COMPOSITIONS FOR DUST CONTROL AND METHODS MAKING AND USING SAME

NexTier Completion Soluti...

1. A treated dust-containing material composition comprising:a dust-containing material, and
an effective amount of an oil based dust suppression composition comprising:
(a) at least one sugar alcohol ester, and
(b) at least one glyceride,
wherein the oil based dust suppression composition reduces dust of the dust-containing material from about 30% to about 100%,
wherein the oil based dust suppression composition is free or substantially free of water or an aqueous solution, and
wherein the at least one sugar alcohol ester improves flowability and reduces screen out propensity of the treated dust-containing material.

WELL COMPLETION SYSTEM AND METHOD

NEXTIER COMPLETION SOLUTI...

1. A well completion method, the method comprising:grouping mechanical specific energy (MSE) values of a geological formation traversed by a borehole so as to form a plurality of groups based on predetermined ranges of MSE values;
determining a well completion scenario based on the location of facies of the geological formation traversed by a borehole, wherein the well completion scenario comprises positioning at least one perforation cluster within the geological formation at a location along the borehole having the same or substantially similar facies as defined by having the same or similar MSE values as determined by a mapping of the MSE values of the geological formation traversed by the borehole using the grouping of MSE values; and
perforating at least a portion of a well based on the well completion scenario.
