Enhance reservoir understanding, reduce costs

SPIDRlive is an unconventional well testing and fracture interaction monitoring technology that acquires real-time well data without the need for intervention. It helps reduce costs and improve fracture understanding for greater recovery. The SPIDRlive retriever combines quartz-based hardware and proprietary modeling software to capture high-resolution, high-accuracy and high-frequency data from the wellhead without running downhole equipment. 

Remotely view live well test data from your mobile device

SPIDRlive builds on all the same quartz performance specifications of the classic SPIDR and adds the ability to remotely view a livestream from your mobile device data through the cloud to a secure web-based dashboard. It enables you to see what’s happening at your wellsite as it happens. SPIDRlive is ideally suited for frac interaction monitoring applications.
