Tracerco’s smart-tracer technology measures stimulation effectiveness in unconventional oil and gas reservoirs. To reduce lift costs and yield maximum production, the company’s tracers tag native oil, gas and frac water in each of the stages in unconventional wells. Samples are taken at regular intervals and analyzed. The analysis allows accurate stage flow data comparison and determines the most effective stimulation conditions. This includes identifying where stimulation is not effective and, therefore, in future wells with similar geophysical expectations, stimulation can be deleted in those stages, ensuring resource optimization.
