Halliburton and Pinnacle team up on FracTracNews // October 19, 2001
The new FracTrac(SM) TW (Treatment Well) service can help operators know more precisely how their reservoir is responding to a fracture treatment, allowing for better-informed asset management decisions.
"This service will enable our customers to benefit from fracturing design decisions based on better information," said Jody Powers, president, Halliburton Energy Services.
"By having the ability to measure the fracture geometry directly in real time, we can offer enhanced fracturing processes and deliver improved production results. This technology is another facet of Halliburton's commitment to helping our customers by providing a Real Time Reservoir SolutionsT (RTRST) strategy to maximise returns from their assets."
The FracTrac TW service is provided by Pinnacle Technologies through a service provider alliance with Halliburton and is a result of an ongoing joint development agreement between the two companies.
Fracture mapping can add significant value to an overall asset management program. Understanding fracture creation through direct, real-time measurement of fracture geometry and using this information to more accurately calibrate the fracturing model canhelp optimise the treatment of the producing zone and has the potential to yield improved production.
