C-Kore Applies Its Technology to Downhole Testing

C-Kore Systems recently expanded the application of its subsea testing technology to downhole testing.

The new application was tested on Total’s K5F field off the coast of the Netherlands.

The C-Kore units helped located the source of low IR on the downhole system by plugging directly into the subsea Christmas tree. The hand-held, preprogrammable units were installed by divers who located the fault with limited diving time.

Thomas Schwerdtfeger, head of Subsea Controls for Total E&P Netherlands, said: “We were keen to test this relatively new technology in a new application to see if it would be as easy to use in a downhole testing operation. The units proved to work very well, quickly assisting us in locating the source of the short.”

Tim Overfield, managing director of C-Kore, added: “It is nice to know that our customers are so pleased with our technology, that they come back with new applications to use it in. We’ve
designed our technology to be easy to use, so it is only natural that we are finding more applications where our technology helps save our customers time and money.”
