Prime Mapping: Obtaining Actual Pipe Data for Higher Downhole Performance

December 06, 2022
Vallourec
Prime Mapping is a tubular field service carried out before running-in-hole that provides actual casing and tubing data enhancing drilling and completion operations. Prime Mapping can be run on the rig floor or at the yard by Vallourec trained technicians at any time, for tubulars from any supplier. The data is obtained using a portable device called In-Pipe Rover which uses laser and/or ultrasound technology. Prime Mapping provides full-length internal diameter (ID), wall thickness (WT), and outside diameter (OD) map with thousands of data points per pipe, providing calculated ovality, eccentricity, out-of-roundness, bore and metal volume. This actual geometric data is essential for packer setting and cement displacement, and mitigates casing wear while drilling, as it allows operators to optimize their casing and tubing strings before running, thus obtaining higher downhole performance. By performing the service in any field, Prime Mapping saves time, costs, and CO2 emissions for operators who no longer need to send pipes back to UT benches.

Accurate Wellbore Positioning Using WellDefined Automated Survey Solutions

December 07, 2022
SLB
Join our expert, Mahmoud ElGizawy, to learn how automated survey management solutions can allow operating companies and service providers to access the most advanced directional survey correction algorithms to optimize drilling applications in real-time by providing accurate wellbore positioning data. This allows timely correction to the wellbore trajectory without requiring additional tools or onsite personnel. The automated survey solutions maximize reservoir production by accurately placing the well in the planned spot while avoiding collision with other wells in close proximity.
