Two Middle East Operators Achieve Real-Time Perforating

Perforating with coiled tubing (CT) has earned its stripes as a reliable method for a wide range of downhole challenges, from high-deviation well trajectories to extended-reach wells to high-rate, high-pressure reservoirs. Two Middle East operators successfully deployed a safer, more efficient and cost-effective method for selective perforating with CT on conventional and unconventional horizontal wells, accomplishing in one run what otherwise would have required multiple runs. The Schlumberger ACTive OptiFIRE CT real-time selective perforating and activation system combines the advantages of wireline-addressable switches, selective perforating guns, and secure detonators with the fast telemetry and advantages of the ACTive fiber optic-enabled telemetry system for on-command perforating and real-time detonation confirmation into a CT solution that can effectively reach target depth. This system eliminates the need to have both a wireline crew and a CT crew at the well site, minimizing the environmental footprint and reducing rigup and mobilization costs.
