Post Frac Evaluation using Well Test Analysis
We provide services in well test design, operations and interpretation for fractured wells and reservoirs worldwide. We help you to obtain the best quality data and quickly interpret fracture diagnostics (breakdown, DFIT, ACA, minifrac) and post main frac shut-ins. We can also re-analyze old data or challenge previous interpretations.
Post Frac Evaluation
Why testing frac wells?
Interpret minifrac for a better frac design,
Understand fracture length, conductivity and possible damage,
Assess fracturing operations and check actual versus designed fracture.
Interpret ACA/minifrac and assist frac engineer,
Design or review data acquisition strategy to ensure best quality data for well test analysis,
Post evaluation of frac treatment, resulting in frac length, conductivity, frac damage, reservoir permeability, etc…
Monitor frac length, conductivity and damage over time.

Why testing wells ?
- Confirmation of discovery and productivity
- Clean-up and rate measurement
- Large volume fluid sample
- Well and reservoir performance
- (skin, KH, Pi, heterogeneity, boundaries)
- Reservoir connectivity & proven volume
- Flow behaviour around wellbore
- Large scale of investigation (100-1000s ft)
Well testing in exploration and appraisal could point out to reservoir compartmentalization problem. Knowing this type of problem would prevent a field development train-wreck and huge financial losses.
- Use of opportunistic shut-ins
- Track permeability, skin, reservoir pressure
- Monitor performance over time
- Understand performance deviation
- Assess well intervention
- Quality control rate measurement
No other alternative to:
obtain large fluid sample
evaluate permeability over large distances (~100s-1000s feet),
assess well damage (skin)
investigate connectivity over large volume
Why using our services?
Extensive experience from exploration to production in all types of wells and reservoirs worldwide, in particular North Sea (UK and Norwegian sectors), GoM, Brasil, Azerbaijan, Algeria, Angola, Canada, Egypt, Oman, Jordan, Indonesia, etc…
We have expertise in deconvolution.
Deconvolution is a great asset for your team. It helps to improve the understanding of the pressure data, refine initial pressure and add reservoir insights. While deconvolution is not new, it is often misused in the industry.
We are also dedicated to coaching you with deconvolution.
We can act as your team well test expert, provide a 2nd review or simply reduce your expert’s workload.
We can review data from your shut-in or active wells with or without downhole gauges.
With costly and rare shut-in pressure data, don’t compromise on its interpretation.
We guarantee to provide more value out of your data. Let’s try a quick review of your existing design or interpretation and we’ll send you our comments.
You already have a design or interpretation study but are not entirely satisfied or simply want to check if more value can be obtained at minimum cost?

We support employees from national companies, independents, majors and more “generalist” service companies.
