Validation of packer performance using solid polymer inflow chemical tracers

A Middle Eastern operator reached out to Tracerco to help evaluate a completion design using inflow control valves (ICVs) that were being used to help manage water production. The initial study used eleven unique solid polymer water tracers each placed in the lower completion on either side of each ICV to investigate water breakthrough from the different zones across a 3200ft section of horizontal lateral.
