After this, the client could not pull the pipe free and decided to run with a free point tool. Following this run with the free point tool, the client ran in hole again with the same toolstring as on the first run where the colliding tool was detonated at a depth of 19,685 ft (6,000 m).
On the second run, the Well Tractor covered an impressive 22,418 ft (6,833 m) in one trip into the well. The third and last run was also successful where 12,431 ft (3,789 m) were tractored, enabling the operator to detonate at a depth of 19,652 ft (5,990 m).
This operation set a world record for longest distance tractored in one well with the Well Tractor 218. In total 51,056 ft (15,562 m) were tractored.
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.
