Automatic Stage and Perforation Placement through FracInsight® Service and Cuttings Analysis


Engineered completions rely on continuous petrophysical and mechanical properties data along the lateral. Due to cost constraints, however, most lateral data are limited to LWD gamma ray, survey data, and mud logging. Additionally, fewer vertical science wells are being drilled.

Within this environment, several options exist for data acquisition. The industry has examined cased-hole pulsed-neutron logging, drilling data, vibrational data while drilling, projected vertical well logs, and so on. However, this presents a challenge to establishing correct practices for interpreting and calibrating these nontraditional techniques to petrophysical properties.

To answer these challenges, Halliburton has developed a cost-effective cuttings analysis workflow combined with the FracInsight® service to provide an automated fracture-stage and cluster placement method. This webinar presents an example of this workflow performed in the Anadarko Basin in the midcontinent area of the United States.

Three reasons to watch:

  • Find out how to take best advantage of drilling cuttings within budget constraints
  • Learn how to eliminate the fracturing of nonproductive rock
  • Understand how the impact analysis based only on LWD gamma ray, survey data, and mud logging might lead to suboptimal production

Who should watch?

  • Completions managers
  • Completions engineers
  • Petrophysicists
  • Geologists
