Diagnostic Fracture Injection Tests (DFIT) have become a standard practice in pressure transient testing and in the planning of efficient well stimulation. DFIT’s can be used as a low cost, non-invasive method to determine reservoir pressure, permeability, fracture gradients, and fracture closure pressure to maximize savings on frac designs. Testing across a development area can also help illuminate possible pressure depletion between parent-child wells.

Real-Time DFIT Data – A Case Study

Several months ago, Reservoir Data Systems was called upon by a notable client to provide real-time solutions on a large-scale data project. The client allocated an annual budget of $500k for the project, with the hopes of capturing DFITs on 50 wells ($10k being the average expected cost per gauge rental per test). Using memory […]

SPE DFIT Conference Takeaways

  Two weeks ago, Reservoir Data Systems sponsored a DFIT Processes and Applications SPE Workshop in Houston and it was a huge success!  Over 90 industry experts, experienced engineers, and distinguished academics came together to share best practices and provide valuable insights.  Before the workshop, I spoke to various reservoir and completion engineers from different […]

Decrease Costs and Downtime with Real-Time DFIT Data

Have you ever found yourself sitting in your office wondering how the DFIT you pumped last week was going on your well a thousand miles away? How do you check it? How do you know where you’re at in your test? In the year 2015, we still rely on simple surface and downhole pressure memory gauges […]

Frac Interference

Recording and streaming pressure data of clustered wells that are offset to wells being fractured can reveal inter-well pressure interference/communication in certain zones and can lead to corrective measures to optimize well spacing and maximize production. In a time where it is not uncommon to see several wells drilled on a single pad, monitoring your offset wells for interference is more important than ever.


  • Monitor and/or protect offset wells during pressure pumping
  • Perfectly time-synchronized data regardless of well location
  • Evaluate well spacing and frac designs
  • Understand where your fracture is going
  • High resolution, high accuracy, one-second data
  • Perfect solution for SWPN, Reveal, FDI, and other frac analysis/diagnostics

Acoustic Surveys

Whether determining Bottom hole pressure, monitoring overbalance on a low-pressure recompletion, optimizing artificial lift, or even determining pipe restrictions, acoustic shots can be very versatile. It is a non-intrusive way to understand fluid levels and id profiles in wells.


  • Options for manual or automated shots for continuous testing
  • Estimate bottom-hole pressure calculations by pairing fluid shots with surface pressure
  • Locate scale, paraffin, and other common blockages

There are only a few times that you can obtain an accurate reservoir pressure: during a DFIT or when you shut-in a well. If you are shutting in your wells, seize this opportunity to acquire an accurate reservoir pressure. Understanding reservoir pressure is central to improving every part of your strategy—from reserves to completions to production.


  • Determine reservoir pressure, formation damage/skin, inter-well communication among other reservoir perimeters
  • High accuracy, high temperature, high-pressure down-hole data
  • Deployed via side/pocket mandrel, X/XN/Nipple, gas-lift valve, and/or below a plug.
  • Option to run surface pressure and fluid levels for scenarios where downhole gauges can’t be run.
