Customer challenges

Our customer needed a cost effective and reliable solution to successfully determine where to perform a cement squeeze

Expro Excellence
  • Expro’s BRUTE® Packer and BRUTE® Unloader Circulating Valve were set and un-set multiple times along the length of the casing in an attempt to locate the source of the leak
  • Once the leak was located, a cement squeeze was initiated. Utilizing the Blackhawk Multiple Dart Catcher and two (2) Blackhawk Darts provided the operator with a mechanical barrier between the cement and mud, and an accurate indication to determine correct displacement on their cement squeeze
  • Expro’s Wireless Cement Head with SKYHOOK™ Cement Line Make Up Device was utilized to circulate the wellbore, set the BRUTE® Packer, make up the cementing line, and launch the top and bottom dart catcher darts wirelessly
  • The Multi-Service Operator (MSO) was available to provide services for all of the Blackhawk products on location, greatly reducing personnel on board (POB) and associated costs
Value to client
  • Our customer was able to successfully test the casing multiple times along the casing length to determine where to mitigate the casing leak
  • Eliminated extra trips in the riding belt by utilizing our wireless cement head with the SKYHOOK™ device, saving rig time, and improving safety
  • Simplified operations and improved cost efficiency by providing one MSO to service and run the cement head, dart catcher, and packer
  • Eliminated the need to run other costly drillable-type products that would require an additional trip and equipment to drill-out
  • A suite of Expro technical solutions was used to successfully squeeze and test the 18-inch casing, resulting in well integrity improvement
