in Real Time, or Long Term
Frac operations are rich with potentially valuable data. However, integrating it and using it to improve performance and squeeze more efficiency and cost out of already optimized operations can be challenging.
Understanding the opportunity and collaborating across service providers to realize the value of the data is a big, and often expensive challenge. Enthought scientists’ oilfield domain expertise, analytical software development and infrastructure skills, covering all data types, enable collaboration to efficiently identify the opportunity and develop the right software technology to utilize it.
Pump Every Stage Like the Top Performers
Completions engineers know analogue wells, stages, service companies, and often even supervisors where they had the best performance. However, exploring the 1,000’s of legacy stages, validating the data, integrated viewing, and finally getting it in front of the people running the operation (where the value is), is near impossible. This is where Enthought can help. Our sweet spot is getting value from large and complex data, removing drudgery from experts who have to deal with them.
Thousands of offset well stages provide a unique opportunity to benchmark performance by multiple factors, initially identifying similar formation types, then apply machine learning techniques to recommend completion pumping programs, and then visualize real-time data with ideal performance during operations.
Pumping schedules, including pressure ramp-up, stabilized rate values, and chemical additives schedules and timings offer a unique opportunity to squeeze costs out of completions. Identifying and visualizing best performer offsets, using these in pre-completion team meetings, and having them available with supervisors during wellsite operations provides greater insights and enables better decisions. Here, a graph shows ideal performance with a window of uncertainty determined by offset stage performance. Service company and supervisor variances can be the most significant factors.
