VR90 X-Ray Tool Reveals Unknown Object

Published 27.04.2015
In April, Visuray conducted another successful well test at a well site in Stavanger. The well in question was drilled and completed 30 years ago, and its owners have no information about the plug found at its bottom. Running the VR90 tool revealed a standard plug mandrel covered in metallic debris. Both 2D and 3D images of the mandrel were obtained in an opaque mixture of water and oil.

Interfacing with the wireline service provider was flawless despite the spread of the surface equipment components; this marked the VR90’s third successful surface configuration. A combination of good planning, communication and equipment reliability has ensured the single run job was finished on time and with the expected results.
