Based on proven capabilities, high reliability in other areas for this operator and Pinnacle’s recommending our tools, the Well Tractor® 318 was selected for conveyance.
The Pinnacle MSM equipment was pulled up hole sequentially to match the stages being frac’d in the adjacent well and then returned to surface upon completion.
For the operator it was key to find a conveyance tool that would enable them to quickly and reliably reach the desired depth for data acquisition and the Well Tractor proved the best tool applied for this operation.
This operation maintains a solid track record and Welltec, Pinnacle and the operator is considering the same toolstring configuration for two other major projects in long reach laterals.
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.
