visuray commercial well operation images taqa energy coiled tubing disconnect

First Commercial Well Operation

Published 27.10.2015
Visuray announced last week a first commercial application of their X-ray wireline technology for downhole imaging in wells filled with opaque fluid. In a well, managed by TAQA Energy B.V. in Holland, Visuray’s VR90® tool successfully imaged the top of a coiled tubing disconnect with millimeter accuracy. The high-quality X-ray images in both 2D and 3D are enabling TAQA to plan fishing operations in the well, and could minimize their future intervention costs.

‘This first job of the VR90 heralds a new era of Intelligent Well Intervention,’ says Kambiz Safinya, Group CEO of Visuray. ‘Operators  will now be able to see what’s inside their wells with high reliability, and on the first try they will be able to take the appropriate correct actions to remedy their problems with certainty, thereby saving time and money.’
