RevealEnergyServices delivers 1st near real-time DiverterSCAN technology results

Tuesday, January 9, 2018

Reveal Energy Services announced the company has produced and delivered the first near real-time DiverterSCAN technology results, which allowed an operator to identify a diversion design that enhances hydraulic fracturing fluid distribution.

The operator is increasing fracturing efficiency by stimulating multiple perforation clusters.

An operator asked Reveal Energy Services to determine if the diverter was successful in stopping one cluster from taking most of the hydraulic fracturing fluid and causing one dominant fracture. The goal is to choose a diversion design that prevents this one dominant fracture by forcing the fluid into all of the clusters to stimulate the entire stage.

But, identifying the right diversion has never been quick until now. Operators wait as long as 90 days or more for production data to validate diversion effectiveness.

DiverterSCAN technology, based on pressure data acquired from a simple pressure gauge attached to a wellhead, offers this information in near real time at a fraction of the cost. The operator was able to choose the right option that stimulated multiple clusters, based on the technology and the analysis by the company's geoscientists and engineers.

'Operators are using DiverterSCAN technology to identify and choose the diversion design that yields the best results,' said Sudhendu Kashikar, CEO of Reveal Energy Services. 'With this understanding, operators can increase hydraulic fracturing efficiency on every pad in the field.'

The pressure data acquired from a monitor well, which informs DiverterSCAN technology, are the foundation of the company's four other services:

-FracSCAN technology accurately quantifies 3D fracture maps of half-length, height, and asymmetry
-DepletionSCAN technology identifies the depletion boundary surrounding a parent well
-PerfSCAN technology enables an understanding of pumping rate effects on fluid distribution
-ProppantSCAN technology offers insight into the fluid system and pumping schedule.

All five services are powered by simple, accurate, affordable IMAGE Frac pressure-based fracture maps that can be applied on every well without interruption to hydraulic fracturing. Operators have applied the company's fracture maps to understand more than 2,000 stages in formations throughout the US and Canada.
