From February to April, 2014, Tacrom Services performed hydraulic fracturing treatments for three different customers in the Republic of Georgia.

In addition to conventional treatments, we employed new technology as well.

  • Multistage fracturing, with up to seven stages per well
  • Coiled tubing milling of balls and seats after the treatment
  • Resin coated sand and ceramic proppant was placed to eliminate flowback problems.
  • Delayed crosslinkers were used to reduce pumping friction, which allowed the treatments to be performed with standard production tubing.

In some cases the rock properties and well construction created a challenge, but by redesigning the treatments and adapting to the well conditions the treatments were successful.

Cost savings were possible by having materials shipped directly to the final customer, and utilizing customer facilities whenever possible.
