The Value of Modelling

Improved efficiency

Pre-job, wireline software modelling allows trial and error without NPT, optimizing all aspects of each well intervention. Post-job, surface tension can be analysed to improve accuracy.

Test different configurations in any well trajectory to find the best option

Select the most cost effective size and strength of wireline, or slickline for any job

Assess the risk of not reaching target depth in different well trajectories

At Depth
Understand the available downhole forces and what can be achieved

SMART Planner raises the bar, improving wireline modelling on multiple fronts.

Simulate runs with unrivaled accuracy

Our new wireline intervention software accurately calculates complex interactions between cables, toolstrings and wellbores.

Introduction of torque balanced and coated cables requires more accurate modelling

Firing wireline jars should not be done without understanding the impact

A lack of investment in wireline specific modelling software presented an opportunity

SMART Planner can be used to verify less accurate models

Well Trajectory

Tortuous wellbores can be modelled accurately for cased hole or open hole with complex friction profiles

Analyze results in greater detail

The most advanced theoretical formulae combined with validation from surface tension, cable head tension and downhole movement data.

Independent configuration of well, tool and cable friction.

Integrated and dynamic jarring analysis

Inclusion of the latest stick / slip modelling formula.

All verified and calibrated by surface and downhole data upload

Summarize deployment risk using two ratios

Hold Up Margin

How close are the predicted surface tensions of different toolstrings / cables to holding up before reaching target depth.

Pickup Margin

How close are the predicted pull out of hole tensions of different toolstrings / cables to the safe working load.

Advice enhanced through in depth understanding

By quantifying and verifying the benefits of our downhole tools, ISI can offer better advice on the most cost effective solutions

Predicts surface weight and other forces for toosltrings with and without roller conveyance

Calculate the pump down range which will safely carry tools to TD, or confirm logging against production is feasible

Calculates min & max jar settings for any well profile

Analyze the impact created, velocity and displacement at the cable head, jar and end of toolstring during an activation.

Understand your options using comparative reporting

surface tension

Compare how toolstring and cable options will affect the tension at the surface.
