What was achieved
UltraTRAC Mono all-terrain wireline tractors with logging-while-tractoring functionality to acquire data in both up and down passes were paired with the 2-44 StreamLINE iX cable to convey the Flow Scanner production logging system. The Flow Scanner system aligns multiple minispinners and arrays of optical and electrical probes across the vertical axis of the well, regardless of deviation, to provide a complete three-phase flow analysis of complex nonvertical wells in real time.
The Flow Scanner system was successfully conveyed to 27,822 ft, including tractoring more than 17,800 ft. For the first time in this well, the flowing data acquired while tractoring down and shut-in data were measured—with the time-saving bonus of a single run. The reduced friction resulting from the smooth jacket of StreamLINE iX cable that made this successful deployment possible was evident in the lower surface tension than in previous conventional runs. With this high-quality data, the operator could finally evaluate zonal contributions and horizontal drain performance.
