FRACKING EQUIPMENT REQUIRED AFTER DRILLING
WELLHEAD EQUIPMENT REQUIRED BY ZORIN ECO TECHNOLOGIES LTD AFTER DRILLING
Global Exploration Services Ltd is providing technical support to a new drilling company that is promoting its Near- Balanced Drilling methodology to the exploitation of shale-gas reservoirs. This approach is completely eco-friendly in that no fracking is required to open-up the natural fractures in the shale whilst there are also no toxic drilling fluids inserted downhole. Once the proper evaluation of a naturally fractured reservoir is done it will demonstrate that natural fractured (NF) shale reservoirs have adequate permeability to produce naturally if not damaged during the drilling process.
The solution available now is to drill & complete wells in tight Formations without the use of fracking, to avoid formation damage and address all environmental concerns;
This new approach requires the industry to rethink the evaluation of unconventional reservoirs; the consequences of their being subjected to environmental pollution resulting in serious ecological damage and the unsupportable cost of these activities. The following illustrations identify the wasteful use of resources that occur as a consequence of fracking as opposed to the more economical Near-Balanced Reservoir Drilling procedure.
Director, Dr Andrew Carr sadly died last September (2021) and consequently, basin modelling expertise will no-longer be provided.
