Ely and Associates’ personnel have over 800 years of combined experience in field supervision and quality control of stimulation treatments. Detailed supervision, which includes quality control of fracturing fluids and additives, is essential for the success of all hydraulic fracture treatments. Basic quality control procedures, such as monitoring fluid viscosity and conducting pre- and post-treatment inventories, are performed on every treatment Ely and Associates supervises. Additionally, Ely and Associates can provide intense quality control, which includes the prejob analysis of fluid viscosity on site at in-situ conditions, to determine gel stability and proper breaker loadings. After the frac treatment, Ely’s engineers provide recommendations for flow back of the well to maximize frac fluid cleanup and minimize damage to the fracture.
