Test in extreme well conditions
Attempts to test at high temperatures by locating wireless-enabled tools at shallower depths within their temperature qualifications did not provide sufficient information for unambiguous quicklook interpretation.
Obtain real-time data with wireless telemetry
By incorporating all-ceramic multichip module (MCM) technology from the aerospace industry, Muzic Aeon premium-performance wireless telemetry provides reliable bidirectional wireless communication in real time across challenging environments. Testing strings united by Muzic Aeon telemetry deliver downhole data in real time and implement tool operational commands in harsh conditions where standard telemetry cannot function.
Monitor operations and make informed decisions
This first deployment of Muzic Aeon wireless telemetry was designed in collaboration between the operator and Schlumberger, uniting a comprehensive DST string including a CERTIS high-integrity reservoir test isolation system, IRDV intelligent remote dual valve, SCAR inline independent reservoir fluid sampling, and multiple gauge carriers both above and below the packer. Automated data acquisition delivered data in real time at the rig and for transmission via InterACT global connectivity, collaboration, and information service. With everyone having the same data access, the rig personnel, well test engineers, and subsurface teams were able to efficiently monitor operations and make decisions informed by the Testing Manager well testing real-time data monitoring and collaboration software.
The test string was in the well for 17 days, 14 of which were at temperatures above 340 degF. The maximum temperature was above 355 degF. Despite the harsh sour conditions, Muzic Aeon telemetry performed impeccably, with no degradation of resolution or accuracy in comparison with conventional memory gauge performance.
