Real-time sleeve shift confirmation at surface.
A successful frac program requires dependable technology that reliably demonstrates downhole confirmation. Kobold has engineered Echo real-time frac sleeve confirmation system that instantly detects a mechanical event as it occurs downhole. This event creates an acoustic signature captured by the sensory-on-surface system. Kobold’s software displays a visual signature of when a sleeve is shifted by a mechanical bottomhole assembly or other means. Echo can communicate through a private and secure Wi-Fi connection, to visually chart the events at the site or from a remote location.
The Echo service provides clients with a transparent record of what occurred during the frac program. Echo saves time and second-guessing on location. We provide stage-by-stage confidence that our Sandport sleeves have been opened or closed with this real-time solution.
The Echo Display Monitor
