CYPHER® Seismic-to-Stimulation Service


Shale and Tight Reservoirs | Solve Complex Challenges with CYPHER

CYPHER® Seismic-to-Stimulation Service is a collaborative, integrated workflow that leverages subsurface insight to know precisely where to drill, how to drill, where to frac, and how to frac. With CYPHER Service, operators will maximize the value of their shale asset by increasing production, lowering cost per BOE, and reducing uncertainty every step of the way.

Collaboration and Data Integration

The CYPHER Service is built on collaboration and information sharing between Halliburton and the customer. It's more than a single technology; it's a holistic engineering approach that links geoscience and applied engineering to better predict and produce unconventional reserves across the lifecycle of the well.

The collaboration enables data integration across multiple platforms to build an Interactive Earth Model for full-field development. The Model is continuously calibrated and validated with data captured from the reservoir. Access to hydrocarbons is optimized through stimulation, fracturing, sweet spot identification, reservoir simulation, and well placement.


Increase production | Lower cost per BOE | Reduce uncertainty

The CYPHER Service enables operators to maximize the value of shale and tight reservoirs from initial field exploration to field development. In reservoirs where we've applied the CYPHER Service our customers have seen:

  • Reduction in cycle time by 80%
  • Higher initial production rates by 35%
  • Improved EUR by 124%
  • Lower costs per BOE by 40%

Discover the collaborative CYPHER Service where geoscience, reservoir, drilling and completion engineering enable you to better produce and predict unconventional reserves.

"Thanks to the CYPHER Service we were able to plan and execute drilling and completion of wells to maximize reservoir contact and increase productivity." - Collin Richardson, VP, Mineral Resources, Inc.

Customer Testimonials from CYPHER Roadshow

Customer Testimonial
Devon Energy Corporation Devon Energy first applied CYPHER service in the Grasslands area of the Northern Barnett Shale. After seeing improved production results and EURs with far less production variations between wells, Devon has chosen to incorporate CYPHER service in the Eagle Ford Shale as part of their technology efforts to help them better understand the reservoir and also aid in the stimulation design to help improve their fracture efficiency and effectiveness.
Craig Rasmuson, COO, Synergy Resources Corporation Synergy Resources Corporation has fully appreciated the open working relationship. Halliburton's team is very diligent and has a very professional approach. Synergy truly feels that Halliburton's team has increased the 30 and 90 day production rates with their CYPHER process through prior planning and diligent management of the drilling processes-ultimately increasing the EURs and reserves for Synergy. Synergy wholeheartedly endorses the CYPHER Service.
Collin Richardson, VP, Mineral Resources, Inc. Thanks to the Cypher Service we were able to plan and execute drilling and completion of wells to maximize reservoir contact and increase productivity. Halliburton's team guided us through the entire process, from seismic interpretation and earth modeling through planning of wellbore trajectories and geosteering to frac design and execution.
Patrick Curth – Sr. VP Exploration and Land, Laredo Petroleum Laredo Petroleum has made a significant investment in building cross-discipline databases in order to develop our acreage position in the Permian Basin more efficiently and cost effectively. Integration of such large volumes of data was achieved by collaborating with Halliburton to use their CYPHER workflow to build a 3D geological model that provides the technical foundation from which we are able to optimize our well spacing, lateral length, and hydraulic fracturing designs. By applying an integrated data approach we believe we are well along the way in developing "best practices" as it relates to field development and minimizing the inherent complexities associated with a multiple target shale play.
