Well Tractor® sets new world records for horizontal logging
Several attempts to acquire PLT’s previously were unsuccessful as the service provider was unable to reach sufficient depth in the wells.
Welltec® was approached to try a 3rd well with their e-line channel partner, Halliburton TD was >27,500 and the lateral length itself was >19,500 ft.
Logging While Tractoring (LWT) to obtain the data was accomplished from hold-up depth all the way to TD ~ 27,500 ft. PLT data was acquired in both up and down passes from TD providing the operator previously unobtainable knowledge about their reservoir and the well’s production profile.
Longest, single pass distance tractored ~ 22,951 ft (6,996m).
Longest, single pass distance tractored in a horizontal section ~ 19,500 ft (5,943m).
Longest, single pass distance tractored while acquiring real time logging (PLT) data (LWT operation).
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.
