BP accessed real-time downhole data throughout the well’s completion, using XACT’s acoustic telemetry network, which was seamlessly integrated into the operation, the company said.
Six downhole measurement nodes from XACT spanned the 22,700-ft (6,919-m) well, enabling BP to monitor critical parameters including downhole weight on the crossover tool, and pressures and temperatures during the well’s completion.
It has worked with BP’s Upstream Technology group to further develop and deploy the acoustic telemetry network and said that the operator provided investment funding to the company through BP Ventures.
In addition, XACT said it achieved multiple industry and application firsts in 2015, including transmitting real-time data.
