Endure greater tensile and compressive forces when perforating highly deviated and horizontal wells
While known for being flexible, coiled tubing (CT) also delivers a rigidity and strength enabling greater tensile and compressive force endurance, which is a major operational advantage when perforating in highly deviated and horizontal wells or with longer gun strings. Additional gains in depth control are available by integrating a casing collar locator and gamma ray detector.
To ensure target zone coverage, ACTive Perf CT real-time perforating service is available for single-run perforating with accurate depth control, hydrostatic balance control, and avoidance of formation damage, formation fluid invasion, and formation sanding. The service can be deployed with other ACTive services tools to provide operators with additional information.
Perform live well perforating
CT perforating is ideal for live wells. Pressure control techniques are used to run long gun strings and either drop off or retrieve the guns without having to kill the well.
Improve subsea well perforating
In subsea wells, the subsea lubricator defines the length of gun that can be run. With other wells, the surface riser or surface lubricator valve determines the length of gun. CIRP completion insertion and removal under pressure equipment can be used in conjunction with CT to deploy and retrieve guns under pressure.
