Reveal Energy Services Wins E&P Special Meritorious Award for Engineering Innovation
Simple, accurate, affordable pressure-based fracture maps recognized for oilfield excellence
Reveal Energy Services announces today E&P has chosen IMAGE Frac™ 2.0 pressure-based fracture maps as one of the 14 winners of the 2018 Special Meritorious Awards for Engineering Innovation.
The simple, accurate, affordable pressure-based fracture maps are setting a new standard in the oilfield by enabling operators to make informed decisions that validate a completion design on every well with minimal operational risk and cost. The decisions increase pad commercial value, optimize effective reservoir contact, improve cluster spacing, enhance fluid distribution, and reduce nonproductive fluid loss. Each of the decisions, based on robust data analytics, is derived from one of the five services powered by IMAGE Frac technology.
The technology is field-proven in more than 2,500 hydraulic fracturing stages throughout the US. The simple process requires only a bridge plug and pressure gauge, which eliminates additional wellsite crew, downhole tools, and downtime. Now, operators can have up to 10 times the amount of fracture map data in near real time to optimize completions compared with older fracture map technology.
“We are honored that E&P has recognized IMAGE Frac technology, and we want to thank the judges and magazine for this prestigious award,” said Sudhendu Kashikar, CEO of Reveal Energy Services. “We also want to thank our customers for their enthusiastic response to our company.”
The 2018 Special Meritorious Awards for Engineering Innovation were presented at the Offshore Technology Conference today, April 30, in Houston. IMAGE Frac technology and the other award winners are featured in the May issue of E&P.
Reveal Energy Services Validates More Than 2,500 Hydraulic Fracturing Stages
Operators reducing geologic, financial risk with simple, accurate, affordable pressure-based fracture maps
The Woodlands, TX, January 23, 2018—Reveal Energy Services announced today the company has validated more than 2,500 hydraulic fracturing stages throughout the US with its simple, accurate, affordable pressure-based fracture maps. The technology has been successfully deployed in the Bakken, Midland, Delaware, Eagle Ford, STACK/SCOOP, Woodford, and Marcellus. The company is presenting the technology during the SPE Hydraulic Fracturing Technology Conference (HFTC) at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel and Convention Center January 23–24.
The fracture maps, which are created in relevant time, show an operator the fracture half-length, height, and asymmetry for validating the completion design on every well at a fraction of the cost of legacy diagnostic technologies. The maps easily quantify this fracture geometry so operators will know whether a stimulation treatment is producing the planned fracture dimensions. All that is required is a pressure gauge and a bridge plug on a monitor well; hydraulic fracturing proceeds in the treatment well without downhole tools, downtime, or additional crew.
“Instead of monitoring only 5% of their wells with older technologies that are complicated, intrusive, and expensive, operators can now monitor 100% of their wells with our streamlined pressure-based fracture maps,” said Sudhendu Kashikar, CEO of Reveal Energy Services. “Our technology guides operators to work with factory mode consistency that increases reservoir contact.”
The company’s project turnaround time continues to decrease significantly. In December, Reveal Energy Services announced the first near real-time DiverterSCANSM technology results, which allowed an operator to quickly identify a diversion design that enhances hydraulic fracturing fluid distribution. The operator is increasing fracturing efficiency by stimulating multiple perforation clusters in its STACK/SCOOP wells.
All five services are powered by IMAGE Frac™ pressure-based fracture maps that validate the completion design on every well with minimum operational risk and cost. The company is presenting the technology suite in booth 125 during HFTC.
Reveal Energy Services Delivers First Near Real-Time DiverterSCAN Technology Results
HOUSTON, December 14, 2017—Reveal Energy Services announced today the company has produced and delivered the first near real-time DiverterSCANSM technology results, which allowed an operator to identify a diversion design that enhances hydraulic fracturing fluid distribution. The operator is increasing fracturing efficiency by stimulating multiple perforation clusters.
An operator asked Reveal Energy Services to determine if the diverter was successful in stopping one cluster from taking most of the hydraulic fracturing fluid and causing one dominant fracture. The goal is to choose a diversion design that prevents this one dominant fracture by forcing the fluid into all of the clusters to stimulate the entire stage.
But, identifying the right diversion has never been quick until now. Operators wait as long as 90 days or more for production data to validate diversion effectiveness. DiverterSCAN technology, based on pressure data acquired from a simple pressure gauge attached to a wellhead, offers this information in near real time at a fraction of the cost. The operator was able to choose the right option that stimulated multiple clusters, based on the technology and the analysis by the company’s geoscientists and engineers.
“Operators are using DiverterSCAN technology to identify and choose the diversion design that yields the best results,” said Sudhendu Kashikar, CEO of Reveal Energy Services. “With this understanding, operators are increasing hydraulic fracturing efficiency on every pad in the field.”
All five services are powered by simple, accurate, affordable IMAGE Frac™ pressure-based fracture maps that can be applied on every well without interruption to hydraulic fracturing. Operators have applied the company’s fracture maps to understand more than 2,000 stages in formations throughout the US and Canada.
