After rig-up, the Well Tractor 318 XR performed nine runs in total, conveying two or three stages of perforating guns per run. Rig-up time lasted only 84 hours. In that time, the Well Tractor conveyed the perforating guns a total tractoring distance of 87,409 ft (16.6 miles). Four to six stages were conveyed and perforated each day. The lengths conveyed within the lateral throughout the operations ranged from 7,878 ft to 11,533 ft. The Well Tractor averaged speeds of 40 to 45 feet per minute (fpm) while conveying tools, with a top speed of over 62 fpm.
Multiple runs in this extended reach lateral further showcased the Well Tractor’s hardiness and efficiency at conveying tools across significant distances. The client was satisfied and impressed by the Well Tractor throughout this job.
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.
