26 presentation to Repsol by MYS on 9/13/06 Annulus Pressure, Tubing Rate, & Annulus Rate 7/10/ :0010:0011:0012:0013:0014:0015:0016:0017:00 7/10/ :00 Time A (psi) C (bpm) Annulus Pressure (psi)Slurry Rate (bpm)Flowback Rate (bpm)ACC

27 presentation to Repsol by MYS on 9/13/06 Conclusions The lower the permeability, the more attractive fracturing. Fracturing horizontal wells is the most promising technique in thick, tight gas formations. The geomechanics effect on complex reservoir performance should always be considered, especially when creating multiple fractures in horizontal wells Multiple fracturing from a wellbore is a fast growing area of technology
