Fracture-stimulation technology for gas-storage wells. S.R. Reeves. JPT, February 1998, 50(2), 61--67 (5 pages).

Attention is drawn to the joint programme being sponsored by the DOE (and more recently the GRI) with industry to demonstrate application of new and novel-fracture-stimulation technologies in gas-storage fields across the US. The objective of which, being to advance deliverability-enhanced technology to provide more efficient utilization of the country's gas-storage assets in response to the growing demand for a wide-spread, reliable natural gas supply. Recent applications of fracturing for gas-storage well stimulation are discussed---TSO fracturing, hydraulic fracturing with liquid CO2 and proppant, and EOB technology. Tabulated and graphical data are included. 6 refs.
