Aberdeen-based wireline and well intervention technology specialist Wireline Engineering has recorded a successful first rental operation in Nigeria.
The job involved the company’s patented Roller Bogie® tools to convey open hole wireline logging equipment to target depth in an offshore well operated by a major Nigerian oil and gas company Afren. Due to the positive outcome of the operation, further work is now planned for the next phase of operations.
Director of Wireline Engineering Bill Petrie said: “We develop these technologies with the aim of bringing substantial benefits to our customers, and the more effectively we do that, the more our business grows as a result.”
A total of three wireline runs were completed without incident, each to a depth of around 12,000ft at a sustained well deviation of 64°. Significant time and economic savings were achieved for the customer by eliminating the need for pipe conveyed logging methods.
