Wirelessly actuate downhole tools and transmit real-time data with
Schlumberger recommended using Muzic wireless telemetry to operate the
downhole tools with acoustic signals controlled by the test engineer. With this
wireless telemetry technology, the operator could conduct the test with open
perforations above the packer instead of defaulting to the uncertainty of using
annulus pressure pulses for control.
Signature quartz gauges were included in the test string to acquire
high-precision bottomhole pressure and temperature data, which was transmitted
by Muzic telemetry to surface for real-time analysis. Additionally, to follow
the operator’s test program, Schlumberger incorporated the IRDV
intelligent remote dual valve, which provides independent command of a test
valve and a circulating valve in the toolstring. Both valves were wirelessly
enabled by Muzic telemetry.
