This video of the month showcases how the application of RestrictionVA, supported by Optis technology, helped an operator in Canada understand and overcome a restriction in their unconventional well.
The operator was midway through a frac, when they experienced a hold-up at around 2,500 metres, which they suspected to be a casing collapse. With a frac fleet now on standby, and live guns on site, diagnosing and resolving the issue is essential to prevent escalating costs and reduce operational risk.
With time being critical, EV rapidly mobilized a 24-arm Integrated Video Caliper, or IVC, from one of our many strategically located operating bases. The IVC was deployed on E-Line, providing real time high-definition video, combined with multi finger caliper measurements to help identify the causes of the hold up.
Upon reaching 2050 metres, the cause of the hold-up was immediately identified. A full breach of the casing was located just above a connection. Watch the video or download the PDF Case Study below to find out more.
