Downhole Instrumentation for Fracturing Operations

Communication between Frac wells is common in high well volume operating fields. The effects of this communication can vary from environmental leaks to equipment damage. Having the ability to monitor downhole pressures allows companies to observe pressure changes in nearby wells during frac operations of adjacent wells. 

Monitoring pressure during the fracturing operation is vital to confirm each element of the process is completed as planned. During the Frac process, fluid is pumped into the target zone at a previously estimated pressure and pump rate. The fluid pressure builds to the point where the rock matrix begins to breakdown. When the rock matrix has begun to collapse, the pressure drops, pumping operations are stopped and the well pressure further declines to the point where the rock matrix begins to close up. The monitoring of the high pressure opening and closing cycles is critical in ensuring successful operations.

GEO PSI monitoring solutions offer real time data during the pressure build-up and drop-off cycles and allows the operator to make immediate decisions that can reduce the potential for environmental or surface mechanical damage whilst optimizing fracture length and fracturing efficiency by effectively monitoring bottom hole pressure. 

Our downhole monitoring solutions are designed and built to the highest standard to deliver solutions for operations in extreme environments. Combined with robust certified surface acquisition systems and the highest quality internally manufactured downhole instrumentation cable, we offer a complete frac monitoring system optimized for all needs with zero reliance on 3rd party deliverables.
