For over nearly two decades Pinnacle’s Microdeformation-based Reservoir Monitoring Service has provided operators with the subsurface insight they need to both mitigate operational risk and optimize operations. With extreme high sensitivity and temporal resolution of ground motion, a Microdeformation monitoring system is ideally suited to identify when, where, how and why volumetric change is occurring within a reservoir.
Microdeformation has been employed by producers worldwide to help provide insight to a broad range of issues, including:
Providing early warning of impending casing failure or fluid conformance issues
Detecting and characterizing fracture initiation and behavior
Understand how to efficiently drain a reservoir during secondary or tertiary recovery
Planning and optimizing an infill drilling program
Mapping plume injection and migration of steam, CO2, water and waste injection programs
TiltTalk for Clients™ tiltmeter software is Pinnacle communication program to allow clients who have purchased Pinnacle tiltmeters to set up tiltmeters for data collection and upload data to a computer.
Pinnacle’s reservoir monitoring service employs sensitive deformation diagnostics to detect and interpret subsurface volumetric activity to enhance production optimization and risk mitigation activities.
