XACT deploys network in BP GoM well

XACT Downhole Telemetry deployed six deepwater Gulf of Mexico (GoM) deployments that provided real-time downhole data during a deepwater completion installation with BP.

BP successfully accessed real-time downhole data throughout the well’s completion, using XACT’s acoustic telemetry network, which was integrated into the operation. 

Six downhole measurement nodes from XACT spanned the 22,700ft well, enabling BP to monitor critical parameters including downhole weight on the crossover tool, and pressures and temperatures during the well’s completion.

“The success of this application illustrates the ability of the XACT Acoustic Telemetry Network to provide critical downhole parameters during complex operations,” said Jason Roe, president and CEO of XACT.

XACT has worked with BP’s Upstream Technology group to further develop and deploy the acoustic telemetry network. BP has provided investment funding to XACT through BP Ventures. 

“BP partners with XACT to help develop technology that enhances well construction and completions,” said Issam Dairanieh, managing director at BP Ventures. “We view this as a promising digital technology and are pleased to support its deployment and wider industry acceptance.” 

XACT had multiple achievements in 2015, including transmitting real-time data during a liner installation, cementing operations and while tripping. XACT delivered these operations in GoM with major operators and demonstrated the potential value of real-time applied acoustics to enable decisions for lower cost wells.
