CoilScan engineered pipe management service provides a comprehensive CT inspection and monitors wall thickness, OD, and length to determine CT operational limits at the wellsite and prior to CT deployment. In addition to monitoring these parameters, the inspection head assesses pipe integrity throughout the job by detecting CT anomalies such as corrosion, pitting, and other types of mechanical damage. Components of the integrated service then generate an inspection report for further analysis.
The CoilScan RT real-time pipe inspection system ensures pipe reliability with continuous monitoring and tracking of defect evolution throughout the CT string’s service life. The compact system uses magnetic flux leakage (MFL) sensors, eddy current probes, and depth encoders to provide early detection of pipe defects. Due to the CoilScan RT system's ability to monitor CT in real time, changes to the CT operating envelope can be made on the fly during the job.
The CoilScan AP characterization technology is a module within CoilCAT coiled tubing computer-aided treatment that identifies and tracks recorded CT defects detected by the CoilScan RT inspection system using MFL signal matching. The technology detects the underlying CT anomaly for the respective MFL response based on a library of documented defects, which consists of actual CT defects with known dimensions.
