DarkVision and Ovintiv’s industry-leading collaboration on the identification and quantification of plug-related casing damage was recognized by an industry-leading publication – the Journal of Petroleum Technology (JPT).

Ovintiv’s completions engineers rely on DarkVision’s high-resolution 3D data to accurately identify and measure casing damage – whether it is caused by leaking frac plugs, drill wear, or geological forces.

And it’s important. Blake Horton, Ovintiv’s Sr. Production Engineer, notes that “When a plug fails, your treatment isolation is lost. The whole treatment is going down into the previous stage, and you are never going to get the resource out of the stage that you are supposed to.” This means that not only is there inefficient use of capital on wasted proppant and pumping time, but could also lead to significant unrecovered resources left in the ground.
