Speaker: Steve Faurot, Spectrum Tracer Services
Topic: “Frick N Frac—the Myths Surrounding Natural Fracturing”
Injecting gamma emitting tracer material during fracture treatments allows near wellbore analysis of prop placement and utilizing chemical tracers allows a qualitative view of frac load recovery and interwell communication. This presentation is a discussion of some general observations from both styles of tracing.
