What is the Role of Wireline Services in the Oil and Gas Industry, and how does
Posted by Ajinkya on March 26th, 2021
Wireline Services is a subset of Groundwater Monitoring. Wireline Services is generally the electrical cable technology utilized by oil and gas extraction well operators for underground good detection, pipeline protection, pipeline integrity monitoring, reservoir testing, and spill response activities. Oil and Gas well drilling requires an in-depth understanding of pipeline integrity, pressure control, operation, testing, and reporting requirements. The industry must also implement a protocol for data transfer between operators and engineers and between geologists and operators to facilitate accurate good information and analysis.
Wireline Services is divided into two main categories namely surface testing and subsurface testing. Subsurface testing is performed on a regular basis while surface testing is only performed when the well is hydraulically fractured, has had an explosion, or has experienced a large amount of groundwater movement. Surface testing may include testing for contamination, underground migration, hydrocarbon seepage, and surface and subsurface movement. Many companies that specialize in these types of wells will perform surface testing as a part of an initial well assessment. This process includes the detection of any existing or potential contaminants. A surface test report should be sent to the operator to confirm that there are no existing problems. Subsurface testing should be conducted as soon as possible following a surface test to evaluate any surface migration that is a result of hydrostatic pressure. Subsurface testing can include tests for hydrostatic pressure and hydrostatic intrusion.
Pipeline integrity analysis is a critical part of the rig management process. Pipeline integrity assessment is often necessary for an operator looking to enhance overall production, reduce costs, and minimize potential environmental impact. A pipeline integrity assessment will be performed at the end of the wellhead and will include a number of activities. These activities will be performed to test the pipeline for mechanical, chemical, electrical, hydraulic, or any other deficiencies. Pipe failure testing will be performed to determine if the pipe is defective. It will identify possible causes of pipe failure, which may result in premature degradation, pipe replacement, or other preventative measures.
