Fracture Advanced Mapping Technologies

4DPRMTechnologies Team  presents the Fracture Advanced Mapping Technologies approach for joint studies both pre-existing or natural fractures and the artificial fractures.

Fracture Advanced Mapping Technologies use the both methods as the CSPD method for natural fractures and the MicroSeismicPRMP method for artificial fractures.
The two our examples of such integrated FAMT approach are presented here:

FAMT approach is the basis of the two technologies designed to optimize costs in the development of hydrocarbon fields :

  • SHD ( Smart Horizontal Drilling ) - technology of choice the optimal  trajectory of horizontal drilling in order to maximize production rate, at the design stage of field development, followed by mapping areas technogenic fractures formed in the process of geological and engineering operations (hydraulic fracturing, waterflooding etc.)
  • 4DPRM (4D Permanent Reservoir Monitoring ) - integrated technology of Permanent Reservoir Monitoring  based on the high-density seismic acquisition system  and using the methods FracturePRM and   MicroSeismicPRM.
