HALLIBURTON ENERGY SERVICES

Stim Star Performs Stimulation Treatment

Halliburton Energy Services' well vessel, M/V Stim Star, was used to stimulate production from one well at Shell Offshore Inc.'s Ursa deepwater development in the Gulf of Mexico, southeast of New Orleans. Bettering the previously set record, which was also a Halliburton completion, one of the wells at the Ursa tension leg platform has produced more than 50,000 bpd to become the Gulf of Mexico's highest production rate well in history. Located in 3,800 ft. of water, the well has out-produced the previous record-setting well by almost 4,000 bpd. Using Halliburton's seawater-based Delta FracPac service, Stim Star personnel performed the treatment at a rate of 38 bbl/min through two flexible hoses connected to the rig, putting 95,000 lbs. of proppant into the formation. In addition, the 8.625 in. gravelpack packer and downhole service tools were custom designed for Shell Ursa by HES' Carrollton, Texas facility.
