Real-Time Coiled Tubing Operations, Taking the Guesswork Out of Stimulation Design

The value of taking guesswork out of stimulation design

 

An operator in California who was experiencing suboptimal production results from its oil and gas wells sought a solution to stimulate the tired formations with acid treatments to enhance permeability. After years of production, the parameters that existed early in the field’s history were no longer valid. A family of real-time diagnostic services that could be run simultaneously with coiled tubing operations was needed to give engineers a way to "see" what was going on downhole. The operator selected the ACTive family of live downhole coiled tubing operations to address the problems. The ACTive solution included a broadband fiber optic telemetry that allows simultaneous transmission of real-time data from a variety of sensors placed in the tools comprising the bottomhole assembly.
