Working with its customers Tracerco has developed
a technology to provide fluid inflow information after
stimulation that has proven to be very beneficial,
especially in extended reach horizontal wells that are
challenging for conventional well logging.
Interpretation of the data in conjunction with overall well production information enables:
Following multi-stage hydraulic fracturing or acid
stimulation of a well, it is valuable to gain a better
understanding of the overall production contribution
from each treatment stage. Historically, there has not
been any technology to verify positional fluid inflow other
than the use of intrusive production logging tools.
In many extended reach wells, the use of a production
logging technique has been relatively inaccurate and
can be expensive.
A Tracerco fracture flow study enables better understanding of contribution from each stimulated interval of oil in-flow behaviour following completion of an unconventional well.
An offshore sub-sea well was to be stimulated using hydrochloric acid as part of the completion process.
