The inVision Frac System integrates pressure sensor data and Wireline detection data into a SIMOPS focused interface to provide a digitized work flow that assists in a verification process, eliminating human error when using hydraulically actuated valves. The SIMOPS interface uses an interactive network of tablets that require multiple approvals, “Hand Shakes”, prior to actuating the hydraulic valves. The underlying logic within the inVision Frac software is flexible and can be adapted to each individual customer’s SOP’s to ensure processes and procedures are being followed.
For this case study the inVision Frac System was introduced to a crew that has no exposure to the technology. The system was rigged in on a Plug & Perf operation. Prior to activating the systems SIMOPS interface and engineered lockouts it was used to only collect data on the first 16 stages while traditional operational SOP’s were followed. After 16 stages were completed the inVision Frac System was fully integrated into the operational SOP’s, key engineered controls were activated, and HMIs distributed to all necessary personnel. After completing 14 stages with training from an IWS technician, another Data set was collected on stages 30 – 45. Furthermore, after completion of the pad and operations started on the next pad another data set of stages 1 – 16 was collected and analyzed.
Further, an analysis was done on “total non-pumping time” per stage pre-inVision and post-inVision. It is recognized that inVision can-not directly affect what happens between valve actuation. That said, it was determined that it is worth charting for analysis.
The inVision system achieved the following Key Performance Indicators:
