Indisputable proof that returns have reached seafloor
Proper subsea cementing of riserless hole sections requires operators to confirm when returns have reached the seafloor. Halliburton takes the guesswork out of the process with GLOPOINTS tracer beads, which provide visual confirmation of subsea fluid returns.
When cameras capture light reflected from lightweight GLOPOINTS tracer beads, operators acquire solid proof that returns have reached the seafloor. GLOWPOINTS tracer beads are highly reflective to help ensure positive results — even in the murkiest of waters.
Benefits of GLOPOINTS tracer material include:
- Lighter than water or oil (specific gravity of 0.7-0.75), and breaks down at higher pressures to a weight greater than water
- Highly reflective, even in murky water
- Compatible with any fluid
- Stable up to 500°F
- Withstands extreme pressures up to 12,000 psi.
