Coiled tubing services deliver real-time subsurface data to
help optimize well interventions and completions performance
HOUSTON - April 6, 2016 - Halliburton’s Production Solutions business line today introduced Spectrum℠
Real-Time Coiled Tubing Services. This suite of services is designed to deliver more accurate, more
complete downhole measurements, and exceptional reliability—leading to a higher return on investment for
completion and intervention operations.
Spectrum℠ Real-Time Coiled Tubing Services comprises two complementary offerings: Spectrum Diagnostic
Services and Spectrum Intervention Services. These services integrate Halliburton’s coiled tubing with
down-hole measurement tools, fiber optic sensing and telemetry, to deliver complete, accurate real-time
data. Operators are better able to minimize uncertainty, assess reservoir performance, and monitor wellbore
conditions, helping them significantly improve well intervention operations and production.
Spectrum Diagnostic Services delivers fiber-optic distributed sensing through coiled tubing to assess well
productivity and completions effectiveness by identifying fracture initiation points across the wellbore
and profiling production. An alternative to traditional production logs, Spectrum Diagnostic Services can
monitor a time series of data across the entire wellbore as opposed to single snapshots in time.
Applications for Spectrum Diagnostic Services include determining stimulation cluster efficiency, fracture
mapping, production profiling, leak detection and assessment of wellbore integrity.
"Spectrum Diagnostic Services is one of the first technologies to provide this detailed analysis on a
per stage basis for the entire length of the wellbore," said Ahmed El Demerdash, vice president of
Halliburton’s Production Solutions business line.
Spectrum Intervention Services delivers real-time monitoring from a bottom-hole assembly, with modular
sensors for measuring depth correlation with casing collar locator and gamma ray, internal and external
pressure and temperature, tool inclination, torque, tension, and compression. Compared to standard
operations where only surface parameters are available, downhole insight from Spectrum Intervention
Services helps reduce operational risk and increase precision to deliver better wells. These services have
multiple applications, including milling, wellbore cleanouts, fishing, perforating, stimulation, and
completion equipment manipulation.
“In this economic environment, customers are evaluating the effectiveness of completion methods and looking
to minimize the number of trips downhole,” El Demerdash said. "They also want to identify areas of
greatest production contribution to determine how best to extend the life of the well. Spectrum Real-Time
Coil Tubing Services enables customers to improve connectivity to the reservoir and reduce uncertainty.
These services are designed for customers seeking to increase returns on every well."
