SOS real-time measuring while coring (MWC) services was presented an opportunity to run the SureCore technology offshore Victoria for the CarbonNet Carbon Capture & Storage project appraisal well, managed by AGR Well Management. The coring was critical to the success of the project as the information will be used to determain if the area selected can support the Carbon Capture and Storage project.
The tool was used successfully to cut 10 cores in 8 1/2" hole section of the well. The SureCore was run in conjunction with the Baker Hughes, JamBuster multi activation coring assembly capturing a 3.5” dia core.
The SOS engineer monitored the core intake and informed the coring engineer if core was being captured successfully, jamming or milling which optimised each core run. The SureCore was also used to monitor inner barrel rotation, vibration and temperature in real-time. The accurate down hole coring information provided throughout was integral to the success of this coring project. The real-time and downloaded memory data was also used to assist in analysing each core run, jamming mechanisms and to assit with optimising the parameters for subsequent core runs.
