Simple and affordable fiber installation 

Trying to understand what’s happening downhole while fracturing is complicated. The solution shouldn’t be. At Halliburton, we simplified fiber installation by engineering out unnecessary complexity and cost for a more practical fracture monitoring solution that complements your well factory approach.

We reduced fiber installation from an average of six months down to two weeks—making fiber more manageable and easier to incorporate into your overall fracture design. By reengineering our downhole equipment to fit standard North America wellbores and hole sizes, we eliminated undesired wellbore changes, such as requiring a larger hole, which impacts drilling schedules and prolongs planning cycles.

Low-cost fiber with zero impact to operations? Yes, it does exist.

Halliburton introduces ExpressFiber™, a single-use fiber optic cable that offers direct cross-well measurements, at a price point that enables fracture monitoring on every well pad.

Practical fiber with feasible economics 

We engineered $600,000 in indirect costs out of the installation process by simplifying the complex design process—making fiber an affordable option for fracture monitoring. Eliminating the need for a larger hole allows us to reduce cost of ownership by at least $200,000, and incorporating FIBERSIGHT® Map fiber locating sensors takes away the cost and risk associated with an additional mapping run. 

Standardized process for reduced lead times 

By standardizing our equipment, we now hold inventory. This allows Halliburton to provide fiber optic fracture monitoring services to customers in merely two weeks, compared to the three-month lead-time our competitors require. 

Live reservoir insights to drive business decisions 

For fiber to truly be practical, terabytes of data must be put to practical use. Our processing and visualization transforms traditional fiber optic data into real-time actionable insights that drive business-relevant answers, such as understanding where your proppant is going and whether you’re interacting with another well.
