This video of the month showcases how the application of RestrictionVA, supported by Optis technology, helped a leading operator in the Middle East understand a restriction in one of the laterals, preventing them from completing an acid stimulation in their oil producing multi-lateral well.
The well in question features a smart completion, involving an inner completion window aligned to a milled out casing window, enabling access to the upper lateral for acid stimulation to enhance production. The operator encountered an unknown restriction preventing access to the upper lateral. With well production critically on hold, the operator needed real-time understanding of the issue downhole.
EV’s Optis R125 camera was deployed on Electric-Line to provide real-time visual confirmation of the restriction.
The camera was run downhole to the target depth, where the real-time footage revealed the smart completion window to be mis-aligned with the outer casing window. The detailed sideview footage identified the casing overlap in more detail, revealing the extent of the restricted access. Using EV’s Integrated Dimensioning software, an EV analyst provided detailed and accurate measurements of the smart casing window respective to the outer casing window, providing concise confirmation of the restricted access and extent of misalignment.
