The Most Precise Tracer Delivery System for Profiling Hydrocarbon Production and Communication Over Time

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.

Common Applications:

  • Stage Contribution
  • A/B Testing
  • Effects of Geologic Features
  • Depletion Effects
  • Well Spacing
  • Lateral Length and Trajectory

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

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

  • Dedicated sample coordinator
  • Highest QC standards through adoption of
    EPA quality control management practices
  • Parts Per Trillion (PPT) reporting limit
  • Formation ion analysis (Na, Ca, K, Mg, Cl)
  • Standard analysis completed in <5 days
  • Express analysis results within 24 hrs

Testing shows no difference in liquid vs activated charcoal performance
due to crushing/dispersion.

The advantage of precise placement with FLOWPROFILER™ Oil EDS

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