Improve intervention effectiveness with real-time downhole measurements

ACTive real-time downhole coiled tubing services monitor and evaluate treatments while they are still in progress for better optimization—and with one trip downhole.

Consequently, the well is more quickly returned to production, minimizing well downtime.

Acquire real-time data using fiber-optic-enabled CT

The service uses fiber-optic, telemetry-enabled CT consisting of a BHA, surface electronics, and dynamic interpretation software. This enables ACTive services to deliver internal and external pressure, temperature, and casing collar locator and gamma ray depth correlation. Force measurements from the tension and compression tool and a DTS survey are also performed.

EIGHT WAYS to Reduce Well Intervention Costs
In turbulent times, optimizing the performance of existing wells is a practical choice that reduces the costs and risks associated with well intervention. Innovative coiled tubing technologies offer several key benefits, including reduced footprint, accurate measurement of bottomhole pressures and temperatures, proper depth correlation, and precise load measurements in a unique, robust package for harsh environments and complex systems.
