May Lunch and Learn - Utilising the latest generation of ultrasound imaging technology for fishing and completion integrity applications

 

May 28th 2019

From 11:45 for 12:00, ends by 13:45

Venue: Aker Solutions, Aberdeen International Business Park, Dyce


Presented by Archer and Shell

The latest generation of ultrasound imaging tools output high-resolution 2-dimensional images in real-time and produces 3-dimensional rendered images within seconds. Multi-element 3 MHz ultrasound transducer arrays are combined with electronic focusing and signal multiplexing that allows optimised images to be captured in pipe sizes from 3-1/2” to 13-3/8”. The transducer arrays operate in pulse echo mode and contain no moving parts. Unlike downhole cameras, ultrasound imaging does not need optically clear liquid to be effective and the transducers directly measure internal geometries, including metal thickness.

Archer and Shell will present two case studies at this Lunch and Learn

Case study 1: Ultrasound imaging tool provides accurate measurements and 3-dimensional imaging in less than 6 hours, enabling retrieval of a problem fish.

Case study 2: Ultrasound imaging enables 3-dimensional evaluation of a nipple profile to verify the correct installation of a Landing Nipple Safety Valve. Accurate circumferential measurements allowed confidence that a standard lock mandrel could safely to used.

The Lunch and Learns provide a forum for sharing case histories, field experience and new technologies. Don’t miss this excellent networking opportunity.
