Completion Optimization Services

Comprehensive Well Completion Design & Optimization

-Completion system selection
-Installation design
-Stimulation pumping schedule, including fluid and proppant, recommendations
-Fracture geometry simulations and reservoir simulations
-Economic analysis

Formation Evaluation: Geological, Geophysical & Petrophysical Interpretation

-Analysis of conventional open hole logs, cased hole petrophysical analysis and specialty log interpretation

Refrac Candidate Selection

Multi-tier methodology of refrac candidate selection that considers:
-Field-wide well performance using production analysis and decline
-Individual wellbore evaluation for root causes of low-performance, which includes geologic, geomechanical, pressure integrity, and operational feasibility reviews.

Frac Design & Modeling

Set up, calibrate and operate an advanced computerized fracturing simulator. Output can be used to:
-Diagnose stimulation problems
-Predict production and optimize economic output of a project
-Run reservoir simulation
-Make fluid system chemistry, proppant and execution recommendations

Core Calibrated Modeling

-Integration of RCA or other available core/XRD data to generate a continuous, calibrated geomechanical/petrophysical profile of a single well
-Installation design
-Modeling of offset wells through coupled facies attribute analysis

Geomechanical Modeling

-Determination of limits on rock strength and elastic properties from geophysical logs and other data to create a geomechanical framework that accurately reflects formation properties

Completion System Selection

-Evaluate project geomechanics, fracture modeling and economic objectives to select a completion system that best meets operator objectives

Treatment Stage Optimization

-Recommendations for injection point spacing and grouping using available logs from the lateral section in combination with seismic data and treatment modeling. In the case of limited entry completions, this will include properly designed limited entry perforations to uniformly distribute treatment fluids.

Stimulation Pressure Analysis

-Analyze treatment effectiveness and diagnose well or equipment problems using digital data acquired from actual fracture and acid stimulation jobs. Where appropriate, perform net pressure analysis to calibrate stress, permeability and containment aspects of a computerized fracture model.

Injection Test Analysis

-This test is used to determine properties such as entry friction, permeability, pore pressure, closure stress and fluid efficiency, to be used in fracture and reservoir models to improve accuracy. By pumping a known volume of fluid into a well and monitoring the pressure decline, many properties of the reservoir and created fractures may be determined via graphical manipulation.

Microseismic Interpretation & Fracture Model Calibration

-Determine fracture azimuth, length and complexity (stimulated reservoir volume). This interpretation will then be used to calibrate the computerized fracture model’s results, including fracture length and height predictions

Economic Analysis

-Determine net present value (NPV) and rate of return (ROR) in order to optimize completion and stimulation options

Retina Interpretations

-Advanced interpretation, clarification and/or understanding of Retina’s acoustic data and its relation to wellbore events. This can include using other data acquisition technologies in combination with Retina.

Torque & Drag

-Solutions to ensure a successful system installation by using modeling software and analytics to predict drilling and installation challenges associated with wellbore friction, as a result of directional deviations and dogleg severity.

Fluid Evaluation & Design

-Provide recommendations for an appropriate stimulation chemical program that will meet well objectives while minimizing damage to the reservoir. Evaluation of stimulation fluid testing, cuttings analysis, core flow studies, log analysis, and historical treatment reviews.

Proppant Selection

-Geomechanics, fracture modeling and conductivity lab testing will be evaluated to select proppants that will provide adequate conductivity and strength for a stimulation treatment while meeting the cu’s economic objectives.
