over a long horizontal stretch prior to setting the plug. During the job planning risk analysis, a clear stuck-risk became apparent in the event that the HSM sleeve failed to release the shifting tool.
As contingency planning, a Welltec Release Device® was placed below the Well Stroker®, allowing the option to release on command or timer. The Well Stroker 338 XS was used to successfully
set the plug and the prong in the 4.437” nipple. Afterwards, the Well Stroker was used to pull the prong and the plug and for shifting of the HSM.
Less fuel requirements (operations and transport)
The Welltec® operations were the operator’s first wireline mechanical interventions.
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.
The Well Stroker® can push or pull multiple times in the same run irrespective of the depth and deviation. It delivers up to 100,000 lbs of axial force downhole using a bi-directional hydraulic ram.
Welltec Release Device® (WRD®) is a simple tool which adds versatility and risk reduction to the operation. It provides predetermined locations in the toolstring where it can be parted, should it become stuck.
