FracCADE is a software solution developed by Schlumberger, the world's leading provider of technology and services for the oil and gas industry. FracCADE is designed to help engineers and operators plan, execute, monitor, and evaluate hydraulic fracturing operations in various well types and environments.
Hydraulic fracturing is a technique that involves pumping fluids and proppants into a wellbore to create and prop open fractures in the rock formation. This enhances the flow of oil and gas from the reservoir to the surface. Hydraulic fracturing can increase the productivity and recovery of hydrocarbons, but it also poses technical challenges and environmental risks.
FracCADE aims to address these challenges and risks by offering a comprehensive suite of modules that cover different aspects of hydraulic fracturing, such as:
Candidate identification and screening
Fracture geometry modeling and optimization
Fluid and proppant selection and scheduling
Real-time data acquisition and analysis
Pressure matching and fracture diagnostics
Production forecasting and economic evaluation
Post-treatment analysis and interpretation
FracCADE can handle complex scenarios such as multiple fractures, layered formations, horizontal wells, acid fracturing, screenouts, slurry dehydration, and more. FracCADE can also integrate with other Schlumberger software solutions, such as Petrel, INTERSECT, Kinetix, StimMAP, Mangrove, etc.
