WHAT’S NEW FOR ONSHORE & OFFSHORE: UPSTREAM, MIDSTREAM, DOWNSTREAM OPERATIONS
Upstream & Downstream Operations
VOL 64; NO. 3 FEBRUARY 2018
Dissolvable/disintegrating frac balls, plugs
Longer laterals, accelerated completion times, and simplified
completion operations are aided and enhanced with TervAlloy
frac balls and plugs.
They have been employed in 50,000+ stages in remote locations to eliminate the need for coiled tubing drill-outs, snubber
rigs, and workover rigs, it’s declared. The TervAlloy balls and
plugs also potentially eliminate the need for intermediate casing
and liner to reduce water usage and simplify operations.

Fixed gas transmitter replacement unveiled
General Monitors S5000 fixed gas transmitter is the new
replacement for S4000 models — to ruggedly keep plant and
personnel safe in demanding environments.
The new designs can be operated by magnet interface, single
touch button on the display, or via Bluetooth-enabled smartphone
at up to 23m away. Capability to have two sensor inputs in one
transmitter economically doubles S5000 coverage.

Equipment, Products, Systems, Technologies & Services for
LWD borehole imager, caliper, drilling dynamics monitor available
FracView Tool/Service is newly commercialized to help operators acquire high-resolution
data while drilling with oil-based, synthetic-based, or water-based mud.
This LWD borehole imager/caliper/drilling dynamics monitor provides a low-cost
solution to obtain high-quality borehole images and precise caliper data — even as the trend
toward longer unconventional laterals and increased use of OBM/SBM continues, according to
Designed to deliver valuable data inputs for improved, optimized, engineered completions planning
— addition of the single tool can provide a ‘thin’ but valuable data set. This allows for cluster, stage, and overall
completion design to be customized and optimized for each lateral. Additional FracView specifics are yours free.
