Acoustic telemetry network provides real-time data during deepwater frac pack completions

Most of the telemetry platforms in existence today don’t provide real-time data during completions. XACT Downhole Telemetry developed its acoustic telemetry network to provide pressure, temperature, tension, torque and bending data during completion operations. At the 2017 SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition in San Antonio, Texas, the company highlighted recent deepwater case studies in which the system provided crucial data during frac pack completions. In this video from the conference on 10 October, Andy Hawthorn, Director of Solutions, explains how the network was used to help an operator free a bottomhole assembly that was stuck in the circulating position. He also discusses a deployment in which the network helped an operator to determine whether the perforating guns had fired.
