Interview:  Charles Ohlsen, Completions Specialist, Whiting Petroleum

Charles Ohlsen explains what a refrac is and how Whiting is using the technology in the Bakken.  He also explains the difference between a regular frac and a refrac.

The interview then transitions into technology and Big Data in the Bakken.  How it is being used and how the industry, overall, is viewing the integration of technology.

Ohlsen also shares some barriers to entry with the refrac technology and the Bakken.  On the flip side, refracs are another arrow in an energy company’s quiver of options.

The interview concludes with a pontification of 2018 in regards to refracs and overall general Bakken activity.
