The Halliburton FracInsight® analysis is an unbiased, repeatable interpretation workflow that leverages the best available horizontal well data to select perforation clusters and frac stage locations. It is designed to create a more consistent fracturing operation by eliminating the fracturing of nonproductive rock, reducing inconsistent breakdown and treating pressures, and minimizing screenout or "go-to-flush" early instances.
The FracInsight® analysis provides a "Production Index" and "Frac Index" that are combined to optimize stage and cluster placement. The Production Index uses individually weighted criteria such as facies quality, effective porosity, and brittleness to quantify the differences in reservoir character. The Frac Index uses weighted criteria such as closure stress, natural fracture index, and cement bond index to highlight areas of differing mechanical properties or mechanical risk.
