Flowback and Well Testing
Measure to improve field productivity
Dynamically monitor production and sustain productivity.
Advanced flowback services
AvantGuard advanced flowback services optimize your well’s performance from poststimulation operations through production. Ongoing, real-time monitoring ensures the well is being operated within a secure operating envelope (SOE)—protecting both the hydraulic fractures and your ROI during the lifetime of the well.
The SOE identifies the operational parameters that preserve the connection between hydraulic fractures and the wellbore. The operational parameters are defined from real-time pressure and production data, including solids production monitoring. This advanced characterization of well performance also defines an optimal choke management strategy for productivity in both conventional and unconventional wells.
Solids production and the liquid flow rate are measured using the Vx Spectra surface multiphase flowmeter, which accurately captures multiphase flow dynamics in any flow regime for all fluid and solid types. This continuous data is analyzed in real time by AvantGuard services to implement a predictive flowback strategy based on effective choke management.
