Spin-off project from HOP: Technical Verification project

11.10.2016

The ongoing Hole in One Producer (HOP) project aims to develop a concept for constructing ultra-extended reach wells.

Recently, a follow-up technical verification project on deployment of the Traction Tool developed for HOP, was started at IRIS Energy in cooperation with IRIS Forskningsinvest and HOP AS.

- The length of a long reach horizontal well is often limited due to the risk of not being able to install the completion. When running long liners and sand screens, frictional lock-up can be a major challenge. Assisting the installation of liners or sand screens with a tool providing traction downhole can assist the efficient completion of extended reach wells and thereby enable drainage further into the reservoir, says Erlend Randeberg.

In order to reach extreme horizontal departures a Traction Tool has been built in full scale and tested as a part of the HOP project. The new technical verification project will build on these test results and aims to investigate the application of the traction tool in challenging wells.

- IRIS Energy will modify the Traction Tool and perform extensive testing in casing and open hole. The specifications of the tool will be finalized in close collaboration with the industry, says Randeberg.

The project is funded through FORNY2020, The Research Council of Norway’s programme for commercialising and promoting innovation based on R&D results.
