Hydraulic Fracturing and Acid Stimulation Inflow Assessment

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:

  • A comparison to be made of relative oil or gas flow from each stage.
  • Highlight areas of high, low and zero flow (somewhat similar to a production log).
  • Confirm flow through downhole tools such as frac plugs.
  • Significant cost savings in drilling...find out more detail here.
  • Cost savings and optimisation of stimulation strategies...find out more details here.

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.
