New hydraulic fracturing system

Paul Boughton

Tendeka has announced the launch of FracRight, a complete heel-to-toe hydraulic fracturing system. Integrated with the company’s real-time DTS monitoring and Quest software suite, the system enables the collection and analysis of stimulation data in unconventional reservoirs.

The FracRight system is a fully integrated fracking sleeve solution for selective multi-zone stimulation in open hole or cased hole applications. It enables the installation of multiple sleeves for each stage to be fractured, optimising stimulation efficiency and production. The sleeves are shifted open by pumping a ball from surface allowing for subsequent stimulation of the selected stage either from a single sleeve or a cluster of sleeves.

It can be integrated with Tendekas real-time distributed fibre optic stimulation monitoring service to provide more effective evaluation and management of multi-zone completions. The system gathers the information required to measure, model and optimise the stimulation treatment and subsequent flow back and production profile.

Ken Miller, Tendeka’s vice president of North and South America, said: “Our experience and track record in the US fracking market has led to the development of the FracRight stimulation monitoring system, which will enhance fracture performance and efficiency. Capturing the real-time data from the system allows our clients to verify isolation integrity, analyse the individual characteristics of each production interval and make critical adjustments in the fracturing operation. The result being that completion operations are optimised, while minimising costs and mitigating risk.”
