PLT conveyance in horizontal section
Max. temperature248°F (120°C)
Max. deviation90° (3,690m to 4,014m)
Total depth reached13,169 ft (4,014m)
The wells were highly deviated with some horizontal sections and high amounts of H2S and CO2 were standard factors to overcome in this environment.
The Well Tractor® conveyed the PLT to TD from 11,978 ft to 13,146 ft (4,007m
- 3,651m) in a highly deviated well (up to 90°).
Furthermore, environmental impacts were reduced due to mobilizing lighter equipment and engaging fewer people.
Using an e-line solution instead of coiled tubing in these 41/2" completions also led to better PLT data as the flow was not restricted by the coiled tubing volume.
In the future, the operator will consult Welltec for similar operations.
The Well Tractor was regarded as a revolution in the industry when it was introduced in the 1990’s. It enables operators to extend the reach of traditional e-line deployment into highly deviated and horizontal wells.
