Validation with Independent Diagnostics

DNA Diagnostics + Pressure Gauges

Biota applied DNA Diagnostics to identify which one of the neighboring wells was responsible for the frac hit with a monitored producing well. Changes in percent contribution of DNA contribution from before to after the frac were used as the metric.

Results showed that “Well 4” was in communication with the monitored well. Although blinded to the result, DNA Diagnostic results were validated by the operator as the correct well showing the pressure response. The operator will continue to use this diagnostic to determine the extent of the reservoir connectivity over time.

DNA Diagnostics + Chemical Tracers

Biota applied DNA Diagnostics to identify potential sweet spots along a five thousand foot lateral.

The customer ultimately conducted a tracer study along the same well to determine initial production.

In overlaying the data, one can observe a 90% correspondence (9 out of 10 stages) between Biota’s initial assessment and the actual output.

DNA Diagnostics + Geochemistry

Biota applied DNA Diagnostics to profile production along 3 formations in a vertically fractured well. To validate the results, an independent geochemical analysis was conducted. In overlaying the data, one can observe DNA sequences had a strong correspondence to this established technique.
