Impact

Fracture ID is recognized as an industry leader in the rapidly advancing field of Drillbit Geomechanics™

Completion Design Optimization:

  • Placement of stage boundaries and perforations based on stress variance

High Resolution Reservoir Characterization:

  • Input to geological, petrophysical, and mechanical earth models

Fracture Identification and Thin-Bed Analysis:

  • High resolution analysis compares with image log resolution

Field Development Planning:

  • Understanding lateral heterogeneity improves depletion models, reservoir models, and well spacing

Drilling Dysfunction Analysis:

  • Using the same data collected for DrillBit Geomechanics™, NOV can optimize drilling parameters to reduce drilling days and dysfunction
