Gravel pack carriers

Reservoir Group Well Monitoring have combined a cost effective package of downhole memory gauges and gauge carriers to acquire data during the gravel packing process.

Reservoir Group Well Monitoring have put together a cost effective package of downhole memory gauges and gauge carriers to acquire data during the gravel packing process. The gauges are located at the top of the wash-pipe and at regular intervals along the wash-pipe so the gravel packing specialist and oil company can ensure that the gravel has been deployed correctly and verify the gravel pack model is correct.

We have rental packages available at various locations or bespoke equipment can be designed and manufactured for customers to purchase.

Benefits

This field proven system has been successfully run for most leading Sand Control companies in the UK, Europe, Baku, Russia, West Africa, Australia, Indonesia and Brunei.

Fully automated package which arrives at the location ready to run, so no additional personnel are required at the well-site.

The batteries used with these gauges fall below the IATA dangerous goods threshold so can be transported by air or sea with no additional paperwork or restrictions.

 

Deliverables

The data confirms the gravel pack has been deployed correctly.

Provides corroboration that the Sand Control model is correct.

Exported data can be imported into any modelling program.
