Halliburton automates hydraulic fracturing with first-of-its-kind service
HOUSTON -- Halliburton Company today unveiled Prodigi AB Service, a first-of-its-kind offering that introduces automation to hydraulic fracturing. By automating the breakdown process of a fracturing treatment, Prodigi AB Service helps deliver better well performance. The service uses algorithmic controls and is supported by a Halliburton completion advisor who will tune the system to optimize the performance. Prodigi AB service helps improve overall efficiency, maximize the performance of perforation clusters and mitigate the risk of screen-out. Prodigi AB Service provides consistent design execution, better distribution of fluid across the perforated interval, and improved treatment pressures and rates. The service delivers improved precision to achieve a lower cost per boe.
Michael Segura, V.P. of the Production Enhancement business line said, “Prodigi AB Service offers a significant change in the way we are able to optimize our hydraulic fracturing operations in real-time, accelerate the learning curve to optimize well design and improve the overall consistency of our performance at the wellsite.”
Halliburton has used Prodigi AB Service in the Permian basin, with outstanding results for Primexx Energy Partners. The service reduced overall treating pressures, increased consistency of the formation breakdown process and resulted in an immediate improvement in cluster efficiency.
