Abstract

The effect of perforated length and fractures on horizontal wells productivity was analyzed. Different empirical correlations, based on a small scale model, were developed to predict the horizontal well productivity using perforated length. It was observed that the increase in perforated length of the well increased the well productivity and flow rate under steady-state flow conditions. It was also observed that formations of vertical and horizontal fractures also yield higher well productivity.
