Measure 6: Once the boring gets about 500 pess above the shale formation. a downhole boring motor with sophisticated mensurating instruments begins the angle boring making a new horizontal way into the shale formation. Measure 6: Once the boring gets about 500 pess above the shale formation. a downhole boring motor with sophisticated mensurating instruments begins the angle boring making a new horizontal way into the shale formation. Measure 4: The cement and shell are so pressure tested to guarantee hydrocarbons and other fluids don’t seep out. Measure 4: The cement and shell are so pressure tested to guarantee hydrocarbons and other fluids don’t seep out.

Measure 3: Cement is so poured into this tubing throughout. displacing any staying fluids and procuring the shell in topographic point. Measure 3: Cement is so poured into this tubing throughout. displacing any staying fluids and procuring the shell in topographic point. Measure 2: The drill pipe and spot are removed and a steel “surface casing” tubing is inserted into the well which stabilizes the well sides. making a barrier.

Measure 2: The drill pipe and spot are removed and a steel “surface casing” tubing is inserted into the well which stabilizes the well sides. making a barrier. Measure 1: Vertical good begins to be drilled with a drill pipe and bore spot past the land H2O degree a few thousand pess down. Step 1: Vertical good begins to be drilled with a drill pipe and bore spot past the land H2O degree a few thousand pess down. Stairss In The Fracking Procedure

Measure 5: Both the drill pipe and bore spot are put back into the well and the boring continues. Another bed of casing and cement is added for a 2nd lasting behaviour. The whole perpendicular boring procedure costs about $ 663. 000 Measure 5: Both the drill pipe and bore spot are put back into the well and the boring continues. Another bed of casing and cement is added for a 2nd lasting behaviour. The whole perpendicular boring procedure costs about $ 663. 000

Measure 10: span stoppers are inserted behind the breaks and the perforating tool continues to travel backwards in the well whiles stoppers are inserted behind each puncture in the shale. The full fracturing procedure takes about $ 2. 5 million. Step 10: span stoppers are inserted behind the breaks and the perforating tool continues to travel backwards in the well whiles stoppers are inserted behind each puncture in the shale. The full fracturing procedure takes about $ 2. 5 million. Step 11: Plugs are so removed one time all of the horizontal well has been punctured and the gas flows to the top of the well.

Measure 11: Plugs are so removed one time all of the horizontal well has been punctured and the gas flows to the top of the well. Although we weren’t able to happen exact figures for each of the stairss. we did happen that the full procedure from get downing to stop costs about $ 7 million dollars. Although we weren’t able to happen exact figures for each of the stairss. we did happen that the full procedure from get downing to stop costs about $ 7 million dollars. Measure 7: Once the coveted horizontal way is at the coveted length. the drill pipe and spot are removed and the shell and cement beds continue to the terminal of the well. The whole horizontal boring procedure costs about $ 1. 2 million.

Measure 7: Once the coveted horizontal way is at the coveted length. the drill pipe and spot are removed and the shell and cement beds continue to the terminal of the well. The whole horizontal boring procedure costs about $ 1. 2 million. Step 9: The tool is removed and fracturing fluid enters the well. The sand creates breaks in the shale and the fluid leaves with the sand remains in the breaks leting the gas to flux into the well.

Measure 9: The tool is removed and fracturing fluid enters the well. The sand creates breaks in the shale and the fluid leaves with the sand remains in the breaks leting the gas to flux into the well. Step 8: A punching tool is inserted making holes in the shale bed leting hydrocarbons to the well watercourse.
