In-Pipe Robotic solution for tubular mapping and repurposing
Speakers: Alastair Brodie, Binh NGUYEN, Vallourec Tubes
The purpose of this article is to share new developments in casing tubing technologies to help Oil & Gas operators to prevent and mitigate drilling, completion technical issues and material management. (1) Prime Mapping yard service to ensure casing full-length ID map matching with packer tolerance while setting; to provide actual casing bore volume for cement displacement to improve plugs bump; to optimize casing string by WT for high casing wear or high collapse sections (2) Tubular Repurposing service to enable operators to run/re-run/re-sell redundant pipes, focus on inactive, workover, and pulled pipes.
