This well was located in the Haynesville Shale on the border between Texas and Louisiana, an area in which the shale formation lies deep and the wells are very hot.
The bottom hole temperature was recorded with a temperature strip in the Well Tractor, which showed ~385°F (~200°C).
There two successful perforation runs for a casing recovery operation were made, saving considerable rig time and related costs. Following that we were mobilized for conveyance of a CBL tool in the same well.
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.
