technology that is leapfrogging industry expectations in terms of production and cash flow fracking can produce.
