Pump down operation is used for horizontal wells in the oil field. Fluid is pumped to push tools down deviated or horizontal wells. Operations could include plug setting, and perforation. Accurate tool string tension readings are required for this downhole procedure.
The IPCD Pressure Compensated Downhole Load Cell is an accurate and superior load cell over wet or hydraulically compensated load cell options. Featuring proprietary pressure and temperature compensation, offering precise and real-time tool string force measurements.
Customer was able to carefully regulate tension forces on the toolstring during the pump down procedure, avoiding expensive pump off tool separation.
