CARBONRT GP inert tracer technology for gravel pack applications has been developed to enable a safe, accurate and cost-effective evaluation of gravel pack completed wells. The technology is used in cased hole and open hole completions in both vertical and horizontal wells to help you increase production and recovery. The tracer is permanently detectable, so evaluations can be performed and repeated at any time during the life of the well to ensure sufficient pack quality.
Confirm productive zone coverage
Our tracer technology is used to detect the top of the gravel pack to confirm that the entire productive zone has been covered successfully in the near-wellbore region.
Assure gravel pack quality
CARBONRT GP technology allows you to identify the presence of any channels or voids in the pack by directly measuring the location of the proppant in the near-wellbore region during completion operations.
Identify fines and sand migration
The technology is used to identify if sand and fines have migrated from the formation into the gravel pack after months or even years of well production. The permanently detectable tracer enables you to perform log evaluations throughout the life of the well to investigate and solve any production issues.
Uniform tracer distribution for accurate measurements
CARBONRT GP technology is a ceramic proppant that is manufactured with a proprietary tracer uniformly distributed throughout each proppant grain. The tracer is integral to the proppant matrix so it cannot be dissolved or washed away.
High quality evaluation anytime with standard tools
Our unique technology features an inert, permanently traceable material that has a high neutron capture cross-section. Analysis of the logs result in a direct measurement of where proppant is located, rather than an interpretation.
Unique evaluation technique and support services
CARBO has developed a proprietary method for evaluating gravel pack completions using our unique, field-proven tracer technology. The technique enables the direct measurement of the top of gravel and pack quality. Our team will also provide full support with the integration of CARBONRT GP technology into your gravel pack
