Wellbore Inspector™ Client

Wellbore Inspector Client is the interactive 3-dimensional visualization component of Noetic’s Wellbore Inspector log interpretation system. This advanced visualization tool, available to well operators, is used by Noetic engineering staff to identify, assess, and interpret wellbore deformations. It provides an understanding of well conditions that cannot be matched by traditional log reports.

True Well Visualization

The oil & gas industry is targeting softer reservoirs and higher-pressure deposits and is increasingly employing advanced recovery techniques. The structural loads imposed on tubulars are more extreme and well deformations are more common. Noetic’s Wellbore Inspector system uses advanced analysis algorithms to transform multi-finger caliper data into a true 3D model of the well that cannot be matched by any other caliper analysis software. Bending, shear, ovalization, collapse, and buckling deformations are identified and characterized. Well accessibility can be determined and the underlying geological mechanisms understood.

Wellbore Inspector Client is the interactive 3D visualization component of the Wellbore Inspector system. Well operators can license the software to directly interact with their log analysis results.

Identify Deformation Mechanisms

By incorporating survey data into the analysis, Wellbore Inspector Client provides a geological reference for operators. The relationship between deformations and the surrounding geology is clear.

Determine Well Accessibility

From the results of a single caliper log analysis, Wellbore Inspector Client calculates drift diameter for any length of mandrel. Well accessibility past a deformed interval can be evaluated without even being at the well site. It is no longer necessary to waste resources running multiple gauge rings or mandrels downhole to assess well restrictions. The drift results have been successfully used to characterize deformations and quantify well accessibility challenges in various types of wells (thermal, shale gas, HPHT) for several multi-national E&P companies.

Key Benefits to Operators:

  • Understand the shape of the wellbore with a complete 3D projection that includes well deformation and trajectory
  • Explore the well with full rotational control and easy depth navigation to key locations in the well
  • Correlate deformations with well components, completion depths, and geological features
  • Determine well accessibility by calculating drift diameter dependence on mandrel length
  • Relate the well trajectory to the underlying geology with horizontal reference plane and compass orientation
  • Focus on localized deformations at a single location with the 2D cross-section view
  • Visually enhance deformation modes with multiple magnification options
  • See relationships in the data with multi-pen charts and shading of 3D view
  • Export the results to a spreadsheet for further analysis
  • Save the visualization images
