Flowback and Monitoring

Managing reservoir drawdown efficiently

Maximize the unloading rate for cleanup and minimize the risk of formation damage using a model to predict drawdown pressures based on laboratory-observed rock behavior.

Analyzing flowback fluids

Understand how the chemistry of the fracturing fluid changes over the flowback period and with its contact with the simulated reservoir. Continuous monitoring of parameters like the total dissolved solids (TDS), pH, T, total hardness, and total alkalinity may provide insight about the rock-fluid interaction.

Integrating data for flowback analysis

Damage mechanisms such as rock failure and chemical scaling formation are recognized issues in shale reservoirs. Flowback analysis presents a unique opportunity for capturing the early onset and development of these damage mechanisms.
