Schlumberger (SLB) has introduced the ACTive Q CT real-time downhole flow measurement service, which delivers real-time injection diagnostics and treatment evaluation in one run in a well.
“Fluid injection monitoring and placement often requires customers to reach conclusions through trial and error or time-consuming logging operations,” said Amerino Gatti, president, Well Services, SLB. “With the ability to measure pressure, temperature and fluid velocity in real time during interventions, the ACTive Q service improves our customers’ understanding of downhole wellbore and reservoir behaviors while intervention is ongoing. This helps facilitate customers’ decision making and improve the effectiveness of treatment placement.”
With the ACTive Q service, which couples fiber-optic telemetry and calorimetric flow measurements, customers and SLB can evaluate the flow rate contribution to each interval, review the data in real time and adjust the pumping schedule as needed for diversion and subsequent stimulation stages.
The ACTive Q service has provided real-time flow measurement information for several operators in the Middle East, North Africa and Central America.
