As the global industry drills deeper wells and longer laterals, the associated complexities, costs and risks increase. In a longer lateral, the friction increases and the string weight on surface becomes an unreliable measurement of weight on the drill bit. In addition, surface pressure readings can no longer reliably predict the differential pressure across the bottomhole assembly when nitrogen is introduced into the drilling fluid. Coil-Link™ is a real-time downhole sensor package used to supply accurate information about downhole conditions during coiled tubing operations.
Kobold’s Coil-Link™ communicates with the surface using a mono-conductor E-line so you know exactly what is happening at the drill bit. Operators have the ability to make decisions quickly and with certainty before a problem occurs.
