Halliburton & Eclipse Resources Complete Longest Lateral Well in USA

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 5/31/2016, Location: North America

Halliburton worked with Eclipse Resources Corporation to complete hydraulic fracturing of the extended reach lateral test well known as "Purple Hayes." The Utica Shale well had a lateral length of over 18,500 feet and was completed with 124 frac stages in 24 days. The total depth was 27,046 feet, including the lateral extension which Eclipse believes is the longest horizontal onshore lateral ever drilled in the United States.

The fracturing operations performed by Halliburton utilized the company’s industry-leading Q10™ pumps equipped with dual fuel technology, which performed with zero down time. In addition, SandCastle® PS-2500 units equipped with Halliburton Dust Control systems provided superior sand loading logistics while reducing the environmental footprint on site. The efficiencies achieved with this equipment allowed Eclipse to improve its daily completion rate by 20 percent over the original plan, lowering their ultimate cost per BOE.

Tony Angelle, area vice president for Halliburton said, "The Halliburton and Eclipse team worked incredibly efficiently on this well, setting 124 of our Obsidian® Frac plugs, averaging 5.3 frac stages per day and achieving a North America land record of 26,641 feet in plug set depth. We are proud this accomplishment was made using our complete Frac of the Future fleet, including dual fuel pumps that reduced fuel consumption by 40 percent."

Thomas Liberatore, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Eclipse said, "I am pleased to say that the drilling and completion of the well progressed almost exactly as designed, which, although expected by us, was truly remarkable and groundbreaking execution by our team."
