Halliburton Launches New Flowback Service

Halliburton has released CALIBR engineered flowback service, which reportedly applies advanced diagnostics and a collaborative workflow to continuously manage flowback operations to improve well productivity.

According to Halliburton, it also helps maximize water recovery and reduce damage to fractures caused during drawdowns.

Flowback is a procedure to recover fracturing fluid and remove other wellbore debris after a service is performed. Traditionally, flowback planning is designed to achieve high initial production; however there is a limited understanding of its overall effect on the well completion. Aggressive flowback strategies have been shown to negatively impact fracture connectivity over the long-term, which can result in decreased production.

The CALIBR service is performed by acquiring real-time surface data during flowback operations, analyzing this data to determine reservoir response and recommending adjustments for optimization of recovery and long-term performance.

Halliburton collects data through the SPIDR (Self Powered Intelligent Data Retriever), which produces high resolution well pressure information and provides greater insight allowing the service to be tailored across rigs.

“CALIBR is a first of a kind service that combines multiple areas of expertise, including data acquisition and real-time measurement, that will help operators improve the long-term productivity of their assets,” said Grant Roscoe, vice president of Halliburton Testing and Subsea.

Halliburton recently partnered with an operator in the Permian Basin to demonstrate the advantages of implementing an optimized flowback strategy to increase productivity. The well was drilled in what was believed to be marginal acreage, but, according to Halliburton, by using CALIBR, the operator was able to complete the well with the highest productivity index within their portfolio.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
