What is your challange?

  • Corrosion 
    (of tubing and other wellbore assembly elements)
  • Fishing
    (of dropped and accidentally lost downhole tools)
  • Obstruction
    (of inflow into the well)
  • Valve Failure
    (of safety and regulatory/gaslift valves in the nipples or tubing-pockets)
  • Scale
    (barite and other chemical scaling in the borehole during oil production)
  • Leakage
    (due to isolation and fitting problems, or faulty seals)

Restrictions in flow

Restrictions in flow

Downhole tubulars (tubings, casings) can limit the flow in a numerous way resulting production decline or immediate safety and environmental problems. Wellbore access could be completely barriered and with limited available information from well-depth about the actual downhole conditions operators might be unable to make proper decisions. Using Zerlux OptEye Downhole Cameras downhole barriers can be identified, and a cost-effective and most safe solution could be applied.
