C6 Technologies Demos Its New Well Intervention Solution

C6 Technologies, well intervention and conveyance specialist, said it has completed a world-first application of its ComTrac technology, in conjunction with its parent company, Archer.

ComTrac is said to be the only system in the world that comprises a reel of spoolable 12mm diameter semi-stiff carbon composite rod with electrical conductors. To date the technology has been proven to operate at lengths of up to 8 kilometers. Now C6 Technologies plans to extend this with applications exceeding 12 kilometers.

The two-week project in the Norwegian North Sea – which was operated by Archer – is the first time the composite rod has been used with a tractor. According to C6 Technologies, this enables intervention far beyond capabilities of conventional wireline technology in terms of length and load, particularly for horizontal wells. The scope included fishing, fluid saturation logging and perforating with long sections of high shot density guns.

Hans Kristian Hegland, CEO of C6 Technologies, said: “ComTrac is now available as a commercial solution and Archer is in the process of rolling out a number of new applications worldwide. Wells are getting deeper and longer and today there are limits to how far current intervention technology can go. The latest project with Archer demonstrates the versatility of ComTrac and its ability to perform on a wide range of applications and environments. The next step is to expand the operation limits of the technology to 12 kilometers and beyond.”

C6 Technologies is a joint venture between Archer and IKM. The ComTrac system is designed and manufactured by C6 Technologies and operated by Archer.
