The running rate of frac activity in the Permian has shifted from 15 to 20 wells per week in May and June, to 40 to 45 wells per week in the last three weeks. Last week, week 29, activity was particularly strong with 63 started frac operations based on our preliminary estimates. This level of activity has not been seen in the Permian since early April this year.
Standoff enhanced Stoneley measurements are applied for continuous permeability using LWD azimuthal acoustic data.
A better understanding of earth stresses resulted in a dramatic reduction in wellbore instability-related drilling events and NPT for the operator.
