Real-time Data Monitoring

The Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) requires companies to monitor adjacent wells when fracturing. Our offset well monitoring solutions allow you to capture real-time data for wells adjacent to a well undergoing fracture treatments, DFITS or perforation inflow.

We use Calscan surface gauges and MRL realtime units to record and stream, so you can monitor your wells second-by-second. All readings are available in a single, convenient location - our Realtime Portal - which can be access via computer, smartphone or tablet, so you have the data you need when and where you need it.

Diagnostic Fracture Injection Test (DFIT)

Our DFIT solutions offer high resolution, high frequency data for high pressure fluid frac jobs. Data is transmitted in real-time (or can be stored for future use) with analysis reports provided.

Production Services

Fluid Levels:

Fluid levels in producing wells can be determined using acoustics. Acoustical tests can be done on oil or gas wells, whether pumping or flowing, in casing or tubing.

An accurate fluid level can be used to determine:

  • The liquid level in an annulus
  • Operating changes
  • Bottom-hole pressure

Dynamometer Testing and Analysis:

Dynamometer tests help increase efficiencies and production, lower operating costs, and mitigate the risk of equipment failure. Our technicians conduct, review and analyze tests, allowing them to make recommendations on how you can optimize your production. We offer the following forms of tests:

  • Standing & travelling valve checks
  • Counter balance checks
  • Pump fillage with pump card
  • Annular fluid shots
  • Testing of tubing/casing pressures

Kinley Cutters

Kinley Cutter with Roller Attachment

The Kinley "Sandline Cutter" cuts stuck lines or cables in almost any size of pipe (from coiled tubing to casing) and any line size (from slicklines and e-lines to 1-1/8" O.D. anchor lines).

This technology has successfully been used in cuts as deep as 20,000 feet (more than 6,000 meters) in situations involving a range of line types, including some small coiled tubing under certain conditions. An Electronic Time Delay Cable Cutter is also available for use in deviated wells or in wells where mud, sand, kinks and other obstructions can be obstacles.

How does it work? A Bonnetts operator will attach the Kinley Cutter to your line before sending a drop weight down after it. This sets off the propellant charge, forcing the knife to cut the line. Both the cutter and drop weight have a fishneck for easy recovery.

This solution allows you to save the line in a single piece, at a cost that is typically offset by the value of the saved line. It also saves you time when compared to alternative solutions, with each job taking only a couple of hours.

Echometer Digital Well Analyzer

The Well Analyzer is an integrated artificial lift data acquisition and diagnostic system that allows an operator to maximize oil and gas production and minimize operating expense. Well productivity, reservoir pressure, overall efficiency, equipment loading and well performance are derived from the combination of measurements of surface pressure, acoustic liquid level, dynamometer, power and pressure transient response. This portable system is based on a precision analog to digital converter controlled by a notebook computer with Windows-based application. The Well Analyzer acquires, stores, processes, displays and manages the data at the well site to give an immediate analysis of the well’s operating condition.

Acoustic Liquid Level Tests

The Echometer Well Analyzer is used in conjunction with a gas gun/microphone assembly to determine the liquid level depth in a well. Normally, the liquid level depth is determined in the casing annulus, but also, the liquid level depth can be measured inside tubing in gas wells. An acoustic pulse is generated at the surface of the well. The acoustic pulse travels through the gas and is reflected by changes in area including tubing collars and the liquid level. The software automatically processes this acoustic data to determine liquid level depth. Concurrent with the acoustic liquid level depth measurement, an initial and twominute build-up casing pressure tests are performed. The casing pressure build-up measurement allows calculation of the casing annulus gas flow rate and the gradient of the gaseous liquid column if free gas is bubbling up through the liquid. Software calculates the producing bottomhole pressure, maximum production rates, pump intake pressure, casing annulus gas flow rate and other parameters. This single-shot acoustic liquid level depth test is displayed as shown so the operator can visualize and understand the performance of the well.

Dynamometer Tests

A dynamometer analysis allows an operator to determine the loadings and performance of a beam pump system. Rod loadings, beam loadings, gear box loadings, pump performance and downhole gas separator performance can be determined. An easy-to-install compact polished rod transducer is attached to the polished rod below the carrier bar in a few seconds. The polished rod transducer offers safe and easy acquisition of load and position data with sufficient accuracy for most analysis. A quantitative horseshoe load cell that is installed between the carrier bar and the polished rod clamp allows the acquisition of load with precise accuracy. An accelerometer within the transducers provides a reliable technique to determine polished rod position. With both dynamometers, a surface dynamometer card and a downhole pump card are calculated and displayed. Traveling valve and standing valve tests can be performed. When using a horseshoe transducer, a permissible load diagram and torque analysis are available. A motor current sensor allows acquisition of motor current data with the dynamometer data for balancing and motor size and motor performance analysis.

Hawk 9000 Data Logger

The hawk 9000 isa reliable low power data logger with a suite of integrated sensors used to measure pressure, temperature and flow in hazardous locations.

Since the inception of the Hawk 2000, it has logged millions of hours in a variety of harsh testing environments such as the Canadian arctic and the world's deserts. These challenging conditions have provided the test bench for improving reliability and the continuous development of new and improved sensors and software capabilities. As a result, today this precision instrument can be configured to provide a multitiude of reliable measurement solutions.

Hawk 9000 Solutions

Surface Build Up Monitoring

By monitoring dry gas well build ups with a Hawk and using Cullender-Smith, the bottom hole pressure can be calculated. This is a much more cost effective alternative than using downhole guages.

DFIT and Offset Well Monitoring

The Hawk can monitor all of its sensors at the same time, including gas flow, at a one second sample rate for rapidly changing data. On a Diagnostic Fracture Injection Test (DFIT), quality of data is very important as a derivative analysis will be used. The Hawks ultra stable pressure sensors will provide the superior data your reservoir engineers will need.

Hydrostatic and Mechanically Integrated Testing (MIT)

The Hawk's stable pressure sensors and PDF reporting for pipeline, vessels and packer isolation tests bring accuracy and accountability to the hydrostatic pressure testing process. Optimized for portable or truck mounted applications the Hawk will simplify your testing procedures.

Precision CO2/N2/Air Flow Measurement

The volumes measured off trucks are notoriously inaccurate. By using a Hawk configured for gas turbine, highly accurate pump rates can be recorded with turndown ratios of 40:1

Drop Spool SRO for Optimizing Bottom Hole Tests

Measuring the pressure at surface while using downhole guages you can determine exactly when an oil well has finished building up. The Hawk's intrinsically safe design requires no explosion proof connections to meet electrical codes, simplifying installations.
