Fracture and completion evaluation

Optimal fracture insight and completion efficiency

Operators can maximize fracturing and completion efficiency by developing an optimal approach for each well. Defining the best well, completion and perforation spacing is important to economically recover as much of the production potential as possible, and maximize returns.

Accurate and reliable fracture evaluation is crucial to achieve an ideal fracture design as well as completion efficiency, production targets and even overall field development planning.

Proppant-delivered fracture evaluation services, supported by data-driven analysis techniques from CARBO, empower operators to identify the right fracture and completion design—maximizing production, recovery and the economic success of every play.

Define fractures, improve modeling

CARBONRT inert racer technology

The ability to precisely measure near-wellbore propped fracture height and width helps operators improve fracture geometry models. CARBO has developed a range of proppant-delivered fracture evaluation services to enable these measurements. Operators can clarify fracture placement and proppant uptake, quantify the quality of near-wellbore conductivity and verify diversion operations. Microseismic technology can only locate the fractures, whereas proppant-delivered fracture technology can tell operators where they actually have a propped fracture.

Inert tracer technology enables the high-definition evaluation of fractures in either ceramic or sand completed wells. Operators can accurately assess perforation cluster efficiency and connectivity to maximize estimated ultimate recovery (EUR). As the tracer is integral to the proppant matrix, it cannot be dissolved or washed away and is permanently identifiable. This means post-fracture logging is possible months, or even years later. It also avoids QHSE implications, increased risks and costs associated with radioactive tracers.
