Full Description

The purpose of this presentation is to provide an overview of a successful video logging project from which high quality video log images have been obtained in numerous horizontal, fracture-stimulated shale gas wells.  The video logs have been used primarily to identify water entry points and to subsequently isolate the entry point from the remainder of the wellbore.  While running these logs, various streaming video images have been captured showing multiphase wellbore fluid flow in toe-up and toe-down trajectories, scale deposition, sand accumulation, plug debris and other interesting images.  The presentation will include the actual video log images captured along with selected results of subsequent water-shutoff procedures utilizing various techniques.
