Reveal Energy Services presents IMAGE Frac 2.0 pressure-based fracture maps

7/24/2017

AUSTIN -- Reveal Energy Services announced today the commercialization of IMAGE Frac 2.0 pressure-based fracture maps that validate completion designs on every well with minimum operational risk and cost. The company is presenting the technology's latest version, which includes five new services, at the Unconventional Resources Technology Conference (URTeC) July 24-26 at the Austin Convention Center.

IMAGE Frac technology is a new approach to mapping hydraulic fractures, enabling operators to work with factory mode consistency that increases reservoir contact by confirming whether a stimulation treatment is producing the planned fracture dimensions. The technology—field proven in 1,200 stages in six U.S. unconventional basins—is based on precise surface pressure data recorded during hydraulic fracturing. Work proceeds normally without a downhole tool, downtime, or additional crew. 

IMAGE Frac 2.0 technology powers these five new services:

Improve treatment design
FracSCANtechnology accurately quantifies 3D fracture maps of half-length, height, and asymmetry. The maps allow operators to improve treatment design and well lateral-spacing decisions, in addition to evaluating formation interactions or frac barriers and understanding stress-shadowing effects.

Optimize effective reservoir contact
ProppantSCAN technology offers unprecedented insight into the fluid system and pump schedule for transporting proppant so operators can optimize effective reservoir contact. The identified propped fracture dimensions answer the question: "Where did the proppant go?"

Improve cluster spacing decisions
PerfSCAN technology improves cluster spacing decisions by highlighting the fluid distribution within a stage. The technology offers a clear understanding of pumping rate effects on fluid distribution.

Enhance fluid distribution
DiverterSCAN technology lets operators know if the diverter is slowing down or stopping primary fracture growth and enhancing fluid distribution within a stage. Multiple diverter drops can be evaluated in time for improved field decisions.

Reduce non-productive fluid loss
DepletionSCANtechnology identifies the depletion boundary surrounding a parent well so operators can reduce non-productive fluid loss to improve treatment effectiveness. The resulting depletion map offers information about the extent of repressuring the reservoir following a protection refrac.
