What We Do

ShearFRAC® provides the missing link between geology and reservoir engineering through unique completion measurements. Our live streaming technology platform, FracBRAIN®, uses pumping pressure data, rate, proppant concentration, and frac chemicals, among other channels from your wells, to count the dominant tensile breaks and the smaller, more complex fracture measurements that are activated in the rock during the stimulation. FracBRAIN® displays second-by-second fracture measurements and active fracture guidance to visualize rock response and optimize fracture surface area during each completion stage. Results from FracBRAIN® are also used post stimulation in ResBRAIN® to improve modeling assumptions and provide further insights to well performance and asset development.

  • Our Geoscience experts are skilled at drilling and log interpretation and provide insights into rock failure based on depositional environment and geomechanical stresses.
  • Our Completion engineers are skilled at hydraulic fracture design and operations. They work alongside your engineering and operations team, using live streamed results from FracBRAIN®, to make every stage the best it can be, by matching the application of rate and proppant to the targeted rock.
  • Our Reservoir engineers are experts in reservoir simulation and production forecasting and use the results from FracBRAIN® to reduce assumptions in reservoir models which allows us to run various sensitives on fracture geometry, well spacing, and economics with more confidence.
  • Live Streaming results are provided second-by-second anywhere there is an internet connection.
  • No processing time is needed.
  • We work with your team to interpret these results and make desired changes to completion design for the current stage and future stages.

If you can measure it, you can impact it.

FracBRAIN® provides a recommended vector to the magnitudes of proppant and fluid used during stimulation. The technology improves stage productivity, resulting in higher well IP and EUR, which we analyze using ResBRAIN®, a ShearFRAC® reservoir engineering tool. Additional ancillary proven benefits seen on ShearFRAC® projects include:

  • Reduced water use.
  • Reduced stage time.
  • Reduced overall completion costs.
  • Mitigation of screen outs and FDIs.

Client Testimonials

Real-Time Rate Changes to Increase Fracture Counts, Increase Fracture Intensity, Reduce Completions Costs, and Increase Well Productivity by Unlocking the Full Potential of Every Stage.

How We Do It

Our patented technology FracBRAIN® measures breaks in the rock and delivers live data to the client operator allowing for real time water rate and proppant concentration adjustments to increase total fracture counts, thereby exposing greater productive rock surface area.

FracBRAIN® listens to the rocks being shattered during each completion stage. The character of the rock being fractured drives the completion design, so stage-by-stage adjustments are frequently beneficial to match hydraulic stress with rock stress. Rock characteristics can vary all along a wellbore and second-by-second throughout a stage. Wells completed using ShearFRAC®, compared with non-ShearFRAC® wells on the same or an adjacent pad, show improved well productivity because of this real time rock-water-proppant interaction. Our objective is to maximize the productivity of every stage.

ShearFRAC® provides unconventional oil & gas operators worldwide with trusted industry consultation and a live streaming completions platform to increase their economic production.

Our Goal

ShearFRAC® strives to build ongoing technology partnerships with our clients. We work to improve every stage and every well, helping to maximize operators’ full cycle profitability, and minimize completion costs. Using ShearFRAC® technology, to measure and enhance fracture surface area as created in real-time, allows for optimal completions in unconventional reservoir.

Our team has operational and technical expertise in completion technology, software development, geoscience, geomodelling, petrophysics and reservoir engineering.
