Completing horizontal wells with the plug-and-perf and the ball-and-seat styles of completion has remained one of the most common methods for stimulating tight oil and gas or shale formations across North America. The use of coiled tubing, coupled with a milling bottom hole assembly, is often used to remove these plugs and restrictions after fracturing operations are completed.
