Visuray announced a first commercial application of their X-ray wireline technology for downhole imaging in wells filled with opaque fluid. In a well, managed by TAQA Energy in Holland, Visuray’s VR90 tool successfully imaged the top of a coiled tubing disconnect with millimeter accuracy. The X-ray images are in both 2D and 3D.
"This first job of the VR90 heralds a new era of intelligent well intervention," says Kambiz Safinya, group CEO of Visuray. "Operators will now be able to see what's inside their wells with high reliability, and on the first try they will be able to take the appropriate correct actions to remedy their problems with certainty, thereby saving time and money."
Visuray is an oilfield service company that offers downhole X-ray imaging. The company has offices in Malta, Stavanger and Houston, Texas.
