The first inflow tracer technology application in a Middle Eastern offshore field was performed with the expertise and industry-leading technologies of Tracerco. In this study, an operator needed to collect fluid flow data in offshore oil producers in a new field development over a period of multiple years. Though production logging tools (PLTs) had been used in the past for a “snap shot” of production along the well laterals, these tools proved expensive for repetitive use and required the well to be shut-in each time a new dataset was to be collected. In its place, a project using Tracerco’s inflow tracer technology was used in order to achieve a similar quantitative understanding of the flow profile during transient production periods as well as an on-going qualitative understanding of production during steady-state production, all without the need to stop production and at a lower price point than PLT operations.
