Probably Our Most Exciting Quarterly Update so Far!

Updated: Jan 6, 2022

Q3 2021 was an exciting one for DuneFront! We continued delivering consulting projects and online training around the world, including for clients in Russia and the USA. We also grew our PackPro client base once again with a new major Operator in Malaysia adopting the software. However, one project stood out this quarter – a multi-well gravel pack design and evaluation project pushing the boundaries of shunted completions.

This was an exciting and challenging project involving gravel packing some of the world’s longest shunted wells in narrow pore-frac pressure margins. We worked closely with our clients to review analogous operations, analyze data from their previous treatments, and calibrate our PackPro model so we could better assess and mitigate the risks in upcoming operations. Given the tight margins, we explored enabling technology and determined that diverter valves were critical to the successful completion of these wells. Since a diverter valve model didn’t exist in the industry, we developed our own and used it with PackPro to provide the client with optimal design recommendations and, ultimately, the confidence that these challenging wells can be successfully completed.


We’ve also been quietly working on expanding our software portfolio as part of a longer-term strategy and are currently developing a brand-new software package that many of you will find very useful, both for sand control and other applications – keep an eye on your inbox and our social media channels for the official announcement next quarter!

If you have any sand control requirements we would be happy to work with you to create a custom solution for your needs. Click here to get in touch!
