Engineered Delivery System

Solid tracer delivery system achieves precise placement and more accurate production profiling

FLOWPROFILER® Oil tracers with the Engineered Delivery System (EDS) are designed to be placed within the propped fracture network. Chemically engineered to bond specifically with ProTechnics oil tracers, FLOWPROFILER® EDS beads are injected along with the proppant for each traced segment. Oil samples from first production are analyzed, profiling treatment well production and offset communication to understand:

Zonal Contribution
Overlapping Reserves
Fracture Design
Effects of Geologic Features
Depletion Effects
Well Spacing
Landing Interval
Lateral Length and Trajectory


Sample analysis begins at first oil production through 6 months+ and includes:

  • Dedicated Sample Coordinator
  • Stringent QC through adoption of EPA quality control management standards
  • Parts Per Trillion (PPT) reporting limit
  • Standard analysis completed in less than 5 days
  • Express analysis available for results in less than 24 hrs


FLOWPROFILER® Oil tracers are compatible with commonly used stimulation fluids, hydrophobic, non-radioactive, HSE friendly, and non-naturally occurring.
