A Cost-Effective Way to Improve Perforation Efficiency
Performance of hydraulically stimulated wells often fails to meet expectations – confounding operators, completion engineers, geologists, and reservoir engineers tasked with completing wells efficiently and optimizing well production. Many tools are available for the evaluation of individual wells; however, most are impractical and/or cost prohibitive in a thin-margin environment. Using data that already exists, Drill2frac® lateral profile service provides predictive information about the well. With the unique information and analysis from its proprietary workflow, you can design your completion strategy more effectively for more productive wells.
The Drill2Frac (D2F) lateral profile is a service that provides both historical well-lookback and predictive completion guidance. With this information, you can accurately predict how stimulation fluids are distributed across the laterals. This data can further be adapted to improve your cluster efficiency and ultimately overall well performance. The built-in flexibility of our profiling service means that it can be adapted and applied to any completions program.
Better understanding of the rocks and reservoir results in better and more consistent well performance. Drill2Frac’s lateral profile, used in concert with other existing data such as gamma ray and mud logs, does just that. Drill2Frac uses the components (Torque, ROP, RPM, etc.) of the Mechanical Specific Energy Equation (MSE) to extract geomechanical information about the rock. The result is a unique rock signature that describes the rock failure mechanics as well as formation heterogeneity within individual frac stages. With this additional information, our clients are improving cluster efficiency, developing diverter strategies, optimizing stage lengths, and avoiding thief zones.
