Title: Downhole completion system and method for completing a well
A system for completing a well having casing includes a perforating assembly and a tubing string assembly. The tubing string assembly including a pair of seal assemblies, a production screen assembly and a ported sleeve positioned between the seal assemblies and a live annulus screen assembly positioned uphole of the seal assemblies. The perforating assembly is operated to perforate the well and is then released downhole. The tubing string assembly is then repositioned such that the production screen assembly is located by the perforated interval so that when the well is hydraulically fractured with a treatment slurry that is pumped through the ported sleeve, the formation reaction to the fracturing is monitored by obtaining pressure readings in the annulus in fluid communication with the live annulus screen assembly.
