Everything You Need To Know About 3-Point Casing ID Caliper Services

Featured Image

In the ever-evolving landscape of the oil and gas industry, precision is not merely an advantage; it's a requirement. No process exemplifies this more than cementing, where accuracy can have significant implications for project cost and efficiency.

To help you navigate this critical process, we introduce Superior Performance Inc.’s Bump-a-Plug Casing ID Caliper, an instrument designed to eliminate the guesswork from cementing operations.

Why Precise Pumping Volumes Matter

In the complex operation of cementing oil wells, the calculation of pumping volumes sits at the core. This is the measurement that dictates the volume of cement slurry that will be required to effectively secure the well casing, providing zonal isolation and ensuring the structural integrity of the wellbore.

Accurate pumping volumes are crucial for multiple reasons. First, they prevent unwanted influxes of fluids from underground reservoirs into the wellbore - a potentially dangerous scenario that could lead to well control issues and environmental hazards.

Moreover, precision in pumping volumes also mitigates the risk of creating a cement channel behind the casing. This can occur when excess cement is pumped, creating a pressure differential that can fracture formations and cause cement to flow back around the casing. This phenomenon, known as "channeling," can compromise well integrity and lead to costly remedial cementing.

The economic implications are just as impactful. Relying on inaccurate measurements or estimations from pipe manufacturers can often lead to the pumping of incorrect fluid volumes. This results in wasted resources as the surplus cement, once mixed, cannot be stored and reused. Additionally, miscalculations can potentially extend cementing times, leading to costly delays in well completion schedules.

However, in the past, achieving the necessary level of precision was a challenge due to the generic nominal ID provided by pipe manufacturers. These numbers are often rounded off or based on design specifications and do not reflect the actual casing ID accurately. This is where Superior Performance Inc.'s Bump-a-Plug Casing ID Caliper becomes an invaluable tool, offering a solution to the challenge of achieving precise pumping volumes.

Superior Performance’s Solution: Bump-a-Plug Casing ID Caliper

Our Bump-a-Plug Casing ID Caliper takes the worry out of the cementing process with its speed and accuracy.

This tool can help alleviate the issues of accurate bumping of the cementing plugs by providing quick, accurate measurement of casing string IDs.

Once the data is collected, and an average ID is established, drilling and cementing engineers can quickly recalculate their casing string cementing displacement values.

Features and Benefits

Our Bump-a-Plug Casing ID Caliper offers an impressive array of features:

  • Accurate ID measurement within 0.00005 inch
  • A self-centering, three-point measurement head
  • Size range from 3 1/2-inch to 20-inch casing options
  • Provision of calibration rings
  • Service delivery at the pipe yard, rig site, on land, or offshore
  • Potential packaging with laser tally and thread inspection services

By leveraging these features, you can expect numerous benefits, including:

  • Precise calculation of cementing displacement values
  • Swift and error-free measurements
  • Adaptability to most casing programs
  • Fast and frequent system calibration/accuracy checks
  • Flexible service scheduling
  • Comprehensive solution for tubular preparation management
