Halliburton announced the delivery of its next generation well-testing technology for deepwater environments. The technology provides improved economies to operators by enabling more efficient and reliable reservoir testing.
DynaLink - Halliburton’s proven, two-way wireless acoustic telemetry system - now has the added capability to control down hole test tools from the surface during drillstem testing operations while transmitting real-time bottom hole pressure and temperature data.
Real time bottom hole pressure, temperature and fluid data, along with acoustic actuation of test tools, helps to provide operators with the benefit of changing the pre-defined well testing program based on reservoir response while testing.
“When a drillstem test is performed using memory mode devices as the only way of down hole data acquisition, an operator cannot determine if the well testing objectives have been achieved until the drillstem test string is pulled out of the hole,” said Abdalla Awara, vice president of Halliburton’s Testing and Subsea product service line. “The DynaLink high-rate down hole acoustic data acquisition gives the assurance that well-testing objectives have been achieved in real time. In short, this technology delivers efficiencies in optimizing rig time while assuring the quality of the test data.”
