Schlumberger announced at the 2010 SPE Annual Technology Conference and Exhibition the release of ACTive PS* integrated coiled tubing (CT) production service.
This new service couples real-time fiber-optic telemetry with existing, advanced wireline production logging tools. ACTive PS optimizes work efficiency, early production and minimizes environmental impact of equipment foot print at the well site.
“The reservoir and production measurements are provided during the intervention, where they matter most,” said Patrick Schorn, president, Schlumberger Well Services. “By providing these measurements during the intervention additional reservoir data can easily be obtained and used to optimize stimulation treatment.”
ACTive PS has been successfully deployed in Mexico, the United States and Saudi Arabia. In the Barnett shale, ConocoPhillips employed ACTive PS to understand the fracture/completion program effectiveness on their dry gas wells using combined distributed temperature survey (DTS) and production logging technologies. ACTive PS allowed ConocoPhilips to eliminate one downhole trip per well, resulting in reduced risk, cost and non-productive time.
The ACTive PS service uses a CT string incorporating fiber-optic for telemetry and a 111/16-in bottom hole assembly (BHA), which powers and communicates with the conventional production logging. Data is sent wirelessly from the working reel to the acquisition and interpretation computer on surface, eliminating the need for an on-location surface logging unit. Because the technology is totally self-contained, only the ACTive PS BHA and a production logging engineer are required on location with the CT unit.
ACTive PS is available for coiled tubing production logging, including PS Platform* new-generation production services platform and Flow Scanner* horizontal and deviated well production logging system jobs, well stimulation, and onsite production evaluation and optimization.
