Comstock’s Restricted Choke Program Proving Successful

Comstock Resources’ restricted choke program is showing early success in the Eagle Ford Shale. The company’s first 19 wells tested came online at 24-hour peak production rates of 782 boe/d and averaged 584 boe/d for the first 30 days and 514 boe/d for the first 90 days. That’s a drop of less than 35% from the peak 24-hour rate to the 90 day rate.

FYI – Restricted Choke means the company isn’t producing the reservoir as quickly as it could. They are literally choking back production. This is common practice in high pressure formations. The hope is that reservoir integrity will hold at a higher level, longer. The end game they’re shooting for is higher production over the lifetime of the well.
