New Star Energy Ltd. was one of the first oil and gas companies in Canada to successfully acid stimulate an openhole horizontal lateral in multiple stages using Lee Energy Systems' retrievable straddle packer system.
To date New Star has stimulated 37 horizontal wellbores in multiple stages, with a 100% success rate on the retrieval of the straddle packers. The geographical area in which the packers were run was in central Alberta and the primary zone of interest was the Banff formation.
The technical design allows multiple stimulations to be conducted either on jointed pipe or coil tubing in a cost effective and timely manner. The ability to conduct multiple stimulations in one run reduces overall completion costs and leaves you with a wellbore that can be re-entered for future re-stimulations if necessary.
Lee Energy Systems provides fast and efficient service. Their products have proven to be reliable, cost effective and their team is always looking at innovative solutions to improve tool performance.
Due to the great success, New Star Energy will continue to use the Lee Energy Systems ``Straddle Packer`` on future acid stimulations. It is a proven system that has worked for New Star Energy Ltd
