Well Analyst™ – Case Study 1

CASE STUDY 1

HYDRAULIC FRACTURE MONITORING


Client

North American Operator - Canada


Technology

Well Analyst™ Downhole Event Monitor


Challenge

Monitor Frac Diversion


Outcome

During a Well Analyst™ deployment, the operator was able to identify a missed ball launch at surface that would have resulted in a sleeve not shifting, and a frac not being diverted as required. They were able to reset the frac equipment and complete a successful frac after the fault had been flagged by the Well Analyst.


Solution

The operator estimated that the Well Analyst™ information saved them US$300,000 in failed frac costs.

Four distinct noise signals can be seen in the screenshot above which
were identified through the Well Analyst™ monitor’s downhole noise
filtering and interpretation technology.
