Our advanced technology allows us to study the rock mechanical data to better understand the makeup of the rock fabric. We create like rock groupings and test stress balancing. This method is scientifically proven to provide the information we need to inform your completions design.
The more we know, the more accurate your completion.
The makeup of the rock fabric is what determines how it will complete. Fracture ID uses the science and technology of Drillbit Geomechanics to measure your well’s heterogeneity. We’re able to measure mechanical rock properties along the lateral at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods, without risk of wireline or LWD and with no added rig time.
With our cutting edge technology, we evaluate the rock’s mechanical data to design a geo-informed completion, to get the frac job done effectively, saving you time, money and resources.
The top track in yellow is the client’s typical geometric completion, while the second from the top track in green is the Fracture ID recommended geo-informed completion design. The geo-informed design spaces the stages based on the Fracture ID measured stress gradient and fracture intensity, shown in the third and fourth from the top tracks, respectively. The client saw significant improvements in how this well treated and ultimately produced.
The images here reflect actual wells drilled by a client. Our client drilled the green well 15 ft. below the blue wells to investigate depletion in this area. The blue wells had been drilled and completed over a decade prior.
Fracture ID was run on the green well, we then studied the rock mechanical data. Through our analysis, we were able to clearly detect how depletion affected the mechanical makeup of the rock fabric.
