Tight Gas

Low permeability reservoirs that produce dry natural gas

Economic recovery is dependent upon a well-designed fracture stimulation program.

Many tight gas reservoirs contain thick, layered systems and typically, they will produce less hydrocarbons than a higher permeability, conventional reservoir. 

BJ Services has expertise in stimulation fluids to achieve maximum production from low permeability reservoirs. Our understanding of the reservoir conditions such as permeability, reservoir fluid viscosity, pressure, depth, water sensitivity and overall well conditions allow us to select the right fluid combination to deliver the optimal fracture length and fracture conductivity needed for cost-effective, well recovery.
