Pipe Recovery in Extended Reach Well, Ivory Coast

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 12/30/2012, Location: Africa

Responding fast to client needs Welltec has mobilized a pipe recovery solution to a remote platform off the Ivory Coast in less than 48 hours. The pipe had gotten stuck in an extended reach well and traditional methods to free the pipe were not successful. As Welltec’s e-line technology could be mobilized extremely fast, this solution was preferred by the client.

The 218 Well Tractor successfully conveyed a third party cutting tool down to 14,295 ft (4,357 m) in the 78° deviated well. It was then decided to position the cutting tool at the nearest joint where the drill pipe was cut.

Significant time savings were achieved during this operation. Where Welltec was able to perform the job in less than two days, coiled tubing would have taken up to two weeks to mobilize offshore. This generated over $3 million in cost savings based on the rates for the jack up rig.

Due to this successful operation, the client is now considering expanding Welltec’s services as a contingency for all of their development fields.
