Well intervention on CO2 injection wells
During a well intervention for a major operator, Halliburton delivered a wireless barrier monitoring solution that allowed for pressure testing and verification in real time. This would mark the first global installation of an integrated barrier system that combines the Evo-Trieve retrievable bridge plug with the DynaLink wireless acoustic telemetry system.
The operator needed to complete well intervention operations, which included removing and re-installing the Christmas tree on a CO2 injection well. This required a verified shallow-set barrier to secure and control the well.
Halliburton teams from Testing and Subsea (TSS) and Completion Tools (HCT) recently began collaborating to develop an integrated barrier system that provides a reliable barrier using the Evo-Trieve retrievable bridge plug and wireless monitoring and verification using the DynaLink telemetry system. After meeting with the operator and carefully considering the job objectives, Halliburton recommended installing a 4.5-in. Evo-Trieve retrievable bridge plug equipped with a DynaLink system single quartz gauge.
The bridge plug/gauge combination was installed below the tubing hanger and pressure tested. A DynaLink system repeater with surface wireless kit was mounted onto the wellhead base and the signal sent to the data acquisition unit located in an air-conditioned container.

technology driven solution
Through collaboration between product service lines (PSLs), Halliburton delivered a reliable technology-driven solution that allowed the operator to monitor shallow barrier integrity wirelessly, maximizing asset value. Access to real-time data and diagnostics mitigated risks to personnel working in the well bay area, enabled quicker decision making, and helped eliminate uncertainty with pressuring up gas volume to conduct a positive test. In addition, the barrier monitoring system provided valuable data prior to equalizing and retrieving the bridge plug.
The Evo-Trieve bridge plug is a high-performance retrievable monobore plugging device that may be set at a predetermined point, anywhere in the tubing or casing.Product Information
The DynaLink telemetry system enables the simultaneous acquisition of real-time data from gauges located at different positions in the tool string, enabling applications such as data assurance, testing interference between different formations, and monitoring hydrate formation conditions along riser.Product Information
The DataSphere permanent monitoring suite is a robust combination of the best in sand control, multilateral and intelligent completion technology
