BitCan has a long history of special core sampling and preservation. When evaluating cap rock material properties, maintaining a shale’s insitu condition is critical for obtaining meaningful geomechanical test results. As such, BitCan will process and preserve core samples within hours of coming out of the ground. If geo-containment and cap rock integrity is a concern connect with us and see how we can support your needs.
BitCan completed several open hole min frac tests this past winter. Our inflatable packer system combined with precise pump control and real time data analysis ensures the best possible data quality and confidence in the results.
BitCan is undertaking a new geomechanical lab testing program for an international client that is assessing the seismic characteristics of reservoir rock under different stresses and fluid saturations at reservoir temperature for a CO2 sequestration project. Our specialized triaxial testing systems are among the stiffest in the world and can test both core plugs and full size core at temperatures up to 250 degC.
Thanks to the CHOA for a great session on the application and benefits of Geomechanics for thermal recovery. BitCan is proud to be an innovator in this domain, improving well conformance, enhancing porosity and permeability, maintaining caprock integrity.
BitCan was proud to present at the SPE Thermal Well Integrity & Design Symposium in beautiful Banff Alberta.
Geomechanics are a critical consideration when designing and operating thermal wells. Our geomechanical simulation and modelling can define and evaluate the risks so you can mitigate accordingly.
Earlier this month BitCan completed a mini-frac in a deviated section of a Horizontal Well. Geocontainment and Cap Rock integrity was confirmed with bottom hole pressures reaching almost 40MPa. Job was completed safely and in less than 24hrs. Doing it right.
