Halliburton unveiled Prodigi AB Service on 21 August 2018, the offering introduces automation to hydraulic fracturing. By automating the breakdown process of a fracturing treatment, the service helps deliver better well performance. Prodigi AB uses algorithmic controls and is supported by a completion advisor within the company, who will tune the system to optimize the performance.
The service helps improve overall efficiency, maximizing the performance of perforation clusters and mitigating the risk of screen-out. Prodigi AB also provides consistent design execution, better distribution of fluid across the perforated interval, and improved treatment pressures and rates. Additionally, the service delivers improved precision to achieve a lower cost per BOE.
“Prodigi AB Service offers a significant change in the way we are able to optimize our hydraulic fracturing operations in real-time, accelerate the learning curve to optimize well design, and improve the overall consistency of our performance at the wellsite,” said Michael Segura, Vice President of the Production Enhancement business line.
The company has used the service in the Permian basin with outstanding results for Primexx Energy partners.
The service reduced overall treating pressures, increased consistency of the formation breakdown process, and resulted in an immediate improvement in cluster efficiency.
“Prodigi AB Service is helping Primexx achieve our execution and production goals” said Sam Blatt, Vice President of Operations for Primexx. “The reduction in treating pressure and operational consistency is allowing us to execute treatments more efficiently and the improved cluster distribution is helping us make better wells.”
