Schlumberger Releases SPARK Stimulation Technology Delivery Platform

Services merge into delivery platform to offer new solution for stimulation applications

Schlumberger today introduced the SPARK* stimulation technology delivery platform. Through collaboration with customers, the platform merges Schlumberger stimulation technology, chemistry and exclusive techniques to provide a new solution to address stimulation needs.

“We are supporting our customers by coupling our proprietary fluid systems, blending equipment and engineering expertise with non-Schlumberger pumping units,” said Dominique Malard, president, Schlumberger Well Services. “This initiative will leverage high-pressure pumping equipment provided by third-party services—whether vertically integrated customers or service contractors—to offer new options for stimulation applications.”

The SPARK stimulation technology delivery platform includes HiWAY* flow-channel hydraulic fracturing service to create infinite-conductivity channels for hydrocarbon flow, OpenFRAC* family fluid additive systems to provide high performance with full disclosure, and ClearFRAC* polymer-free fracturing fluid for greater fracturing efficiency with less reservoir damage when compared to conventional systems.

One south Texas customer, working in the Eagle Ford formation, sought to increase operational efficiency in an area where some operations have shifted from conventional slickwater hydraulic fracture fluids treatments to engineered solutions. However, the customer already owned a frac fleet and did not want to have crews and high-pressure equipment sitting idle. With the SPARK platform, the customer used their own frac crews in conjunction with the HiWAY channel-fracturing service. On average, HiWAY service has helped Eagle Ford customers increase production by more than 20% while reducing water usage by 25% and proppant consumption by 42%.

Additional services, including cementing, are being developed as part of the SPARK technology delivery platform. For more information, visit www.slb.com/SPARK.
