Description

One of the most frustrating and costly aspects of any well bore intervention operation - regardless of whether it is fishing, milling, cutting or a casing exit job - is when little or no progress is made during a trip in the well and tools are returned to surface showing no visible signs of performing work. Conversely, but equally frustrating, is when a down hole tool becomes worn or damaged beyond its useable life and the operator continues to try to make progress based on readings from traditional surface based indicators and gauges. These situations are becoming more common as wells become deeper, more complex and technically challenging to intervene. To address these problems, a new smart downhole system has been developed that provides a new level of process control to the operator while the work is being carried out. The system incorporates a short modular sensor sub that is integrated into the bottomhole assembly (BHA). Measurements such as weight on bit, torque, RPM, bending moment, vibration, annular and bore pressures are gathered down hole to provide a clearer picture of what is occurring at and around the down hole tools. Information is then transmitted to surface using mud pulse telemetry and viewed on a rig floor monitor. This allows the operator to make informed decisions and take immediate action to optimize the intervention being performed.

Please register early online in order to facilitate the Northside study group to better plan and streamline the luncheon. Walk-ins will be accepted on a space available basis. Please arrive early, walk-ins are seated on a first come/first serve basis. Thank You.
