  • Publication number: 20210010363
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject technology relate to systems and methods for pumping multiple wellbores from a common pumping source. A fluid pump of known operating pump capacity can be selected. The pump can be fluidly connected to a common pumping source that is fluidly connected with each of a plurality of cased wellbores in a subterranean formation for providing pumped fracturing fluid to each of the wellbores. Each of the plurality of wellbores can have at least one perforation through a casing of the wellbore with a known rate range within which fracturing fluid is required to be provided to the perforation to successfully fracture the subterranean formation outside the perforation, through the perforation. Further, the wellbores can be configured so that the common pumping source provides fracturing fluid to each of the perforations within the known rate range of the respective perforation to successfully fracture the subterranean formation.

  • Publication number: 20210010361
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject technology relate to systems and methods for pumping multiple wellbores to form and stabilize fractures during a fracturing job. A fluid pump of known operating pump capacity measurable in barrels per minute is selected. The pump is fluidly connected with each of a plurality of cased wellbores in a subterranean formation for providing fracturing fluid to each of the wellbores. The plurality of wellbores each have at least one perforation through a casing of the wellbore that has a known rate range within which fracturing fluid is required to successfully fracture the subterranean formation outside the perforation through the perforation. The pump is configured to provide fracturing fluid to each of the perforations within the known rate range of the respective perforation to successfully fracture the subterranean formation outside of the perforation.
