Rethinking Refracturing

"Another implication of the findings involves the future of refracturing for Bakken operators. Some operators are turning to refracturing parent wells as a protection measure for the parent, but also for the child well which needs its fractures to crack open new rock.

However, results reported by the EERC do not add up to a strong endorsement of the practice for mitigation reasons. They suggest refracturing can be a mitigating tool but only at relatively tight well spacings and even then, the net impact may not be impressive."
