Representing more than 75% of the coiled tubing market, the well intervention business has been taken to new levels with technology advances like increased coiled tubing diameter, better welding, and new metallurgy. Contributing to this effort is the Schlumberger ACTive family of live downhole coiled tubing services. The family combines fiber-optic technology with coiled tubing so that critical parameters like downhole temperature, pressure, and depth correlation can be know in real time. Rather than basing decisions on precalculated information, the right decisions can be made with real-time downhole information, allowing changes can be made to job design on the fly and eliminating surprises.
