The job at hand was a production logging conducted with a third party logging tool. Due to the limited rig-up height the ideal conveyance solution was the new Well Tractor® Compact Rig-Up (CR) as this tool could be configured to be little under 10 ft – exactly what the operator needed.
Total length of the applied toolstring was 47.6 ft (14.52 m), which included the Well Tractor CR and the third party PLT string. The Well Tractor CR worked flawlessly, conveying the PLT to total depth: 11,940 ft (3,639 m) at such a high speed it outperformed the winch that was set up at 105 ft/min (32 m/min).
Risks were significantly reduced as considerably fewer people were required on location just like Welltec’s lightweight, e-line technology eliminated heavy lifts.
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.
