Halliburton (HAL) has developed a new offering in the SPECTRUM family of real-time coiled tubing services, the SPECTRUM FUSION service. The FUSION service includes the first real-time system in the market using hybrid cable technology that combines fiber-optic and electric to provide downhole communication and continuous power for a variety of diagnostic applications. The cable is conveyed through coiled tubing to deliver intervention, diagnostic and reservoir assessment services in one trip downhole.
The SPECTRUM family of services is designed to deliver more accurate and effective interventions by capturing data such as weight on bit, pressure, temperature, and acoustics, with casing collar locator and gamma ray for depth correlation in real-time. The SPECTRUM FUSION service is the new enhanced platform for real-time coiled tubing services that is designed to eliminate runs and reduce surface footprint by integrating full wireline capability with downhole intervention tools. The FUSION service combines the existing insight from fiber-optics inside the coil with power from the surface creating versatility in selecting logging tools. It also enables customers to diagnose wellbore conditions in real-time and customize the wellbore treatment or intervention operation using the data transmitted to the surface.
“Given the increasing complexity of developing mature fields and offshore environments, the SPECTRUM FUSION service’s unique combination of coiled tubing intervention and wireline diagnostic capability provides critical downhole data for customizing well intervention, reducing risk and maximizing services performed in a single run,” said David Adams, senior vice president for the Completion and Production Division, Halliburton.
