Petroleum Directory: Schlumberger releases ACTive downhole coiled-tubing services

In early May, Schlumberger released the ACTive family of live downhole coiled-tubing services. The company said these services provide innovative interventions to elevate the performance, efficiency and results of coiled-tubing operations in various types of well configurations.

A ruggedized high-bandwidth fiber-optic cable deployed inside the coiled-tubing string connects bottomhole sensors with surface monitors and controls, allowing engineers to measure, interpret, and act on downhole events in real time as they unfold.

Continuous monitoring provides instantaneous insight and quantitative feedback on the progress of downhole treatments, and alerts the engineer to any deviation from the job design.

The real-time measurements can be instantly cross-referenced to surface and reservoir data so that service performance can be evaluated and enhanced, Schlumberger said.

“You can only improve what you can measure,” said Sherif Foda, vice president, coiled-tubing services, Schlumberger. Presently, the ACTive portfolio is composed of six services.
