What is your challange?

  • Corrosion 
    (of tubing and other wellbore assembly elements)
  • Fishing
    (of dropped and accidentally lost downhole tools)
  • Obstruction
    (of inflow into the well)
  • Valve Failure
    (of safety and regulatory/gaslift valves in the nipples or tubing-pockets)
  • Scale
    (barite and other chemical scaling in the borehole during oil production)
  • Leakage
    (due to isolation and fitting problems, or faulty seals)

Hard Scaling in wellbore

Hard Scaling in wellbore

Carbonate or special hard scale like barite becomes the second leading operational issue globally that causes production decline and immediate termination of production. According to case video downhole jewellery and perforation have been totally covered by barium hard scale while extreme downhole mineral precipitations are observed. Considering the actual conditions, Operators could decide action plan to make the well scale free again. Using Zerlux OptEye Downhole Cameras, precise identification of nature, size and location of hard scaling can be achieved to choose a cost-effective, most proper solution to apply.
