Latest downhole well trial: Slickline with steel encapsulation

27 Nov 2020

We strive to develop market-driven and fit-for-purpose cables for the O&G industry. With innovation and shared dedication, we integrate advanced features in our cables, we aim to enhance our customer capability for intelligent surveillance and the ability to make decisions on site.

Recently, our fiber optic slickline with steel encapsulation has been deployed for a downhole well trial in Europe. The fiber-enabled slickline was successfully tested on the wellsite, providing DAS/DTS data as well as rapid visualization, manipulation, and integration of DFOS information with other well data.

The customer used their existing crew winch and pressure control equipment minimizing the need for additional crew and hardware. The DFOS data from the slickline can now be fully integrated with other customer’s services, enabling them to offer a comprehensive surveillance package to operators.

Our engineers meticulously test these slicklines for mechanical and optical standards, making sure they meet stringent requirements for the downhole harsh environment. These slicklines are also available in hybrid version, making it easy for customers to obtain optical test data along with running their electrical PLT tools.

Please contact us for details about the technology, how it can enhance your production and how we can support you in implementing it in the most cost-effective way.
