The world's first Pre-Installed Cable Protectors head deep into an offshore oil well
This Innovation by Vallourec has been trialed by a major UK operator with a number of 5 ½” VAM TOP ® cable protectors being used during their completion running operations.
Their feedback was very positive with confirmation of the time savings and single person use. The Completions Supervisor commented: “The general consensus of the team is that everyone likes the product and happy to run them.”
During the trial they were picked up with standard side door elevators and supported the weight of 1,100m of tubing
. They are now supporting and protecting a pressure and temperature cable that will provide real-time data to the production platform during the life of the well.
As this is the start of a multi well project
the completion team are keen to use these on all remaining wells
