Ziebel performs world's first
02.10.2008
Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) and Ziebel have recently performed two very successful well-logging interventions in horizontal wellbores having cased and open hole sections.

The ZipLog system is based on a semistiff spoolable carbon "rod” that is pushed into live wells for well logging applications, where distributed temperature (DTS) is measured in real time along the entire "rod". Also, the ZipLog system comprises an in-house developed high accuracy fiber optic point pressure sensor. In addition it also has an integrated sensor verifying movement of lower end of "rod" while deploying into the wellbore.

This follows a two years development and qualification program performed by a ZipLog team established and based in Norway, where also a 3400 foot horizontal mock-up test "well" has been built.

The rig-up of the system, wellbore deployment and data acquisition functioned very well, where a continued intervention logging program with PDO will follow.

Deploying the system in the wellbore we were able to monitor real time data from the wellbore tool transport verification sensor, where we were also able to detect lower "rod" end passing nipple profiles, going from casing to tubing, and entering into open hole section.

The technology inventor, Henning Hansen, VP Technology & Marketing, and Geir Owe Egge, VP World Wide Sales, Ziebel says:

"We are very pleased to work with a professional & innovative client such as PDO which has encouraged new technology providing greater value for their assets. The Ziebel team is honored by having their support and willingness to try new technologies to learn more about the wells that will lead to improved and increased reservoir drainage.

Ziebel see the ZipLog system as a game changing state-of-the-art wellbore intervention method that can be further developed to perform a wide variety of wellbore data acquisitions and operations.

These first successful jobs, where we have demonstrated a new and very effective R&D method having some of our most professional people involved, are the launch of a service that provides great benefits for our clients."

Furthermore, Ziebel will express a sincere appreciation to all involved in making this technology introduction a success. An especially appreciation goes to PDO and Ziebel field and support team.

Peter Male WRM Team Leader for Yibal Cluster, Petroleum Development Oman says:

“The first two jobs that were run went off without any problems; in one well the “rod” was able to reach further than in a recent coiled tubing intervention. The quality of the data received exceeded my expectations. We have been able to perform detailed analysis and interpretation that would not have been possible with other technologies.”
