Save rig-up and operational time

Available in both 1 11/16 and 2 1/2 in, the Vantage modular CT logging head system is designed to standardize e-line coiled tubing connectivity. Its increased reliability, modular interchangeability, and uniquely designed bayonet CT connector reduce rig-up time. And its 3-bbl/min flow-through capability speeds operational time.

Connect via plug-and-play components

The Vantage system's modular plug-and-play connections physically and electrically couple the components. These connections enable rapid interchangeability and reduce NPT. Together, the CT flush-OD bayonet connector and cable termination tool enable pretermination of the electrical connection before the CT is stabbed through the injector head chains. The Vantage system can perform multiple runs in hole without redressing.

Extend CT head life

High-strength, corrosion-resistant alloy materials protect the Vantage system from excess abrasion and wear, making it ideal for offshore, land, desert, and arctic environments—and for oil, gas, and injector wells. It is rated for a working pressures of 13,500 psi, maximum temperature of 375 degF, and maximum tensile strength of 40,000 lbm.

One of the main challenges in a CT e-line intervention is performing the operation as quickly as possible without equipment failure (loss of signal in the middle of the logging run). Assembling the electrical terminations at the end of the CT usually requires a significant amount of rig-up time. When multiple runs are needed, regular maintenance of the assembly is necessary to ensure adequate performance, which further increases rig-up time. In addition, when perforating is performed in the same intervention, the risk of BHA failure increases.
