Due to the swift response of Welltec, total downtime was limited to just five days and the operator avoided having to mobilize heavy equipment. The Well Cleaner® PST HV created a clear path to the GS profile enabling successful pulling of the problematic sand screen and lock mandrel – a task the conventional method had failed to perform.
During subsequent well testing, well injection up to 22,000 bwpd was achieved compared to zero previously. The well is now ready for the operator to finish conversion to an injector which will facilitate an increase in production from the depleting field.
Following the successful completion of the job the operator stated: “Great Teamwork between the Wireline service company and the Welltec® crew enabled successful completion of a difficult job during day operations only.”
