Helps improve well performance by reducing completion damage and optimizing production.
Flowback programs on multi-stage horizontal wells in unconventional reservoirs are often completed without a clear understanding of how the flowback could affect the long-term performance of the well. Aggressive flowback strategies have been shown to damage fracture conductivity and reduce well performance. With CALIBR service you can manage flowback operations and improve well productivity.
CALIBR flowback service is executed following these three main steps:
We use our SPIDR® gauge to acquire high resolution, high frequency data. With SPIDR, we not only provide bottomhole pressures, but also identify and mitigate possible damage arising from common flowback operational practices. Additionally, our industry best flowback equipment and team of experts, which includes field personnel and reservoir engineers, provide you with a comprehensive flowback solution.
An analysis of well performance guides continuous choke management to avoid completion damage. Real-time management is essential to maintaining the effectiveness of the completion and maximizing the long term well performance. Each job is tailored based on completion design, field knowledge, productivity, and prior services performed.
The CALIBR flowback service is an iterative process that optimizes well results by continuously measuring, analyzing and adjusting the flowback in order to improve completion effectiveness and increase well productivity. By implementing the CALIBR service, we are able to work with you to maximize the economic value of your wells and improve your cost per BOE.
This paper focuses on the specific type of damage that can be created by aggressive flowback practices and how this damage can be mitigated by effectively monitoring and controlling initial rates and pressures.
