A truly intelligent completion involves understanding the formation behaviour and being able to react to changes in the well bore without intervention and wirelessly.
THERMAL FLOW PROFILING
Understanding and mitigating the effects of gas cusping and water coning are common benefits attributed to seeing a thermal flowing profile. PRO-LOG achieves this wirelessly avoiding the cost and hassle of packer feed-throughs, splices, and cables to surface.
The ability to manage flow control throughout various phases of completion has always been costly and impractical. Metrol’s wireless, selectable FLOW-SURE valve system allows multiple device operation without increasing well complexity.
It is now achievable, using a combination of Metrol’s telemetry systems, to sample and collect pressure data throughout the entirety of the completion, from anulii at the surface to the toe of a horizontal section and anywhere in between.
