Analogue Gauge Installation Trial Completed for Santos

I preparation for the upcoming field wide gauge installation campaign a 6 well Analogue gauge trial was performed for Santos.  The trial was performed with flawless execution and all gauges are operating as intended.  The gauges will be used for PCP pump off control.

Feedback from the Operating Company Representative “They have done an excellent job in all aspects.  I highly recommend them for future work.  They worked well with the rig and with myself.”

Casing Inspection and TCP Orientation

Recently a client asked if we could help them with orientating am ultrasonic imaging tool in casing to identify a data cable on the cement map on the outside of the casing.  Huracan was able to help and later we placed an tubing UBHO sub in the completion and orientated the TCP guns to ensure that the data cable was not perforated during the final completion.

eGyroExpress Increases Wellbore Precision

Offering increased precision for wellbore placement Huracan is pleased to introduce the eGyroExpress tool.  The tool offers a high speed continuous survey with the precision of a North Seeking gyro compass.  With the ability to log the wellbore at speeds of up to 150 m/min the eGyroExpress is the future of gyro directional surveys.

Drop Gyro Saves Wireline Mobilisation and Rig Time

A large project required increased cost efficiency and at times when only a Gyro was required the client approached Huracan for a solution. Our solution was to perform the survey using our Drop Gyro survey tool. This Gyro is dropped into the work string and a directional survey performed while pulling out of hole negating the need for a wireline unit and crew. This saves rig time and the expense of a wireline crew. Contact us today for information on how we can help you achieve your goals.

Memory Gyro Saves Client Rig Time and Money

Recently Huracan was approached to provide an efficient solution to reducing the clients cost on a multi well campaign. Huracan had the answer by combining its memory Gyro with a third party Cement Bond Log. The client was able to save valuable rig time and associated costs by combining the two single wireline runs into one, efficient run. Contact us today to see if we have a solution to your Gyro needs.

Huracan deploys winch for standalone gyro surveys

The new compact winch allows us to deploy our North Seeking Gyro to 1700m without the need for additional third party contractor. Contact us today for more information on how we can help you with your next survey.

Huracan saves 6 hours rig time

On the recent well a gyro survey was required to be completed in open hole. The previous survey provider had insisted that they were unable to log a gyro in open hole. After applying some risk mitigation steps, Huracan was able to complete the survey without incident and without the need to run the drill string back into the hole, this saved 6 hrs of drilling rig time.
