Ultra-sensitive tubular acoustic scanning tool

This powerful, Aarbakke Innovation developed, acoustic detection module is used to:

  • Find the location of microtube(s) outside a tubing string
  • Verify if the microtube(s) have been removed or cut
  • Enable perforation without damaging microtube(s) located outside a liner
  • Detect how the tubing is placed within the casing string (high/low side)
  • Pinpoint the longitudinal contact with the casing, where cement may not be sufficiently placed
  • Detect casing and/or tubing deformation
  • Determine whether there are objects outside the tubing and identify these
  • Inspect openings made in the tubular
  • Determine wellbore path (X, Y, Z)

Live feed data

This acoustic scanning set-up can be run together with custom tools (perforators) or in conjunction with the RETRIEVE/CUT modes of Axter’s portfolio. All AxterDetect functions are live fed to the user. No interpretation required.
