Halliburton’s Production Solutions business line has introduced Spectrum Real-Time Coiled Tubing Services.  

Spectrum Real-Time Coiled Tubing Services comprises two complementary offerings: Spectrum Diagnostic Services and Spectrum Intervention Services. These services integrate Halliburton’s coiled tubing with down-hole measurement tools, fiber optic sensing and telemetry, to deliver real-time data. 

Spectrum Diagnostic Services aims to deliver fiber-optic distributed sensing through coiled tubing to assess well productivity and completions effectiveness by identifying fracture initiation points across the wellbore and profiling production.  An alternative to traditional production logs, Spectrum Diagnostic Services can monitor a time series of data across the entire wellbore as opposed to single snapshots in time. Applications for Spectrum Diagnostic Services include determining stimulation cluster efficiency, fracture mapping, production profiling, leak detection and assessment of wellbore integrity. 

Spectrum Intervention Services aims to deliver real-time monitoring from a bottom-hole assembly, with modular sensors for measuring depth correlation with casing collar locator and gamma ray, internal and external pressure and temperature, tool inclination, torque, tension, and compression.  Downhole insight from Spectrum Intervention Services can help reduce operational risk and increase precision to deliver better wells. These services have multiple applications, including milling, wellbore cleanouts, fishing, perforating, stimulation, and completion equipment manipulation.   

“In this economic environment, customers are evaluating the effectiveness of completion methods and looking to minimize the number of trips downhole,” said Ahmed El Demerdash, vice president of Halliburton’s Production Solutions business line.  “They also want to identify areas of greatest production contribution to determine how best to extend the life of the well. Spectrum Real-Time Coil Tubing Services enables customers to improve connectivity to the reservoir and reduce uncertainty.”
