Deepwater operators are offered this new JetStream Radio Frequency Identification circulation sub for higher flow rates, better hole cleaning, and outstanding usage flexibility.
The new subs help operators run a series of tools at different positions along the drillstring and remotely actuate valves an unlimited number of times - in a single trip.
Recently a North Sea operator deployed JetStream RFID in a 6.5-in. intermediate section drilled to 10,446-ft total depth through a soft, porous limestone formation. It was actuated 16 times to spot 29 lost-circulation materials pills. This allowed the operator to maintain loss rates below 20 bbl/hr and avoid abandoning the well.
