Description

Resman intelligent tracer technology consists of engineered polymers that look similar to plastic and are designed to release a unique chemical fingerprint when contacted by the target fluid (oil or water). A wide selection of intelligent tracers is available to integrate into the completion. These tracers are placed at strategic locations across the reservoir with a specifically designed carrier, i-Trace.

The inner-ventilated (IV) i-Trace enables the operator to obtain surveillance information from anywhere across the completion.

The outer-ventilated (OV) i-Trace enables the operator to use his or her own base pipe and obtain surveillance information from anywhere across the reservoir. 

 

Features

IV i-Trace

  • Designed per liner spec for the planned completion
  • Available in standard service material or high alloys, as required according to completion design
  • Run as part of the completion with pre-installed water and/or oil-tracer systems
  • Simple and robust design

 

OV i-Trace

  • Can be mounted on customer-supplied base pipe
  • Available in standard service material or high alloys, as required according to completion design
  • Range up to three joints can be used with high tracer volume capacity
  • Run as part of the completion with pre-installed water and/or oil-tracer systems
     

Benefits

  • Cost-effective tracer deployment and short lead times
  • Suitable for multiple applications and surveillance purposes
  • Offers long-term monitoring
  • Eliminates the need for intervention
  • Reliable carrier system with low risk
 

Applications

  • Identify mud-cake cleanup efficiency
  • Identify production profile as the well evolves (up to 5-year longevity)
  • Identify water breakthrough
  • Optimize waterflood strategy
  • Optimize stimulation efficiency
