SPIDR® - Self Powered Intelligent Data Retriever

SPIDR ProductNo-risk, low-cost, non-intervention well testing. Other companies claim to offer surface pressure measurements for well testing, but only Halliburton can provide a sophisticated conversion of surface data to reservoir conditions, free well test planning, and offer well test analysis with a proven track record.

Reservoir Testing Analysis

  • Accurate Conversion to Downhole Pressures Via Optimized Cullender-Smith Conversion
    For gas wells, Halliburton uses a proprietary modification of the Cullender-Smith routine to convert wellhead pressures to bottom hole pressures (see actual results on page 4). For single-phase oil wells (above the bubble point at wellhead conditions), we use an incompressible-flow model and obtain accurate conversions. For multiphase wells, we have developed proprietary correlations that can handle mist, annular mist, bubble, dispersed bubble, and churn flow. Accuracy of the wellhead-to-downhole conversion varies with the quality of the input data (rates, pressures, and PVT information). But, based on test objectives and well conditions, we can optimize the test procedure to mitigate or eliminate possible sources of error. Also, we estimate the potential range of error before the test, so you can make an informed decision about the best way to test the well.
  • Unconventional DFIT&trade Testing Analysis
    The purpose of the DFIT™ test is to obtain essential reservoir properties in a relatively short period of time.  The DFIT™ is the primary empirical method that helps determine fracture design parameters (i.e. closure time, closure stress, net pressure, fluid efficiency, dominant leak-off mechanisms, etc.). These variables are necessary to define the discrete fracture network model.  If pseudo-radial flow has been achieved, the reservoir pressure and reservoir flow capacity can be determined via After-Closure analysis (ACA). Halliburton is able to provide quick look analysis during a test and perform a full analysis upon completion of a test.
